ARTICLE 16 - UPDATE

 

As you will have no doubt heard, our Article 16 re-authorisation was not granted. The CAA have given us a list of the areas that we have to address and this is in the process of being completed. We were offered, and have gladly engaged the assistance of Mr John Miller, a member of the Warrix club and an ex CAA inspector. This will hopefully ensure that when the resubmission is made, that it will be fully compliant with the CAA's requirements. Until then, members must continue to fly under the "Open Category" unless they have decided to join the BMFA or the LMA which will allow them to fly under Article 16. If SAA members need the benefits of flying under Article 16, the most cost effective option is to become an Associate Member of the LMA.

 

Once again, thank you to the membership for your continued support and patience.

SAA Chairman
