Thanks to the Safety Committee  the update of our Safety Code to comply with Article 16 has been completed and is now with the CAA. Hopefully it won't be too long now, until we have our Article 16 reauthorisation and normal service can be resumed.


Once again, thank you to the membership for their continued patience.

CAA Renewal Registration 2021 



On renewal or registration of the CAA registration system members may find that they are prompted for new information, which was not asked for last year. The new fields are, Telephone, Insurer and Policy number, these are not mandatory to complete and most people are not aware of their Insurer and Policy number. You may also find that if you are changing from the SAA registering/renewing your CAA registration to going on-line direct you may be prompted to take the on-line test, which again has changed as the new test now covers a 5-year period. If you have any questions please contact the SAA Membership Secretary who will be happy to advise you (contact details of SAA Officials can be found on the SAA contacts page).   



Please contact us if you have any queries about registering for your flyer ID or operator ID.
