EXCESS INSURANCE

Please note that due to the impact of Covid and other rising expenses, the Club can no longer cover the Excess Insurance for all Club Members.

What this means  is that if you have an accident or damage Club aircraft, whether an Instructor is on board or not, you will have to fork out R20,000 to cover the excess. 

If you would rather cover this eventuality with Insurance, then please take out Excess Insurance 

We will need proof of this before your next flight, or you must sign a waiver saying you are prepared to cover the Excess Insurance yourself should it become necessary. 

For R20,000, it costs R130 per month on debit order, or you can pay it annually.  The excess insurance is YOURS, so will cover you no matter where you fly. 

It is an industry standard to have your own Excess Insurance.  We have just been an exception, but sadly, no longer. 

You can get aircraft excess insurance online through DJA, or by contacting ARC.  Their prices are very similar. (Click their logo's on the right to open their respective web pages).

RENEW YOUR PPL DOCS

Not testing this year?  Remember you can renew your PPL up to 90 days in advance without losing any time on your license! 

All you need to do is this:

1. Complete this form: CA 61-183

2. Pay the SACAA (bank details on the        above form) : presently R510

3. Do a 12 month summary of your              logbook,

 

Then:

Send certified copies of:  your summary, the last three pages of  your logbook, your medical if applicable, (certify it if it is the white and yellow copy, just a scan if it is the new A4 size medical), AND any new endorsements;   add to this pile your proof of payment and the completed form CA 61-183; email all this to the SACAA Licensing Department at aircrewapplications@caa.co.za 

Now wait.

 

If you want to be assured of a speedy result from your labours, we STRONGLY recommend you use Civil Aviation Assist to collect your papers from the SACAA and return them to you. They will need an email from you giving them permission to do this, and a copy of your collection SMS from CAA.

NOTE:

Submit a copy of your Medical, even if it's the new A4 format that is automatically submitted to the SACAA with the new online medical licensing system.

Please MAKE SURE the Pmb Aero Club has the latest copy of your license before using any Club Aircraft.  The bonus is our new SEAMS system will alert us when you are due for paperwork again.
