WINDGURU is a favourite hour-by hour, indicator of wind, temperature and rain ie low cloud.
WINDY.COM is accurate and comprehensive, and takes a little time to get to know.

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 61-01.16
2. Pay the SACAA (bank details on the above form) : presently R480
3. Do a 12 month summary of your logbook,
Send certified copies of: your summary, the last three pages of your logbook, AND any new endorsements; add to this pile your proof of payment and the completed form CA 61-01.16; send all this to the SACAA Licensing Department.
If you want to be assured of a speedy result from your labours, we STRONGLY recommend you use Civil Aviation Assist to deliver your papers to the SACAA and return them to you.
You no longer have to submit your Medical, this is now done automatically 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.
VFR PLANNING SOFTWARE
One of the BENEFITS of CLUB MEMBERSHIP is that you do not need to take out excess insurance to hire Club Aircraft !
However if you go somewhere else, or have your own aircraft, you will need to have excess insurance, or between R20,000 to R 30,000 lying around in the event of an accident or incident that leads to aircraft damage.
This is the official website for the South African Civil Aviation Authority.
Here you can access all the forms you need to renew your license, give notice of change of address, access the up to date CAT's and CARS free of charge, and access the AIP's, AIP Sups and AIC's online !
Although you can access the NOTAMS from this site as well, they are not always up to date and you have to wade through EVERYTHING. It it far more efficient to use the source site for these through ATNS's site :
