SAACA CATS & CARS

Postby ekim » Mon Mar 10, 2008 12:17 pm

Are the SACAA CATS & CARS accessible on the CAA website. If so, where? I am interested in checking up on Flight and Duty times? Thank you in advance.

Not yet! (Apart from Part 61).
A process is underway that will see publication on the CAA website, of all CAT's and CAR's, but this may still take several weeks.

Signing on at 2000 and off at 0500 the next morning, 2 x 2 hr sectors each night, Monday to Friday, would this be out of CAA Flight and Duty limits?
Thanks in advance for any reply.

You do not state single pilot or multi pilot crew.

CAR 135.02.5 and SA-CATS-ops 135

If no scheme published(authorised) in the ops manual of the operator:

Single pilot : 8 hrs from start of duty period to end of duty period. (includes preflight etc.)

If scheme is published(authorised) in ops manual then:

Single pilot - 2 sectors - assuming break in between is less than 3 hours or no suitable rest facility is available and sign in at 2000 : 10 hrs

Single pilot - 2 sectors - assuming break in between is less than 3 hours or no suitable rest facility is available and sign in at 2100 : 9 hrs

Two pilots - 2 sectors - assuming break in between is less than 3 hours or no suitable rest facility is available and sign in at 2000 : 12.25 hrs

Two pilots - 2 sectors - assuming break in between is less than 3 hours or no suitable rest facility is available and sign in at 2100 : 11.25 hrs

Suggest you make a summary of all the permutations (which I have not listed) and keep it in your flight bag with your Jepp, dangerous goods manual(summary), etc. Alternatively buy one of the air law books for com pilots from your local pilot shop and keep it in your flight bag. These books also have summaries of AWOPS etc. which will come in handy.

Ditto on what Dave said. The CEO/CCA has committed himself to making the CATS and CARS (in abreviated form) available on their website in the near future.

Hope this helps.
