ICASA radio station license

Postby AJW » Wed Sep 30, 2009 8:37 am

Is this a once off payment for an aircraft? Is it still valid with change of ownership? If not, where does one apply for a new one?

This is an annual fee and is for the call sign which is the aircraft registration so it would be valid until the expiry date.

think of it as a license disk for a car...correct as PJL explained.

Without it you can't legally drive the car, even though you have a drivers license and own a car....you need both to operate the station in the aircraft.

Application fee - R380.
Annual fee R48

When you sell your aircraft you must cancel your radio license and the new owner must apply for one. Do not do it by post. Visit one of the regional offices or you will regret it.

Have to say their website is NOT very consumer orientated.... :shock: :? not a word about any aviation related radio topic I can find...and a lot of blank spaces full of nothing... :roll:

At least you can now find the application form. It used to be hidden so well it took about 10 minutes to find it

And what to do if you install a new radio?

I would do nothing. The license gives you authority to have a radio in the aircraft. I cannot find a form to add or remove radios.

Practically, when CAA inspect they just want to see a current and valid license.

(1) Radio Station Licence fee MUST have (2) proof of payment attached - the two together (1+2) are deemed a valid document. Am I correct?

When we bought the Cheetah, we needed to take proof of payment of the radio licence to CAA. I went personally to the ICASA offices in Sandton, where I was helped promptly end efficiently. (It took about five months for the licence to arrive in the post, however.) But CAA accepted the proof of payment as sufficient.

A hint from George, a while back on Avcom - stay at least R48.00 in credit with Icasa at all times. Then the annual renewal looks after itself.

Lost again, so the proof of payment at any post office must be submitted to caa? Is there a caa application form? And on the icasa form, what is Power and Class of emission of the radio? And operators certificate nr? The aeri I talk about only has proof of payment, no radiolicence.

Power = 5W
Emission A3E

There is no need to have proof of payment if you have a valid license. Due to the inability of ICASA to issue licenses within a reasonable period of time CAA will accept a proof of payment if you have not yet received the radio license.

ie you need the valid license or a proof of payment in your aircraft to fly legally.

I agree with Chris, either a valid licence or current proof of payment. There is no way that you will be issued with a licence withou payment [-X but you can have paid and never have received a licence :roll:
