Presumably you guys are talking about SACAA Midrand.
2 February this year I contacted the SACAA CPT branch to register a 406 ELT HexCode (loaded by Aircraft Spruce) for my yet to be completed RV-9 ZU-IPG. On the same day I applied for a new Radio Station licence on the ICASA website.
The good news is I now have the 5 year licence issued by ICASA. It only took 3 months, about 30 emails and a complaint to the relevant section.
The bad news is the SACAA CPT branch 'dropped the ball,' then a month later realised that ZU-IPG did not appear on 'the system.' All relevant documentation supplied enabling the SACAA to add the aircraft to 'the system' this took another month or two. I also tried to add ADSB In/Out but am not too sure about that as there is no form, no fee...
My last communication to them was exactly 2 months ago today: this was the reply...
Good Day Sir,
Apologies, I have lost sight of this one.
I have requested the relevant department to load the aircraft registration on our systems.
I will endeavour to confirm the ELT registration and hex codes by tomorrow.
I guess he dropped the ball again...
I was trying to cover all bases so as to make things easier when I eventually apply for a Proving Flight Authority, but being proactive seems not to work. A reminder will be sent on Monday.
