NTCA Build number register ?

Unread post by Multirotordronepilot » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:04 am

I recall around 15 years ago we had access to a build number register on the CAA website. Does this still exist some where else now, perhaps RAASA ? I have searched the SACAA site but it is not available anywhere.

I have not seen the register for a while. The only requirement for the CAA to make it available is:
(iv)the Director or the organisation designated for the purpose in terms of the Act, as the case may be, must retain a register of build numbers issued and make relevant information available to any authorised officer, inspector or authorised person who needs such information for the purpose of oversight and inspection.
So they must make it available on request to specific authorised people, but there is no requirement to make it public.

Thank you Justin, I was hoping you would weigh-in. Just a pity it is not the answer I was hoping for. :(
