Trike Pitot Static check for ATF

Unread post by Frair Tuck » Fri May 31, 2019 9:23 am

Morning all,

Originally posted on the Microlighters forum, but as it has minimal viewing traffic maybe someone on AVCOM could help.

According to the CAA CA 24-03 Application for the Renewal of an Authority to Fly NTCA, the requirement for application requires a Pitot Static check as per CATS 44 Annex A, 1.3.

Item 4 states, 'Check altimeters and airspeed indicators for accuracy'

Has anyone submitted and received the Authority to Fly for their trike in the past few weeks, where a Pitot Static check has been done?

If so, was the check done by the AP or an AMO, how and who (in the Pretoria area)?

Thanks in advance.

As your AP if he is rated or he will refer you to someone authorised to dot it.
