Most of you remember during 2020 the Aero Club hosted a web based system to support maintenance & proficiency flights during lockdown, which was developed by a few of our members within a record time frame. As it involved the upload and verification of documents and an approval cycle by the CAA, this system became the basis for extending the development into a fully-fledged ATF renewal system – which is now known as AeroAssist.
AeroAssist is a web based system that can be used by members of Aero Club to facilitate Authority to Fly applications with CAA.
The functionality of the system allows for the upload of all required documentation that must be submitted with the application. Aircraft details and applicable documentation will be saved to a master document set for the aircraft and will be available for subsequent applications; making it easier for the user the next time an application is submitted.
Applicants are kept up to date with regards to application progress via their preferred communication method - sms or e-mail. When the Authority to Fly has been issued by CAA, it will be stored in the system and automatically e-mailed to the applicant.
As an additional service, we also send a reminder at the appropriate time when an Authority to Fly is due.
