Preservation protocol for your specific aircraft engine from the following link: https://www.aeroclub.org.za/engine-preservation-maint-prototocol/
The GA & RA Flight Authorisation Application can be obtained at the following link: http://www.aerosys.co.za/aeroclub/
This webpage will provide access to applications to allow for flights in our various GA/RA disciplines to take place for the maintenance of our flying proficiency, or more specifically “Recency”, as it will be expected that you are sufficiently proficient to fly in the first place.
The process to be followed will be defined within each discipline as listed below in the header, prior to completing the application. All Aero Club Sections in terms of flying disciplines have been catered for as well as GA. This process supports the intent of the Government Gazette No 43493 dated 2nd July 2020 as well as the CAA General Notice # GAD-2020/003 dated 3rd July 2020 (See link below). Submitting the application will result in an approval email notification – valid for the next 7 days with no flying limits (to be printed and available when you fly), after which you can apply for a repeat application as necessary.
Of importance to note is that flying within the constraints as indicated is to ensure that the spread of the virus is contained, thus the protocols you agree to are to be complied with. In this regard, proficiency flying will only be allowed to take place from a single airfield or base, i.e. no destinations other than the same airfield or base of operations you departed from. Outlandings for touch and go’s will be permitted.

URGENT APPEAL - 14/07/2020
URGENT APPEAL to Members, Pilots & Aviators, General & Recreational Aviation fraternity
I have on several occasions asked that members be mindful of the lockdown provisions and with this in mind, the allowances that have been made to aviation. The allowances ranged from initially the maintenance/health flights to only recently the proficiency flights. We have been made aware of folks disregarding the regulations and pilots flying without any form of permission and for reasons by own choice. That what has been put in place for recreational aviation came at a great sacrifice of time and negotiations with the DoT. It is a grave concern to us and to SACAA that, although they agreed to make the process as accessible and easy as possible, there are individuals that completely ignore the regulations and fly without any form of permission.
Currently, there is no single RA flight allowed in South Africa without some form of permission or submission. We sincerely need everyone to comply as enforcement is currently done by the South African Police and that they have and will arrest individuals that disregard the provisions of lockdown. These breaches of lockdown are also reported to the Minister of Police and frankly stated, judging from past actions, he will simply lobby to withdraw all privileges from Recreational Aviation – no different to what has happened to alcohol sales.
For those folks that fly thinking that they will still be covered by their insurance policies, need to avail themselves of the facts. Claim repudiation is real! I appeal to not only members but that entire GA/RA fraternity that are flaunting the regulations and non-compliance to the allowed privileges to realise that by your rogue actions, that you are merely jeopardising it for the entire fraternity.
Please folks, your co-operation is of paramount importance
John Boucher (Chairman MISASA)
BE SAFE EVERYONE!
Comments from the Chairman of MISASA
Please navigate to our website governance page. We have updated several documents relevant to the MISASA ARO. In particular, a revised constitution. Changes in the industry have necessitated a constitutional revamp. We urge you to read through the proposed document and kindly pass comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a leading recreational aviation stakeholder, MISASA is intimately involved with interaction with CAA.
Be SAFE and SAFETY Minded
MISASA is a members organisation that exists to benefit its members. Over the years, MISASA has influenced the legislation that governs recreational flying in South Africa and always looking to guide its development to be the most beneficial for the members. MISASA provides a valuable information source for recreational pilots and inter alia organises or supports flying events to encourage skills development and a fun and social side to the sport. Given the fact that we have included NTCA representation up to a MTOW of 1663kg's, we thus make provision for PRODUCTION BUILT NTCA aircraft such as the Bushbaby Safari, Jabiru 4 series, Sling 2 & 4 and Vans Aircraft to name but a few.
