Member Alert!     Member Renewals
Dear Members,
We apologise for any inconvenience in paying your Membership fees account through to June 2018.
We had worked through the process and mechanism to make this transition with our IT provider, and it had been confirmed that the 'system' would support the transition with ease. 
Unfortunately however, the IT system has failed us and it may be necessary for you to make payment via two separate transactions. If your renewal notice includes a pro-rata period, plus full year membership, the system will only accept one payment at a time. You will be required to pay the pro-rata period, then log back in to make the next payment. Once both payments have been made it will take your membership up to 30 June 2018. 
Next year it will be a simple one off payment. 
Thank you for your forbearance and to the Members who were kind enough to advise us they had issues making a payment. 
Of course, if you require assistance making payment please contact the office.

CASA AvMed Certification Review

SAAA along with all stakeholders in the aviation community were invited to make submissions in respect of CASA’s current review of Aviation Medical certifications.


SAAA naturally delivered a submission. In summary, we have been and continue to advocate like many others both here and in other countries for a system that is more suited for private pilots irrespective of whether they may be operating to VFR, NVFR, IFR or hold other license categories or endorsements. In developing our submission, we have been fortunate to draw on the expertise of many of our Members with a variety of backgrounds from highly qualified and experienced aviators and professional pilots, to those with medical and DAME experience. We thank all of our Members who contributed.


CASA reported receiving around 160 submissions from pilots, industry associations, flying organisations and medical professionals. Those submissions where the author has provided permission for publication are now available on the CASA website from the link below. SAAA’s submission is included.
