OBJECTION TO THE PROPOSED CHANGES TO PART 139 LEGISLATION WITH RESPECT TO REGISTRATION AND LICENSING OF AIRFIELDS

The CAA has proposed changes to Part 139 Legislation, which, if signed into Law, will require ALL airfields, including private airstrips and helipads, to be registered and licensed. The proposal requires that every such airfield or helipad should pay an annual licensing fee and should provide all emergency fire fighting and medical services.

In addition, the proposal includes the requirement for ALL aircraft above 450kg MAUW but below 5700kg MAUW, with the exception of certain emergency aircraft, to land and take-off ONLY from such registered airstrips and helipads.

The Proposals, if accepted, would have the effect of destroying the very fabric of General Aviation in South Africa and are unfair, draconian and practically, un-enforceable.

I object in the strongest possible terms to the proposal and insist that it is scrapped in its entirety.
