With due consideration to COVID-19,  no documents to be handed in or sent by courier for processing will be accepted. All clients are to submit documents electronically in PDF format.

Please note that if the addition of aircraft is requested for inclusion on the Opspec of an ATO and that aircraft does not reflect on our electronic system, that there will be a 14 working days delay in processing, as the aircraft is not registered on the "SACAA Electronic System" and we will have to forward your application and associated documents to "Aircraft Registry". As a result, please make sure that your application and associated documents are submitted electronically. We can only process your application once the aircraft is registered on the system.

Aircraft will not be added onto an Opspec until such time that "Aircraft Registry" has brought the SACAA Electronic system up-to-date.

In general, please allow for at least 7 working days for a response to your email.
