In line with the requirements as set out by Kevin Storie from AeroClub - we need to remind all that MISASA's MOP is in the process of being submitted and thus the process of becoming an ARO is set to take place! :)

What does MISASA, Aeroclub & RAASA do for YOU?

Aero Club fees and Aero-club subsection fees for 2011 are:

Aero Club of South Africa (Compulsory) R 270.00
Microlight & Light Sport Aeroplane Association of South Africa [MISASA] R 300.00 (ARO)
Soaring Society of South Africa (gliding) R 720.00 (ARO)
Sport Aerobatic Club of South Africa R 300.00 (ARO)
South African Home Builders Ass. Renewal R 215.00
South African Home Builders Ass. New R 390.00
South African Power Flying Ass. R 175.00
South African Balloon and Airship federation R 210.00 (ARO)
EAA National and Chapter R415
South African Gyro plane Ass. R 255.00
Assa (Flight Directors and Safety Officers) R 650.00
Assa (Informal) Service Providers R 100.00

If you fly a Microlight / LSA you must by law belong to the appropriate association. So this means that you need to belong to the Aero-Club plus a sub-section thereof. Before the ARO was issued the CAA was charged with Microlight / LSA governance. Those that support the current Government requirement for representative appropriate aviation organisations to be formed and to be self-governing see the ARO as good news. The process has been many years in the making.

The Aero-club issue an annual report and is made up of the sub-section Chairman and an executive. See http://www.aeroclub.org.za for more detail.

MISASA is the national flying club that represents all microlight and light sport aeroplane pilots in SA. MISASA is run by a Committee that is guided by a constitution and which is elected annually by the membership at an Annual General Meeting. There are approximately 1,200 Pilot members. You are invited to attend any MISASA meeting. Meetings are posted on http://www.misasa.co.za

MISASA maintains a focus on matters relevant to microlight and light sport aeroplanes and their pilots. We share African Skies with aircraft of all types and as such the co ordination and facilitation of matters of a general nature are undertaken by the Aero Club. The one without the other would not achieve the aims and objectives of the two together. Given that the Aero Club represents all forms of aviation it has the responsibility to collectively market all the sub-sections and is accountable via the Board of the Aero Club to the membership. The Board of the Aero club is made up of representatives of each of the sections of the Aero Club.

So what does MISASA do?

Advocacy:
* Has legal standing and recognised authoritative body for Microlighters & Light Sport Aeroplanes (Pilots, Instructors & AP's)
* We give a collective voice to the interests and rights of pilots and enthusiasts.
* We stand for responsible and accountable airspace governance structures without over regulation.
* Where appropriate, we act to preserve the freedom to fly, stand for legislative freedom and self governance.
* We maintain interfaces with stakeholder structures such as the CAA, RAASA, Weather Services, Dept of Sport & Recreation, FAI via CIMA, Air Traffic Services etc
* Promote the availability of third-party legal liability cover and professional indemnity insurance cover for members.
* Encourage air mindedness, safety and aviation excellence.
* Acknowledge and recognise aviation excellence through the granting of appropriate awards and designations.

Communications:
We maintain membership and external communication channels via print and electronic media enablers.

Advice:
Experienced pilots pool information on technical & training matters for the good of all...

Projects:
Collectively energising the development of recreational aviation, co-ordinating events and more...

Competitions:
Maintaining and acquiring the resources needed to stage competitive flying events and facilitating the award of national and MISASA colours...

Membership Credentials:
Aero Club membership cards identify current pilots for a variety of reasons.
