OPERATION AT SPECIAL AIR EVENTS
It has become increasingly clear that important management responsibilities, processes and procedures at air shows, and related events, particularly regarding flight operations are not correctly understood and therefore not always complied with in all respects. In terms of the agreement entered into between the Authority and the RAASA, the latter “shall be responsible for the control and co-ordination of air shows as well as for provincial, national and international sporting aviation displays in accordance with the guidelines approved by the CAA, events and competitions”.
The intent of this AIC is aimed at clarifying the issues in this regard. It must be reiterated that the onus to comply with all statutory requirements rests with the air show organiser.
The risks and legal liabilities implicit to non-compliance with such requirements must be clearly understood by the organising entity.
The following is a summary of the basic requirements and principles regarding the management of these events, including flight operations and demonstrations which may take place on any part of the runways or any portion of the airfield on the demarcated airside.
Please find herewith all necesarry applications and documentation relating to any special air events.
