Callsign Registration

Unread post by Frik Roux » Sat Jun 26, 2021 1:45 pm

Having bought another aircraft, I wanted to apply for a radio license on Thursday, only to find out that the registration number is not on the ICASA system. Sent E-mails to their spectrum licensing department yesterday morning first thing, to ask them to add the number. Still nothing.

Does it take longer than a day to do this, and if not whom could I contact in order to speed things up a tad?

Frik please will you post an email address at ICASA where I might expect someone to reply to me. I am attempting to renew a radio license for an LSA

Hi Frik

Same issue yesterday. New application after change of ownership and reg does not appear in the search when on that page of the online application. Had a ZT and ZU option but not my ZS?? So what I did was leave it as unknown and instead put my reg and type in the aircraft details box on the right. Have submitted it and uploaded proof of payment. You can fly with the proof of payment in your docs instead.

Cheers
