Importing a Jabiru back to SA

Unread post by andrem » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:34 pm

My Jabi was built in George and exported to Namibia without first being registered in SA. I would like to import the aircraft as NTCA and therefore assume that RAASA will be able to advise on the process. Am I correct? Can anyone at RAASA guide me in terms of process or an agent to use?

The aircraft register is still a CAA function regardless of NTCA or certified.

Although difficult to get hold of, contact Monica at CAA registrations dept for full info.

Assuming that by 'built in George' you mean built by the factory, then the relevant bits that I can think of are:
24.01.2 (1) Before a non-type certificated aircraft, other than an aircraft classified in
paragraphs (k) and (l) in regulation 24.01.1(2), is considered to be airworthy it shall –
...
(2) In the case of –
...
(b)production built aircraft, only those aircraft, of which the type design, the local or
foreign manufacturing organisation and facility, the local assembling organisation
and facility or agent/distributor, and the build standard has been approved by the
Director may be built or imported and flown within the Republic.
47.00.5 (1) An application for the registration of an aircraft and the issuing of a certificate of
registration shall be made to the Director in the appropriate prescribed form.
(2) An application referred to in sub-regulation (1) shall be accompanied by –
...
(b) in the case of a non-type certificated aircraft which is imported into the Republic for the
first time or returns to the Republic and has to be re-registered on the register in terms of
Part 24, if a –
(i) Production-built aircraft
(aa) a certificate or notification of cancellation from the appropriate authority of the
State or territory in which the aircraft was last registered; or
(bb) a certificate or notification of non-registration from the appropriate authority of
the State or territory from which the aircraft is imported; and
(cc) a copy of the certificate of conformity issued by the manufacturer;
(dd) the original of –
(A) the valid authority to fly or flight permit or other similar document, as the
case may be, issued by the appropriate authority of the State or territory
in which the aircraft was last registered; or
B) an export authority to fly or flight permit or other similar document, as
the case may be, issued by the appropriate authority of the State or
territory from which the aircraft is imported;
(ee) confirmation that a certificate of acceptance for the non-type certificated
aircraft has been issued by the Director;
(ff) the supporting documents from the South African Revenue Service issued in
terms of section 38, 39 or 44 of the Customs and Excise Act, 1964, as
prescribed in the Document SA-CATS 47.
Should not be a major hassle, but you will probably need to get some of that paperwork from the factory. Perhaps give them a call?
