I have tried it ith the Remos from the USA, and believe me, it was agony o get through all the processes
Firstly you have to ake sure it's type accepted first in SA
Then you ave to make sure you have a FAA and SA CFI to do conversions on it ith the overseas pilot and CAA certification
Then you have to die register it wore you can register it in SA, nd then go through all the motions of test flights and ATF procedures with a SA. Test pilot Good luck
