Thanks Mal. Why VH I hold a PPL & at the time of registering it RAA were in discussion with CASA to get a height increase & not sure if that was going to get passed. My personal opinnion is that SAAA are better orgainised than RAA.


Benefits Rego is a one off payment not annual, I can fly in to controlled airspace.


Downside getting the C of A was lot of extra work especially with weight & balance charts Xair manufacture is really limted they have a Excell programe where you in put the weights from your aircraft press enter & if the number comes up in the green she's in balance, CASA wants a little more than that so we had a bit of work to do on that.

Congrats on getting into the air. Well done.As a side note, you can still go into controlled airspace in RAA aircraft, just need a PPL and the required aircraft equipment like transponder etc...

Yeah I know that.
