I can't see why she can't fly herself - Airport operators are required to provide visitors ID card (VIC) and an ASIC equipped escort to those who do not have an ASIC.

 

When she lands, if any goons approach, they will have an ASIC, and can be her escort! Make sure she identifies herself as just a visitor, and is requiring a VIC and an escort.

 

Or MAYBE fax or email a request in advance to the airport operator so that she can take a copy with her. Don't ask for permission to land - it's a public airport. ASIC has nothing to do with permission to land.

 

Just say "I am coming in on this date. I have no ASIC and will require a VIC and an escort to and from my aircraft, as required by Regulation 3.15 of the Aviation Transport Security Regulations 2005." Job done.

 

Your friend seems to be not eligible for an ASIC as she does not seem to have need for "frequent" access - ie, more than occasionally. Lucky girl!

I never got one because I don't need one. (And it is a rip off and does nothing what so ever for security) It is not compulsory unless you visit airfields that have RPT as far as I am concerned.

Unfortunately it is compulsory to have either an ASIC 0r AVID if you hold a CASA issued pilots licence. As far as being a rip off and waste of money, could not agree more with you. Just another TAX.

Yup, just get it once for the initial licence issue and then don't renew it ever again.

I better add for clarity, even though compulsory means mandatory . I use the "stupid government rules can be ignored" rule. 008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif And I am sure thousands of others do as well.

But if you didn't have a ASIC or AVID wouldn't that make your PPL void?

Dunno and I dont care. There are alot of PPL guys out there who dont have a ASIC because they never fly into a RPT airfield. I havent flown a GA registered aircraft for years, I just fly RAA registered ones these days. GA became too expesive for me.

The way I interpret the above, I don't require a ASIC because I dont have a operational need for one . Whether flying a aircraft with numbers or letters on the side.

Do I frequently visit a secure area on a airfield ? No I never fly into a airfield that requires a ASIC to be displayed. Also what is " frequent " that could mean daily , weekly or monthly. I used to fly in and out of Archerfield a lot but that was before this ASIC crap came about. Most PPL holders west of the great divide would be like, " whats a ASIC" lol

Must get pretty expensive,i have a MSIC (marine) paid by the company and it has to be updated every 2 years which means i have to resit the test that goes with it.

 

Think i'll stick with RAA as well.

the way the application for the PPL is written seems to imply that the ASIC is required, there are tick boxes for either "i have an ASIC" or "my application for ASIC is attached" so not sure there is a way around it for someone just starting out like myself. bumma...
