From 1st December 2016, the Civil Aviation Authority will only be able to accept applications for Flying Displays and Specials Events, plus Unusual Aerial Activity notifications online.
This online system will replace the existing SRG1303 and SRG1304 form applications and allow you to:
- Make multiple applications
- Save the form to re-use
- Calculate fees automatically
- Pay by credit or debit card so the CAA can start to assess your application immediately
And, as submissions are automatically verified, there is less chance of being able to submit an application without all the information the CAA need to process it. The CAA will continue to accept and process mail and email applications using SRG1303 and SRG1304 that are received or post marked 30 November 2016. But applications from the 1 December 2016 will have to be made online. As the majority of payments are already made by credit or debit card the CAA will be removing the BACS payment facility in the near future.
