Prior to conducting a flight, a requirement of conducting a flight is that defence must approve the aircraft’s movement in and out of the base.
To simplify this, a form called the Aircraft Movement Request form needs to be filled out and submitted for approval prior to conducting a flight.
The club has made available on the website an online flight notification form to make it easier to submit.
All Aircraft Movement Request form must be submitted with enough notice to allow an approval to be returned 2 hours prior to flight departure.
We have been able to work on driving this don from 24 hours notice so please ensure where you can, you provide 24 hours notice of flight.
For flights on a weekend that have not been approved the Friday prior, you must still provide the 2 hours notice at a minimum
Over a weekend, when you submit an online flight notification this SMS is automatically generated.
If planning to conduct a flight within 2 hours, call the BCP number listed in ERSA for verbal approval
