SACAA provides clarity on whether a parachute is an aircraft

This General Notice serves to address the uncertainty regarding whether a “parachute” falls within the ambit of the definition of the word “aircraft”, as defined in the Civil Aviation Act, 2009 (Act 13 of 2009) (“the Act”) and the associated Civil Aviation Regulations, 2011 (CARS, 2011) and to provide clarity to the civil aviation industry and the general public at large.
