Our new Accident Investigation course is a comprehensive course, covering an investigation into all - from a ‘minor incident’ to a more serious accident.
As you know , only the SACAA are permitted to investigate a fatal accident within our borders. However you may wish to attend and monitor the scene, and certainly you need to understand what happened in those accidents which the CAA may not wish to come out to and investigate.
The SACAA classifies an accident according to the injuries and damage to the aircraft and only investigates fatal or “serious” accidents. The SACAA may require the operator to conduct their own investigation as to the causes and to recommend remedial action. Insurance companies also may require the operator to submit an accident report even if the CAA conducts an investigation.
