The SAHPA Renewal forms are now available on the website if you wish to renew before you receive your forms in the post.
Please click on the appropriate links: 2013 SAHPA General Renewal & TFI Instructor Renewal Pack
It can also be found in the member???s area click here 
SAHPA will still take in the applications/ renewals and check that all the paperwork is in order before sending it to RAASA for
processing. RAASA will however post your licence directly to you. If you wish to collect it from the SAHPA office please
clearly mark it on the Renewal form. There will also be no extra costs as this is now all included in the SAHPA fee. The RAASA
licence fee will be included into the SAHPA Fee so that only once amount needs to be paid. SAHPA will do the rest. Please
ensure that all the necessary paperwork is submitted with all the appropriate signatures so that the process doesn???t get
delayed. A licence cannot be issued if the paperwork is not correct and with this you will NOT be allowed to fly. If you have
submitted your renewal and haven???t received your licence, please contact the SAHPA or RAASA office to find out if there are
any delays or if your licence has already been posted.
To renew or apply for a RAASA licence directly from RAASA, it is compulsory for you to be a current SAHPA member. The
SAHPA membership will still need to be paid to cover the FAI, Aero Club, Insurance and radio licence fees. Proof of this will
need to shown to the RAASA official.

The 2013 SAHPA committee ballot form is now available click here
It will also be sent to you by post. Please make an effort to cast your vote before the 16th of June and send it to the SAHPA
office. A confirmation email will be sent to you once received. Only 2 sections will need to be voted on and that is the SAHPA
Chairman as well as the PPG representative. The rest have automatically been appointed as no other nominations were
received for these positions.
The AGM will take place in Barberton on the 17th of June 2013 and will be held at the Barberton Golf Club (Paragliding
competition meet centre) at 6:30pm.
Good luck to the candidates.
