Important changes to ASIC processing         13 June 2017
Over the last couple of months RAAus has been keeping members informed regarding changes to the system of issuing ASICs. Please see the following resource for updates on these changes: Identity Security Regulatory Amendments
One option RAAus was exploring as a result of these changes was working with CFIs to provide assistance to members when renewing or applying for an ASIC. Following further investigation and review, the RAAus Board has taken the decision to no longer be an issuing body for the purposes of ASIC.
The new system carries with it complex, and what RAAus believes to be, onerous changes. As an example, face to face processing requirements will inconvenience our members and place pressure on our CFIs. The processes are both burdensome and administratively heavy with no obvious safety or security improvement. Implementing the new changes would add unnecessary cost to RAAus meaning the delivery of this service has essentially become unsustainable.
Furthermore, the risk placed onto our CFIs, staff and the Board has been assessed as too great for RAAus to accept. As an example, as an issuing body, anyone processing an ASIC application will be required to identify fraudulently prepared and forged documents and there are penalties for failure to take all the steps necessary to identify such documents. RAAus does not believe this is the role of our organisation.
Therefore, from 1 August 2017, RAAus will no longer accept applications for an ASIC or renewals for an ASIC, including applications from RAAus members.
Any application lodged before this date will be processed in accordance with the current arrangements.
To assist members after 1 August 2017, RAAus will provide a list of ASIC providers on our website.  Please click here for your closest Issuing Bodies.

MMM June 2017

Coldstream Presidents report.

Good day to all the Coldstream flyers,
 Activity at the club has been consistent over the last few months with good weather most weeks and weekends with many out and about. Congratulations to the CFC Comp team that took on the inter-club competitions and came away with a back to back win. Let’s hope we can get the trifecta next year. “Well Done”.
Friday nights get-togethers seem to be well attended and consistent as well and seeing that is always good.
The important thing as the membership year comes to an end and we are getting close to our A.G.M, One major change that will affect us all is our membership fee increase.
This has come about due to the club having to take out a hangar insurance policy. This cover is for its members and their visitors while around the airfield. The operators of the airfield have for some time now had concerns and we on the committee agree this is the responsible action to take. The club has always maintained a low fee structure and will always keep it fair but as the club grows so will the costs around it. I believe our low fee structure is in comparison to other like club/organisations.
Annual Renewal subs are now as follows:
I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the A.G.M and to another year of great fun and tales around the CFC fire ” Thanks, Chuck ” Its an Awesome winter addition “.
Regards and Happy cloud dancing.
