We currently have a membership application intake with a starting and an ending date, the starting application intake date starts from the 1st March the ending date is 1st September of every year, reason for us having to have a starting and an ending date for our intakes is due to the time it takes in getting your Vetting processed and your Air Safety Awareness Course, this normally takes well over a month & half.
