Here’s another chance to test your “AVsavvy”.
Background: July 2011, Sudan split into two countries to create Sudan and South Sudan. Currently the airspace for both countries is governed by Sudan.
Suppose an aircraft is overflying both Sudan and South Sudan, to whom do you send overflight permit requests?
CAA REQUIRES NOTIFICATION IF V.I.P. PASSENGERS (I.E. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS)
ARE ONBOARD AIRCRAFT. SUBMIT V.I.P. INFORMATION TO HANDLER IN INITIAL HANDLING REQUEST.
ALL DIPLOMATIC (GOVERNMENT) FLIGHTS MUST BE PROCESSED DIRECTLY BY THEIR
RESPECTIVE STATE DEPARTMENT THROUGH DIPLOMATIC CHANNELS.
FOR FLIGHTS OVERFLYING BOTH SUDAN AND SOUTH SUDAN, PERMIT REQUEST SHOULD BE
SENT TO SUDAN (NORTH) WHO WILL ISSUE PERMIT FOR BOTH SUDAN AND SOUTH SUDAN.
SOUTH SUDAN OVERFLY PERMIT ONLY NEEDS TO BE REQUESTED IF FLIGHT DOES NOT OVERFLY
South Sudan Information
OVERFLY PERMITS ARE CURRENTLY NOT REQUIRED, BUT HSSS FIR SHOULD BE NOTIFIED OF
ALL OVERFLIGHTS THROUGH THEIR FIR. – N-REGISTERED AIRCRAFT DO NOT NEED ANY U.S.
EXPORT LICENSES OR APPROVALS BY BIS OR OFAC TO ENGAGE IN FLIGHT OPERATIONS TO
OR FROM SOUTH SUDAN FROM COUNTRIES OTHER THAN SUDAN.
Based on the above information, which option below is correct? Answer below and come back next Friday to see if you got the answer right!
