Your passenger has requested to fly into Port Elizabeth (FAPE) on Feb 3 at 1930 local for a business meeting she has. This is a private flight and you have requested the landing permit for your trip. This would be your first time to this airport but you’ve determined that as this is a smaller airfield no ground handling or any other arrangements are needed; just arrange anything needed upon arrival. FAPE is your first stop in South Africa and you may possibly travel to Cape Town (FACT) afterwards, but that’s unknown at this time.

FAPE INFORMATION:

OPERATING HOURS:
0500-2100 LOCAL MONDAY-FRIDAY
0700-1900 LOCAL SATURDAY
0700-2130 LOCAL SUNDAY

UTC CONVERSION: + 2.00

A LANDING PERMIT IS REQUIRED FOR ALL STOPS IN SOUTH AFRICA. FOR A PRIVATE NON-REVENUE FLIGHT THE LEAD TIME IS 5 WORKING DAYS, WHILE FOR A CHARTER IT’S 7 WORKING DAYS.

THIS IS AN AIRPORT OF ENTRY UPON REQUEST. THIS AIRPORT CAN BE USED AS AN AIRPORT OF ENTRY WITH 24 HOURS’ ADVANCE ARRANGEMENTS. CUSTOMS AGENTS ARE BASED OFF-SITE AND MUST BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE.

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!
