Who Should Report

Who Should Report

If you have had an accident call 0508 ACCIDENT (0508 222 433).

If you are the certificate holder, the pilot-in-command or person involved then you need to report the occurrence to the CAA, within 10 days for accidents and serious incidents and within 14 days for incidents.

The CAA welcomes reports from anyone who is aware of any accident, incident, or possible incident.

Anyone can also report an aviation safety concern using 0508 4 SAFETY (0508 472 338), or email isi@caa.govt.nz. A concern might be a low-flying aircraft or someone talking on a cellphone during flight, or it could be substandard maintenance on an aircraft or spray drift from helicopters.
