NSW PTA timeframe.

Post by Hammar » 22 Jun 2020, 6:05 pm

Has anyone recently had a Cat H PTA (full licence, not probationary licence) approved in NSW in the last month and how long did it take? My permits are now at 16 business days and counting and a FAR agent last week said Cat H permits are taking around 2ish weeks to be approved.

Applied 4/6, issued 18/6, should receive tomorrow I would say.

Was this a Cat H or Cat A/B?

I am so sick and tired of NSW FAR. This has happened at every stage for me when applying for my licences and permits where people who submit applications after me still get theirs approved before me and the FAR reasoning is "not sure, sometimes it happens." f***ing useless. Wish I could give that excuse to my customers and clients without getting grilled by management.

No definitive answer I am afraid. All over the place as stated before. Just hang in there.
