I see on the CAA website that it is now possible to look up your Operator and Flyer IDs, and they tempt us with the option to renew (saves pealing off a sticker at least).
I can’t see the actual link to do the renewal though.
Anybody gone through this - less than a month until mine expires so I’d assume the option would be open by now.
The option wasn’t there four weeks ago and it isn’t there now. I passed the test the day it went live so my ids run out on November 5.
I have now sent an email asking how to renew and can I keep my id. Updates as/if/when I get a reply.
Ha! Same renewal date, same email sent
They said at the time (last year) that they’d be issuing a new ID on renewal.
You’d like to think that’d changed since, but, well, you know…
Probably another excel sheet gone tits up
Not entirely relevant to the OP. I sent them a suggestion recently to allow you to change your registered email address. Surprising how many sites don’t allow you to do this.
That’s what I was expecting. Logged on to check how to get a new ID and lo, there was a way to check your details. That’s also new from last I’d looked as back when this came in they’d said it couldn’t be done. Beyond the whit of man, or some such.
Looks like you can call or email a registration team at the CAA
The CAA sent me a renewal email reminder last night.
I don’t even have that option
They’ve got the worst login / auth mechanism too.
Same. I guess we all jumped in there on day one
No option to renew still though.
One advantage of waiting until day 101 … I get to find out what happens and perhaps they have it working better by the time mine is due.
Had an email this morning inviting me to renew. Followed the link, got the code, entered it and … still no way to pay
The beauty of the 3 month grace period (freebie) FPVUK membership gave me ;o)
Nobody’s will expire until at least 5th November so hopefully they’ll have fixed it by then
Or they’ll delay it a year due to covid or EU or some other random reason
I bet you’re the types who wouldn’t apply OS updates until they’ve fixed all the bugs that show up after the first round of live testing too. You’ll never get to Valhalla with that attitude
Catalina, no more proof needed.
Or Windows ME, the last version I had on a PC I bought for my own personal use.
