Please ensure the correct shipping address is provided from the outset as title and risk will pass to you once the order has left our premises.
Occasionally packages are returned to us undeliverable. Should this event take place every attempt will be made to contact you to make arrangements for re-shipment. Should you not be contactable after 6 months from date of sale, we will consider the transaction invalid, and the ownership of the goods transferred back to us to offset costs incurred.
Membership Certificate processing will not commence until full payment has been confirmed as being received. Payment for membership does not imply bone fide
membership until such has been approved by the relevant section. Until accepted as a full member, you will be considered as a provisional member with all the rights and privileges of a full member, but these privileges and rights can be unilaterally revoked by the relevant section committee.
You must advise us in writing of your cancellation and any such cancellation must be signed by the person who made the original purchase. The decision to accept cancellation or not, will be made by the Aero Club of South Africa General Manager and this decision will be final.
