Verification of New Zealand Flight Crew Licences

Recently, there has been an increasing demand from licence holders requesting that CAA provide letters verifying the authenticity of their New Zealand documents, either directly to themselves, or to an overseas aviation authority.

The CAA has now introduced a formal process that must be followed before any letter of verification will be produced.

Applicants are required to forward to CAA, a completed form CAA602 together with all the applicable information and items detailed on the form.
