Scam alert – AOC holders targeted in automated telephone scam

23 March 2021

We've become aware that some operators have received an automated phone message claiming to be from us suspending their air operators certificate.

This is a scam – please report it to Scamwatch.

Please be vigilant when answering calls or receiving messages from people or organisations claiming to be from CASA.

All formal communications from us concerning air operator's certificate or other permissions will be in writing. Under no circumstance will we threaten on the phone and ask for your details.

If you’re unsure about whether an interaction with us is genuine, do not reply. Call us on 131 757 instead.
