FAA certification

Although South African Technical have had uninterrupted and full FAA certification since the late 1980s, over 2006 and 2007 SAT have lost some 300 staff members (a lot going to the rapidly expanding airline industry in the Middle-East and Asia), and the FAA believes it is starting to compromise their ability to offer a quality timeous service.
