Good afternoon Rob,

Please see attached decision letter and document released regarding your request.

As discussed, you are also seeking access to information regarding the following dates:

- the date Hoch Air Pty Ltd applied for an initial AOC; and
- the date the AOC was issued to Hoch Air Pty Ltd by CASA.

As such, I do not recognise this part of your request as a request under the Freedom of Information Act as you are seeking information rather than documents.

However, in order to assist you further, I advise that Hoch Air Pty Ltd initially applied for an AOC on 25 August 2015, and the AOC was granted by CASA on 12 January 2016.

Thanks again.

Regards
