BMAA Press Release

Changes in the BMAA Technical Department.


Following the resignation of the BMAA Chief Inspector in May 2011 we have taken the opportunity to restructure the staffing of the BMAA “Technical Department”. Following discussions with the CAA, to grant approval for our plans, we are now able to announce details of the changes that have been made.


We will not be appointing a replacement Chief Inspector at the present time. We have created the role of Inspector Coordinator, and selected current Airworthiness Engineer Rob Mott to fill this position. Rob (Motty) Mott has already gained valuable experience working with the BMAA Inspectors over the past two years, including helping to organise seminars, present at training days and conduct aircraft audits. Rob Mott will now be the first point of contact for all inspection enquiries and administrative matters.


To support the Inspector Coordinator a Panel of advisors has been created. The Panel consists of Ben Syson, BMAA CTO, Paul Dewhurst and Chris Draper, both BMAA Senior Inspectors and Geoff Weighell, BMAA Chief Executive. Working with Rob Mott the Panel will assist in the selection and monitoring of the BMAA Inspectorate and also help Rob in the development of training and information material.


Behind the scenes we have already replaced the Inspector record system and have been developing a greatly improved application and appointment system that we hope to be able to use very soon.


We see this as a great opportunity to revitalise how the BMAA inspector system is handled within the BMAA office and hope that it will lead to a more productive outcome for both our Inspectors and BMAA aircraft owners.



Geoff Weighell


Chief Executive
