Permit process improvements

The BMAA has agreed a process with the CAA for a faster turnaround for the issue of the first Permit and Certificate of Validity for new microlights.
Instead of having to wait for postal delivery of original documents before the BMAA can complete the issue process the CAA have agreed to authorise the issue of the Certificate of Validity on receipt of an electronic copy of the Permit document. The process then becomes even better because we can now send copies of the document to the owner by email to confirm issue and the owner can then start flying, allowing the hard copy documents to catch up in the post.
The new process can save up to a week in document turnaround time. The first process happened today with the CAA signing a document in the morning and the owner being sent his full papers just hours afterwards.
We hope to be able to get a similar process in place for Permit renewals in the near future.
