BMAA Technical Office Documents for aircraft owners and inspectorsThe BMAA Technical Office is able to provide members with information and assistance for the repair of a BMAA aircraft. The section below will guide you through the information sources.
All two seat Microlight aircraft are subject to airworthiness regulations which ensure that each design is approved as airworthy. Each of these aircraft is awarded a Permit to Fly by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. The Permit is validated each year by having an inspection and check flight. The inspection is carried out by an Inspector authorised by the BMAA. The owner may carry out their own check flight.
If an aircraft becomes damaged it will need to be repaired to return it to an airworthy condition. Some repairs require approval, others do not.
Repairs NOT REQUIRING approval. A repair that is purely by replacement does not require explicit approval. To classify as
a pure repair by replacement all replacement parts used in the repair must be approved, and must be bolted or otherwise fixed in place by a mechanism that does not require a fabrication process to fit.
Repairs REQUIRING approval. All repairs that are not purely by replacement require explicit approval. Approval MUST
be sought prior to the repair being implemented.
The BMAA Technical Office is able to assess damage and approve repairs for our members' aircraft.
