returning to flying after covid-19
As of the 12 May the government has not made it clear whether their advice to stop all recreational flying, published on 31 March 2020, has been rescinded as the lockdown within England is set to be relaxed allowing other activity including travel and sports to restart. We are aware that the same relaxation is not yet in force in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
We are working closely with both the Light Aircraft Association and the British Gliding Association to obtain guidance from the top levels of Government and the CAA with respect to officially withdrawing the guidance published on the 31 March which called for recreational aviation to cease for the time being. Our approach is that our recreational activity can be carried out safely with consideration to Government guidelines for social distancing and other measures to prevent the spread of covid-19.
As soon as we have had an answer, we will relay it to our members without delay. We are aware that the same relaxation is not yet in force in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
