BMAA is thankful to the UK CAA for their pragmatic approach to this project and our partnership to streamline the approval process for new companies and products. A note of thanks must go to the owners who offered their aircraft for testing and to the test pilots involved, Chris Taylor and Dan Griffiths, for their input and contribution to the project. They continue to work with the UK CAA on the TL Stream LSM.
