BMAA to issue Permits and Pilot Licenses

Following a meeting with the CAA yesterday actions are being taken to allow the BMAA to issue the Permit to Fly for new aircraft, saving a possible delay of up to 10 days during which the owner cannot fly the aircraft, and for the BMAA to issue new microlight pilot licenses, saving a possible delay, recently up to 4 weeks, during which the applicant can only fly with an instructor’s authorisation. Both of these changes are planned to come into force on 1 May 2019. Geoff Weighell
