CAA EC Rebate Scheme - ending soon

The Department for Transport funded EC Rebate Scheme is nearing its end, with the application window closing on 31 March 2024. The scheme aims to improve airspace safety by encouraging the adoption of EC devices that enhance situational awareness for pilots. Eligible applicants still have an opportunity to claim a 50% rebate on the purchase cost of an EC device, up to a maximum of £250.

At the same time, the CAA is investigating Electronic Conspicuity and how it fits into future airspace use. This is ongoing but the group may report on their research soon. 

Also, GASCo, the flight safety council, will be releasing a study into EC and Human Factors (i.e. how we use EC) during October.
