Home Office Consultation: Advance information requirements for international General Aviation flights
On Monday 24 April the Home Office launched a consultation on ‘General Aviation: Advance information requirements for international flights’.
The consultation can be found online here: Advance information requirements for international General Aviation flights - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
Have your say!
We are seeking views from the General Aviation sector on a proposal to introduce new regulations requiring persons responsible for international GA flights to submit information online and in advance about flights to and from the UK and persons on board for immigration and policing purposes. These regulations would be underpinned by a civil penalty regime.
When do I have to return my response?
We encourage you to take the time to read the proposal and respond to the consultation which closes on Friday 16 June.
Join online sGAR familiarisation sessions
In March 2019, the Home Office launched the s-GAR “submit a general aviation report’ web service, enabling the submission of information online and in advance about international GA flights and persons on board.
During the consultation period the Home Office will be hosting online sessions demonstrating the sGAR portal. If you would be interested in joining, please email GeneralAviationConsultation@homeoffice.gov.uk.
