Bringing new light aircraft between 450-600kg under national regulation

Closed 29 Nov 2019

Opened 18 Oct 2019

Overview

The CAA has the option to directly regulate a category of light aircraft of a greater weight than previously allowed by EU regulation. The proposal is for the UK to consider an ‘opt out’ from current European regulation in favour of national regulation.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation explores the merits of the UK adopting this provision and sets out the views of a working group which we brought together comprising of general aviation stakeholders.

Consultation document

The consultation document summarises the key provisions within the proposed regulatory changes and explores their implications from an airworthiness, flight crew licensing and operational perspective. Consultation questions are included in appendix A.
