    Should the Forum be only open to members?

    Who are we trying to keep out? CAA? AAIB? LAA?

    They will all just pay the fee so they can see what's being said.

    Joan,

    They must have the numbers or how would they deduce that 30% of their most serious infringers were not transponder equipped?

    BMAA Amalgamation with LAA - News update

    Thanks for the update, Paul.

    I believe we can achieve much more by working together where there is a joint interest than we would achieve as one association, facing every issue.

    I also thank you for such a detailed post, it answers a lot more questions than it raises and I think we can all see that much of it was inevitable, as you say - this never having happened...

    Laurie, I think being asked to surrender his membership card would have had no material effect on events and it would certainly not have affected the PL cover of John or the BMAA as both were covered...

    Something that I picked up some of the posts in the last 24 hours was the call that JW was a criminal, how could he have been supported.

    A very sensible decision Joan.

    It will certainly save having to answer any awkward questions.

    A microlight actually paints quite a good radar return, whether metal bodied or not so the only time we will not be visible is if we are in a land shadow. If we are in such a location, first a...

    Andy,

    Maybe 'solved' was not quite the correct word, but I did suggest this when TMZs were first mentioned back in May on the BMAA eGroup
