    BMAA News item: Microlight routine weighing requirement to be scrapped

    That's great news, thanks guys for lobbying the CAA on our behalf, just a month too late for me as my plane had to be weighed in January.

    Keep up the good work

    Noise Certificate is next and then perhaps we should be looking at annual PtF Revalidation; vital or pointless?

    This puts us fairly close to TSDR. For what its worth, I think that privately owned two seaters ought to be exempted from the annual PTF revalidation but aircraft used for training should not. Perhaps it (tin 'at on,) it would be worth considering an inspection to be carried out by a competent authority (BMAA inspector, for example,) on sale or transfer of an aircraft to a new owner as a condition of registration change.

    Foot launched can be flown dual with no licence, medical, insurance, permit and the pilot can charge the passenger for the flight. The fatal accident rate, the accident rate by which UK aviation is measured, for foot launched is much lower than for Microlights and other GA. Are we afraid of being left to make our own decisions? Footies don't seem to be.

    What about the license re val as well I made the mistake of swapping to the NPPL m and now have to do the hour with an instructor every 2 years instead of just getting my log book signed.
    I can understand that being needed if you have done no flying but when you are doing 50 to 150 hours per year to me it makes no sense

    Hi Geoff
    When does this become effective?
