  • Interesting news...

    The BMAA have a news page on the web site, but I find it easy to miss interesting stuff amongst the formal stuff.

    Latest, announced a few days ago and again at the BMAA AGM yesterday is a new additional 8.33kHz channel available for microlights. The 129.830 channel (previously 129.825MHz frequency) was always only intended for air/ground communication at microlight fields. The announcement is that an adjacent channel (129.835) has been allocated to microlight air/air situational awareness communication.

    There appears to be no further guidance about what constitutes 'situational awareness' communication, but I suspect discussing last night's football or the choice of pub for the evening meal might be frowned on.



    Feel free to spread the word and to tack other news that interests you onto this thread.

      Much more interesting today is the notice from LAA/BMAA of new talks re EASA and with the 600kg limit in view.

        ... and of 'closer co-operation' between the two organisations.

            Pity about the American spelling (bringing out my inner Rees-Mogg, perhaps ) but good news nonetheless, I think.

            BMAA issues pilot licences

            I trust the delays will be significantly shorter than the old CAA ones.

              Sign of the times Joan. Though some might say that Rees-Mogg has helped to accelerate the Americanisation of our culture!
              Congratulations on the taichi role by the way.

                  In terms of writing style guide, I can see entirely why he issues one. It's not as if writing style guides are unusual - most newspapers have one, all but the smallest businesses will have one, even the BMAA's own Microlight Flying has one (you can find it [here]).

                  Tha wun't expec a Mogg-bod to put out a write up for him in mispelt colqualims would the? You might enjoy this item [here] - sorry it's written; I couldn't find a You Tube version

                    Meanwhile, Geoff Weighell has been exercising his own writing skills on our behalf in response to CAA consultations.

                        CAA 600kg EASA opt-out consultation ends 29/11/19

                        Just a reminder, if you have views and haven't expressed them to the CAA yet, now's the time to do it ~ especially if your view isn't the same as the official BMAA one.

                          Consultation for amateur built aircraft to be acceptable for training

                          The BMAA can't be bothered, it seems, to put this up on their web site. So you can discuss it on the Microlight Forum
