British politicians have demanded that the UK government reject current proposals on revised flight duty and rest times from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
After a long period of strained relations between the UK general aviation community and the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the two groups are working together constructively to push for the implementation of recommendations from the strategic and regulatory reviews that they jointly concluded in June.
Users of corporate, business and executive aircraft in the UK are working to understand the implications of proposed new civil aviation rules, especially those governing emissions. The Civil Aviation Bill, published in June, covers the next 30 years’ development of air travel in the UK.
The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is conducting a strategic review of business and general aviation and how these industries should be regulated. This will be put to the CAA board at its June meeting and, significantly, will be considered before the authority issues its final ruling on controversial changes to safety regulation charges.
The British Business and General Aviation Association (BBGA) expects to have a more constructive relationship with the UK government following the acceptance by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of new strategic and regulatory reviews of the country’s general aviation industry.
