Training in jointly owned amateur built microlights

Today the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) published two documents, an exemption and a permission, the result of which is that certain flight training and testing can now be carried out in jointly owned amateur built microlights.

You can access the documents here (.pdf) and here (.pdf).

Before rushing out and starting any training it is important that you understand what is allowed and what is not allowed under the new conditions. The BMAA guidance document should be read and fully understood before you undertake any training or testing in these aircraft. The document is available for download here (.pdf).

This permission was the result of a BMAA request first made to CAA in October 2004. It has taken many hours of application and cooperation with the CAA to achieve this result. All pilots of these aircraft can benefit from the permission, even non-members, and it is another example of the work undertaken by the BMAA to help make microlight flying easier and cheaper for all.
