    Proposed changes to GA operations

    Altho' the detail is not yet complete, the following changes to the way Permit aircraft operate within GA are nearing fruition:


    The Medical Declaration to cease and the possession of a valid driving license will serve as a medical certificate.

    Group owned aircraft will, in a reversion to what used to be, be permitted to be used for ab initio training.

    Progress continues towards the approval and use of Permit aircraft for Night/IFR. It is intended that non certified instrumentation displays can be used.

    Exciting times in GA if it all comes to pass.

    The only reservation I have is that my AME saved my life with a casual aside during one medical. I probably wouldn't be here but for him.

    Of even more excitement is the work NATS are doing on developing an affordable traffic alerting system

      I think that you will find that the use of a DVLA Licence for a Medical only applies to the NPPL (Or EASA equivalent.), but not the CAA-PPL/EASA-PPL. Also it will not apply to heavier a/c and CAA Permit a/c. I'm just guessing.....

        I did write that the detail is not yet complete !

        The criteria for change is 'simplicity' and 'evidence based'.

          Interesting developments in the offing.

              Only if you want to, but who wouldn't?

                You can fly a Chipmunk vfr in daylight on an NPPL as long as you have added a tailwheel sign off to it.

                But it's unlikely that anyone would entrust one to a pilot with less than 100 hours P1, so unless there is some valid medical reason you might as well go for a full PPL.
