At a well attended Light Aviation Association Annual General Meeting, LAA Chief Executive Officer Steve Slater took a number of questions from the floor.
Amongst the questions, in a response to a specific concern relating to Brexit and the ability to fly LAA Permit aircraft to Europe after March 2019:
Steve Slater was able to inform the meeting, that aircraft Certification operating under the auspices of the LAA Permit to fly regime are not impacted. Currently agreements to fly Permit Annexe ii aircraft across national borders are subject to bilateral arrangements with national organisations, such as the DGAC (the French Civil Aviation Authority) and ECAC (European Civil Aviation Conference). Not the more familiar EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).
