jock Posted November 26, 2011 Share Posted November 26, 2011 GA Safety Partnership launched Wednesday, 23 Nov 2011 A new initiative has been set up to address general aviation safety issues in the UK, instigated by the CAA along with the leading general aviation and sports and recreational membership associations. This will cover the full general aviation remit - including a variety of different activities, and a range of aircraft from the smallest right through to business jets, for both recreational and business-related purposes. The initiative will draw on relevant research and data to help identify and quantify the priority safety issues. Together with work being undertaken on reviewing the Regulatory Approach to Recreational Aviation, a more proportionate emphasis in the general aviation community will emerge along with any safety improvement strategies that might be identified Participants in the project include, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA); the British Balloon and Airship Club (BBAC); the British Gliding Association (BGA); the British Helicopter Association; the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA); the General Aviation Safety Council (GASCo); the Helicopter Club of Great Britain; the Light Aircraft Association (LAA); representatives from Pilot and Flyer; and, the CAA's Safety Regulation Group. Although not mentioned above I|assume the BHPA wil be included. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
