Interesting developments for UK Single Seat Microlights

Post by lookout »

The UK CAA announces public consultation into de-regulation of all single-seat microlights

If successful, this will extend the present single seat deregulated (SSDR) category,(currently limited to 115Kg) to include all single seat microlight aircraft as defined within Annex II. All such aircraft would then be able to be designed and constructed either privately or commercially without the airworthiness oversight of either a member association or the CAA.

As with the previous 115Kg SSDR category, accountability for initial and continuing airworthiness would remain with the aircraft designer, builder and owner; there would be no requirement for a UK Permit to Fly, or any other form of CAA approval. Operation of all microlights would continue to require the pilot to hold a UK or EASA PPL / NPPL or LAPL and comply with the Rules of the Air.
