Permit revalidations can be applied for from the CAA online using the web url belowhttps://www.caa.co.uk/permitstofly/default.aspxIf you are a fullmmember of the LAA (£75.00 per annum) you can also revalidate your permit through them. Initially there is a £125.00 one off payment for them to adopt the aircraft so the first year stings a bit. However you do get lots of benefits by joining such a large organisation of fellow GA aviators.http://www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk/A permit can now be renewed at Rochester. Carol Brightwell is the person you need to speak to at Arion Aviation Limited. Tel: 07824 553306 Generally please give them at least 2 weeks notice.

Acknowledgements have now been sent by TAG. No further news but I will try and keep you up to date with any developmentsThis ludicrous and greedy proposal by TAG at Farnborough will engulf a vast ammount of class G airspace. This will undoubtably hurt Gyro pilots as it makes already narrow busy corridors far smaller. Furthermore when the regulations change later this year regarging minimum separation from cloud vertically in controlled airspace it could be almost impossible to travel south at allPlease write in and object - you can use the link but any written objection must be considered.Click on the image to see the extent of this airgrab or copy and paste the link below into your browser.How can interested parties participate in the formal consultation?The TAG Farnborough Airport Airspace Change Proposal website (www.consultation.tagfarnboroughairport.com) provides comprehensive information about the Airspace Change Proposal and the consultation process.
