Testing small experimental aircraft made easier

We’ve launched new, simpler requirements for approving the initial flight testing of small experimental aircraft in the UK.

We hope this will benefit small-scale aircraft designers and manufacturers by reducing the red-tape and financial burdens associate with securing airworthiness and operational approval for new light aircraft designs, and encourage the growth of new design concepts.

Details of the new process can be found on our website and on the Royal Aeronautical Society’s.
