Instructors and resuming flying

Postby Dave Thomas » Fri Feb 12, 2021 1:09 pm

Having just come from speaking to BHPA.

The CAA and BHPA have announced that instructors will now be allowed to carry out flying for their personal training and currency purposes. There is a concern at present whether this extends to Trainee Instructors and as of today is with BHPA Chair Marc Asquith to resolve with the CAA.

The LMSC committee have discussed options for resumption of Instructor flying on our sites and have a variety of opinions on the matter, as we are aware that there are very many pilots who are in far more need of a top-up of their flying currency and will be rightly upset that they can't also do so. It's not looking very flyable at present, but the committee will have completed their discussions with landowners and tenants and voted in time for some decent weather.

The BHPA are acutely aware that resuming flying will be a risky endeavour for many and are putting together proposals for Instructors and Clubs to aide in that process of regaining currency. Further details to follow.

The BHPA have just verbally confirmed to me that Trainee Instructors are now allowed to continue to fly. Please don't feel to jealous, hopefully we can all start soon too.

The BHPA are due to email all clubs and schools later today to confirm.
