CAA Representatives to be On Hand During RotorTech 2022
The UK Civil Aviation Authority General Aviation Unit (CAA GAU) will be attending this year’s RotorTech event, which coincides with it celebrating its 50th anniversary, “with a range of representatives on hand to answer all your GA questions and queries from airworthiness to operations and policy.”
“We will have team members from our Shared Service Centre on hand to provide assistance with General FCL enquiries and providing advice on completing EASA conversions, for example,” said a CAA representative.
“We will also have members of our Airspace team on hand to provide advice on how to prevent airspace infringements as well as guidance on airspace classification, and we hope to have representation from one of our aviation medicine specialists to talk about common in-flight medical issues that can affect general and sport aviation pilots.”
The full details of the RotorTech Seminar Programme will be released in May.
