I've come to the conclusion that I feel I may have suspected all along about the CAA. They're a bunch of scaremongering, kill joy, poorly informed nimbies. This magazine though glossy and well written sums up thier attitude to GA rather well. We're a pain in the backside for them. Lets face it, they would rather over regulate us and outprice us out of existance than do anything to help our cause (mode s etc..).
I'm not talking about the individuals that work for the CAA. I would hand on heart say I haven't met a nasty one amongst them. However as a body they seem to have an agenda to scare and stop as much as possible when it comes to GA, while bending over backwards at every whim, request and requirement of the Big Airlines in this country. Makes me sick when I see how easily the airlines in this country get rules changed to suit thier operation.
