Perhaps you are referring to paragraph 10 of his piece where he quotes the Commission's words?
Regardless of whether those were the Commission's words or his, in this ( Brexit: leading in the amateur stakes ) piece he doesn't appear to be quoting anyone when he states: "EASA membership is limited to EU countries". Yet this is the very same piece where he links to the EASA membership page to deduce "that Turkey is not a member" - obviously his fact checking was a little selective as it is equally easy to deduce from the same source that Switzerland is a member. I have noticed a number of contradictions in Dr. North's posts, maybe it's accidental, he does write a lot, but it's sloppy, it makes me distrust his statements of fact. Many of his opinions on the Brexit process and the politicians on the other hand are spot on - well, in the sense that they agree with mine
