Wee Eck's produced a Big Document and - yes - that has quite a bit about aviation.

A nice Reaganite touch - lower taxes (APD) to bring in more business.

More airforce: a need identified for maritime patrol aircraft, which the UK apparently does not see as necessary

But no mention of University Air Squadrons, GA or a few other things like "Permits to Fly" and aircraft registration.

Most of the stuff handled by the UK CAA or EASA will continue to be handled by them, perhaps under contract.

Smaller things like will Scotland get an aircraft register like IoM and Channel Islands etc are no - I suspect - crucial in the "big picture" of a country's residents deciding on independence.

ps The Scottish government's paper is 700+ pages long and is a free download.
