In the case cited the vehicle wasn't "recreational"; it was a piece of mobility kit for a man with a spinal injury/deformation.

But again, the man took the trouble to call well in advance and check. He has every right to feel aggrieved.

I really think some of the pilots on here need to reign-in the egos a bit.
