CAA Charges

At this unprecedented time due to the Covid 19 crisis the UK CAA are sending out invoices demanding immediate payment
This is contrary to the Government Covid 19 policy and is not in line with the approach from other European Authorities.
Can the industry come together unilaterally to challenge this situation .

So they've run out of cash? I have never agreed with the idea that the CAA should be profit-making. Yes, it should be run in a businesslike manner in terms of not wasting money, but it has the same status as a public toilet (sorry for the analogy) - it's there because you want or need it and should be buoyed up by the government anyway.

Breaking news for Topcat01: UK isn't part of UE, and UK CAA will leave EASA at the end of this year.
After that date you'll have to pay in advance for their services.

Thank you for stating the facts that we are all aware of
The purpose of the post was to try and find a way of helping the UK helicopter industry as currently our European Authorities are

That's good. It will be worth it to be unshackled from an unelected, unaccountable, undemocratic, corrupt, bureaucratic, autocratic, kleptocratic, protectionist, greedy, dictatorial foreign power and make our own rules...

Spot on paco!

Many are forgetting that at the beginning there wasn't too much differences between the two.
Will UK CAA became the same
unelected, unaccountable, undemocratic, corrupt, bureaucratic, autocratic, kleptocratic, protectionist, greedy, dictatorial
agency here mentioned?
The time will answer to chopjock.

CAA

CAA should stick to enforcement and someone else should be brought in to write the rules

Right on!!!!!!!! The common market was always a good idea, a United States of Europe was never going to work.

Why are the CAA not issuing an extension as they have done for everything else to November?
