IMHO, I don't think you should get distracted into a debate about the definition of 'curtilage'. As Espada III suggests, that's a whole murky area of planning law that almost no-one has enough time...

I'm sure there are many who will disagree but it seems to me that a single EC solution should be mandatory for all GA aircraft - to help to avoid exactly this sort of accident.
