That sounds like good news indeed, for the UK flying community at least. Still, excuse me for having some reserve: the Skyranger is not manufactured by Flylight, they are merely the importers. So...

And where is that aeroclub, and that C42? If in Germany, yes of course, rules must be adhered to, and they are forbidden to be simple and straightforward. Otherwise, the mileage may vary, and there...

'Left downwind' is (slightly) incorrect anyway.
'Downwind' with no further specification implicitly includes the default 'left'
