UK-EU Transition

References to EU regulation or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate description of your obligations or rights under UK law.

Much of our work to make our regulation of recreational GA more proportionate is being undertaken through the GA change programme that ensures we stick to our top level principles for better GA regulation. These are:

  • Only regulate directly when necessary and do so proportionately
  • Deregulate where we can
  • Delegate where appropriate
  • Do not gold-plate, and quickly and efficiently remove gold-plating that already exists
  • Help create a vibrant and dynamic GA sector in the UK

Since the GA change programme was initiated in 2015, over 60 projects have been completed covering a wide range of topics:

  • National
  • EU and International
  • Airspace
  • Governance and Finance

Keep up with our quarterly updates on our progress with the change programme.
