Updated monthly, Aviation Regulations Updates keeps you up-to-date with recent and proposed changes to EU Regulations and EASA Agency Measures relating to air operations and airworthiness. In addition, we also review and highlight information published by the UK CAA where relevant.

25/08/2016   New UK Air Navigation Order (ANO) 2016

Following a significant level of consultation and review, the Air Navigation Order 2016 is revised to help simplify the General Aviation (GA) regulatory framework. The UK CAA informs us that it formalises many of the changes that have already been made and will help make the rules easier to understand. The CAA also states that it provides the foundation for a simpler and more proportionate approach to the regulation of many GA activities that fall under national (and not European) regulation. The structure has been substantially changed to help pilots (and others involved in the operation of non-EASA aircraft) find the information that they need more easily. Full details can be found here.

We advise all parties to fully familiarise themselves with the revised document.
