RENTING AN AIRFIELD

Can any wise person comment please, if a group rent an airfield from a landowner, if there was an accident and a claim followed should the group who rent the airfield be insured or will the ultimate liability rest with the landowner and his insurance.

Re: LAA Permit 2018 8.33 Radio

The 8.33 situation is a farce which ever way you look at it and the only people making any gain are the radio manufacturers by having the CAA forcing aircraft owners to buy new totally unnecessary new radios. Yet again GA is suffering another nail in its already large coffin. GA is decreasing its no...

Re: Illegal use of a 25 kz Radio

The 8.33 legislation is going to be a far bigger nail in the coffin of an already struggling GA then anybody realises. How can it be good for the fine hobby of amateur aviation to be saddled with this 8.33 farce it serves no purpose whatsoever and is no benefit to general aviation, it is only a drai...

Re: Illegal use of a 25 kz Radio

It is sad to see all these
suppliers making headline advertising stating the looming deadline to be ripped off with a new 8.33 radio. All the aviation magazines are running these alarming adverts.

Re: LAA Permit 2018 8.33 Radio

Oh sorry I forgot to mention, if you throw your nice Bendix King valued at 2,500 pounds in the bin then spend another 2,500 pounds on a new radio the nice man will give you 20% back, Oh that's if you get spending quick before the nice man has given away his allowance and his little piggy bank maybe ...

Illegal use of a 25 kz Radio

So after this looming deadline its illegal to have a 25 kz radio on board your aircraft that works. This in effect will de value my aircraft by £2,000 pounds as I have a perfectly good Bendix King which now will be consigned to the dustbin. I continue to be surprised that we all go like good citizen...

LAA Permit 2018 8.33 Radio

Will an LAA Permit be granted with an aircraft which does not have a 8.33 compliant radio fitted, and if a non compliant old 25 Kgs remains fixed in the aircraft that will need to be disconnected for the purpose of passing the new permit. One may presume carrying a hand held 8.33 is compliant for a ...
