EASA Transiton Delayed

If you have been reading my previous posts about the upcoming EASA Transiton, there is good news.

The Transion has been delayed until 2018.

We will operate under the old BGA system until at least April 2018. In particual for students this means:

  • You only need a cheap GP Medical, not an expensive LAPL Medical
  • You can work towards Bronze and Cross Country Endorsements and they will be valid until April 2018

 

I expect that the BGA will gradually change the Bronze and Cross Country Endorsement into something that will resemble the LAPL(S) over the next few years, at the moment we have few details.
