reaffirming our commitment not to gold-plate European aviation regulations, and to act quickly and efficiently to remove gold-plating that already exists.
Andrew and Martin’s letter invited the GA community to identify where they perceived gold-plating had taken place through additional regulation or through the information and guidance published, detailing how we may have gold-plated and how the issue could be rectified.
All the responses have been assessed by the CAA and AOPA and any possible solutions discussed. This document outlines areas we are working on.
AOPA was happy to assist the CAA in this project. If members have examples of gold plating in the future then please let Martin know.
