Link for convenience...

Well done to those at the BMFA for their hard work. Let's hope that this is the beginning of a decent solution.

Gosh, a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel! Fingers crossed that it continues this way.

Excellent news!

Well done all those who have worked so hard for this, both within the BMFA, and those who have pestered the DfT, CAA and their MPs.

I wonder how many emails/letters they have all had?

A rough count shows that I have sent well in excess of 50 emails spread across the CAA, Richard Moriarty, the drones team, the various complaints teams, my MP, the DfT, Grant Shapps, Chris Grayling and the anti-aviation minister. Not to mention all the online complaints forms.

If all BMFA members have done similar, then they must have been absolutely inundated!

We all must not give up until things are set in stone though!

I always thought that the pseudonym of Failing Grayling was unfair. I'm not so sure now! Well done to Grant Shapps for taking this up and directing the DfT to be helpful towards the model flying world. Let's hope they do as they are told and don't have a Sir Humphrey to frustrate the S of S's direction.

Oh, Grayling's reputation was well earned! From privatising the probation service (many of the "suppliers" have now gone bust!), Brexit Ferries (giving a shipping contract to a company with neither ships nor experience), the list is endless! In each case, his successor has had to sort out the mess he left behind!

When I learned who the new SofS for Transport was, I was hopeful, as he has shown himself to be a friend of model flying in the past.

I just hope the progress being made is not disrupted by all the other current political shenanigans!

Maybe, just maybe, someone in government has actually taken a look at the absurd and disproportionate regulations that are currently lined up for model flyers and thought "oops"!

I don't expect a total climb-down, but we'll wait and see. Obvously, there is concern about drones within government (off the shelf multi rotors that are being flown illegally under existing regs and are spoiling things for the majority of responsible MR pilots) and perhaps our inclusion is finally being viewed as the innocent collateral damage that it is.
