A Tax On Aeromodellers? Please Respond!
Rally 2015

We’ve got just until the end of this week, June 7th, to formally respond to the CAA consultation CAP1775, which has raised the spectre of an annual registration fee of £16.50 of all operators of all unmanned aircraft between 250gm and 20 kg - which includes the vast majority of model aircraft flyers, many of whom are fellow members.


Even after June 7th, each of us can make a contribution by bending the ears of our local MPs, who are most definitely in listening mode as they count every vote as precious.  A copy of my article in the latest Light Aviation magazine can be found here - maybe you can send it you your MP? - and the CAA response document can be found here.
