The DfT has now updated its guidance to flyers effectively enabling solo flying and flying with members of one’s household from airfields in England.


Please note that different COVID movement regulations apply in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


Before resuming flying, we recommend that you take a look at useful guidance from the CAA, search for CAP 1919, and from the LAA on inspection and maintenance, set out in Technical Leaflet TL 2.32, available via our website and We also recommend that any pilots thinking of returning to flying take a look at some excellent GASCo guidance on ‘rust removal’, available at
