One of the key strengths of the LAA's system is that we can monitor the fleet centrally and keep track of airworthiness incidents from around the world. Where necessary, we can then let our owners know, to help them keep flying safely.

Mogas containing up to 5% ethanol
LAA Engineering has started to approve aircraft with certain engines to use 'E5' mogas. Further information can be found on the E5 Mogas page (Aircraft & Technical - Operating & Maintaining Aircraft - E5 Mogas). The information includes general conditions and checks to be made, as well as downloadable placards. The placards may alternatively be requested from Engineering by sending in a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Placards for aircraft fitted with eligble engines will also be included with the Certificate of Validity at Permit revalidation.
