Whoo-hoo! The UK government has confirmed that all restrictions imposed by the Covid lockdown have now been lifted in England.
“General Aviation (GA) flying can take place without restrictions,” said a statement. “For example, flight training for all pilots, and flights with an instructor, can take place without limits.”
It also means events can go ahead, such as fly-ins, with no limits on numbers. However, the govt also said, “Moving to Stage 4 does not mean that coronavirus (COVID-19) has disappeared. As such, GA users should follow the government’s recommendations on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“When travelling within the UK, you should aim to do so safely and plan your journey in advance. When travelling internationally, you must adhere to the government rules on international travel, taking into account restrictions on travel to countries and territories on the red and amber lists.”
