GOOD NEWS on Pierre Rondel's website today

Recommended Posts

Hi all

After all the bad news coming from Europe these days - a pleasure to find some GOOD news for slope soarers  on Planet Soaring today......

Quote - "Breaking news !

Slope soaring sky is clearing with this newly adopted EU regulation by the European commission. The important sentence is:

5. Slope flying is to be expressly permitted throughout Europe as part of the "Open Category", ie even without the special operating permit of an association.

Many thanks to all people all over Europe, associations, federations, lobbyists who participated to make this first step to happen.

Pierre Rondel" - end of quote

Hopefully that might just cheer up a few of us:thumbsup::yes:

Regards

Pete

You’re going to have to wait another two weeks for any vote, and then it won’t make much difference.

Not expecting anything to happen but if we do end up no Deal exit - I'm travelling to Spain two weeks later.

IDP's and Green cards

Ehics and Passport 

Although luckily I'm not travelling down through Europe this year - having to stop at every border and wake up the customs guy - I remember that being a right pain. Especially if they wish to check the vehicle.. Packing for these trips is tricky at the best of times. 

 

What a faff -- 

Whats the entry procedure for Scotland - might just end up there..

That sentence appears to come from DMFV's report on yesterday's EASA committee meeting. It probably means that when the regulation is published the 400ft height limit will be measured from the launch point and will not be height above ground as it is in October's draft. DMFV are also reporting that the age restrictions have been relaxed.

Hi Skip

But we ARE in the EU! and judging by the political poker being played with our money over the last couple of months /years we'll be "in it" (literally) for a l-o-o-n-g time to come

Anyone see "Question Time" last night? I've seen pub fights quieter........:(:yes:........according to the political pundit Mark MyWords we're NEVER getting out.....

Regards
