Publication of Regulatory Notice (RN) regarding display flying
Regulatory Notice MAA/RN/2015/09(D MAA) regarding display flying has been published.
Clarification of responsibilities of flying display directors, airshow organizers, heads of establishment, aviation duty holders and accountable managers (military flying) has been published.
- Following the tragic accident at Shoreham airshow on 22 Aug 15, the CAA announced a series of immediate restrictions and changes to UK civil air displays. This has been followed up by the issue of a Safety Notice1 . There is no change to military regulations at this time, but the MAA wishes to draw the attention of Airshow Organizers2 and display participants to those aspects of Regulatory Article (RA) 2335 – Flying Displays and Special Events that are pertinent to protecting the general public.
- This Regulatory Notice (RN) applies to all Flying Display Directors (FDD), Airshow Organizers, Heads of Establishment (HoE), Aviation Duty Holders (ADH) and Accountable Managers (Military Flying) (AM(MF)) who have UK military or foreign military aircraft participating at their own or others’ events.
- The aim of this RN is to stress the responsibilities placed on FDDs, Airshow Organizers, HoEs, ADHs and AM(MF)s with regard to protecting those members of the general public3 who are not within the designated spectator areas.
