Consultation on overly burdensome regulation on the UK aviation sector.
This consultation is being held on another website
As part of its strategy to promote economic growth, the government has committed to be the first to cut the overall volume of rules and regulations on the statute book. To help, it set up the Red Tape Challenge to provide a forum for the public to post comments about regulations that could be scrapped.
The General Aviation Red Tape Challenge is one theme which has raised many areas where regulation is overly burdensome on businesses across the UK aviation sector which covers everything from global commercial airlines to small independent flight schools.
