This document contains the interim report to ministers, on the regulation of the general aviation sector, which has been produced by the independent General Aviation (GA) Challenge Panel.

The GA Challenge Panel was established by ministers in November 2013. This followed the government’s General Aviation Red Tape Challenge (RTC) earlier in 2013 and is part of the government’s objective to reform the way general aviation is regulated in the UK. The panel is wholly independent of government and has been tasked by ministers to deliver 2 reports: an interim report by the end of January 2014 followed by a final report at the end of April.

This interim report provides initial findings by the panel and a number of recommendations to the government for changes to improve the regulation of GA.
