IAA 600kg Opt-out Consultation - ILAS voices must be heard

27 Oct 2021 9:50 PM | ILAS Webmaster (Administrator)

ILAS has been working closely with the IAA for several years to encourage them to take advantage of the ability to 'opt out' of the basic regulation for factory built aircraft under 600kg MTOW and to bring such aircraft under national regulation only. Finally we appear to be on the verge of success.

Nine other EASA territories have already opted out and so has the UK.  Ireland is among four others who are leaning positively towards a similar decision

As one of the last steps towards the formal opt out, the IAA have launched a consultation on the issue and it is vital that ILAS members now make their voices heard in support of this initiative.
