The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has issued guidance to raise awareness around the risks of illegal public transport using unlicensed aircraft for commercial purposes - the use of such aircraft is a risk to the safety of passengers carried.
The CAA has updated it guidance material and reminds the users of aircraft being charted commercially that the operator is required to hold an Air Operators Certificate. This means that they are properly regulated and operate to internationally recognised safety standards.
If an aircraft is operated on a commercial basis outside of these regulations, then it is likely that the flight will be illegal and that any insurance could be invalidated.
Players are encouraged to pass this information to their representatives, who to any other party who may be responsible for booking transport on their behalf.
