CAA Relaxes Rules of Flight Testing Experimental Aircraft (Pilot Web)

The CAA has introduced simpler requirements, known as E Conditions, for approving the initial flight testing of small experimental aircraft. The new requirements allow aircraft designers to try out a new concept aircraft up to a maximum take-off weight of 2,000kg in the air without going through the costly and time-consuming procedures that currently exist to get a new design past the initial prototype stage. E Conditions can also be used to test modifications.  While there are still limitations this change should open up new possibilities for designers of aircraft.
