Are you talking about people flying illegally because they can't be bothered or don't want to get involved with regulation, or are you suggesting that any private pilot who flies their own aircraft without the oversight of a flying school is out-of-control and something needs to be done about them?
I was picking up on something someone else wrote.
Just that if we are concerned about someone’s airmanship, and safety, maybe we should, without malice, help that pilot into a better decision.
We should not rely on the instructors to ensure a person is safe and has good airmanship traits, because an hour might not be enough to demonstrate every situation.
Most private pilots want to fly safely.
Regardless of licence situation, whether the pilot rents from a school or club with check outs being the norm, or if the pilot flies from a lonely strip somewhere, we should try to educate each other to stay safe.
It’s better if a pilot without a valid licence is found out through other means than by accident.
I think about the day myself and a passenger pushed the Jungmann back after an engine failure. The crowd in front of the hangar laughed, no one lifting a finger to help.
Let’s not be like them.
The next week, an aeroplane from that hangar crashed on the runway, and I was first on the scene to help.
Best bet to reduce CAA involvement is to offer to help people to not have an incident. Make it easy and welcome for them to ask.
