Arnold, you are right. CAA asked Martin if AOPA could provide a portal for people to raise Red Tape issues, which we did here on the aopa website
. CAA promoted it.
As I understand it, Martin reviewed and collated each of the issues raised ( the online form collected a whole 11 genuine ones in total) and made these known to the CAA. What they did with them I don't know, but possibly have been incorporated into their thinking. These are the subject areas raised online :
The requirement to renew an MEP rating or an I/R that has lapsed by one day to be carried out at an ATO.
EASA permit renewal
EASA permit aircraft maintenance
CAA PPL licence application
CAA Publication Subscriptions - Document Notification Service
The Permit renewal for EASA Permit aircraft
EASA minor mod process
Annual permit process for EASA permitted aircraft
The JAR Med colour vision requirements.
Licensed aerodromes and the AIP and NOTAM system
Inner Area Airspace at London Heathrow CTR
How these have affected the CAA's Red Tape Challenge report or their approach to EASA I don't know.
If you sent emails rather than use the online form then I suggest that you follow up with whoever you sent them to.
