Each year your aircraft must be inspected and check flown to revalidate its Permit to Fly.
If your Certificate of Validity (C of V) is still valid, the inspection and check flight can be performed up to 60 days prior to its expiry with no loss of duration.
The maximum time between inspection and check flight is also 60 days. The check flight can be flown before the inspection as long as the C of V is still valid. Otherwise, it must be flown after the inspection.

Inspections can only be carried out by a BMAA appropriately authorised inspector. We of course are registered with the BMAA.
Check flights can be carried out by any suitably licenced pilot. The BMAA check flying system is described in the BMAA Check Flying Handbook TIL 042.
At the time of application your aircraft must have a valid weight report.
When you apply for revalidation of your aircraft’s Permit to Fly you will need to submit an application form and an inspection and check flight record. We can, of course, help you with all aspects of this - give us a call on 07973 859756
