This is all about the safety of the airspace for full size aeroplanes.
If all commercial flights (100,000 + per day as per 2014 CAA figures) paid 10 pence per flight, then that would well cover the CAA cost of 2.8+ million per annum for the registration system.
Sadly we all know it won't make any difference to the rogues who want to disrupt commercial flights and airports.
But the CAA are basing their figures on 170,000 people registering. The BMFA have 34,000 and all other air space users are about 20,000, there is a huge shortfall to reach 170,000 & £2.8m. So the registration fee won't be £16.50 more like rapidly rising to £70/80 pa.
Now is it worth writing to all and sundry and filling in the survey?
