IAOPA Newsletter

This month's IAOPA newsletter carried a short item claiming that EASA were minded to regulate microlights. It turns out that somewhere, someone got the wrong end of the stick. The facts are explained here in a post by David Roberts.

Mistakes happen, but there have been a few too many factual errors in IAOPA's newsletter of late. I don't know if there's an editorial edict to scare people in the hope that they'll join, or someone who just doesn't understand some things (discussions concerning the UK's IMCR often introduce errors) but I fear that the monthly newsletter is doing more harm than good right now.
