My thanks to John for bringing to my attention to the proposed European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The regulations could affect the future of model flying in Europe which will include the Isle of Man, if it goes ahead without change. Hopefully, the BMFA and the proposed European Model Flying Union can get it amended.
