    Permit - fly

    Hi People.

    In a car, you can drive it without an MOT, to the MOT station for it's MOT.

    Is it the same with an out of permit aircraft? Can you fly it to have it's permit done?

    Legally you cannot drive a car without an mot, you can be prosecuted for it if Mr police officer decides he/she wants to take that route.

    An aircraft cannot be flown without a permit unless being flown on a check flight for the purpose of the renewal of a certificate of validity after a satisfactory permit inspection, either trailer it to the inspector or ask the inspector to drive across.

    I flew two different aircraft to where arrangements had been made for them to be check-flown but only after they had already been inspected and with explicit permission to do so.

    I vaguely remember a chap, a couple of years ago, flying a micro all around Kent, clearly on a jolly.
    If I recall, he was purporting to be delivering it somewhere for its check flight?
    So it can be done, you just need explicit permission from BMAA towers.
    Now, what was that fellows name . . .

    Can't help you there John, must have been after I'd moved to France. Lucky for him that he had explicit permission from BMAA towers, though

    Carl,

    You are legally entitled to drive a car or motorcycle to the mot test centre for the purposes of a prearranged test even if the tax and mot have expired. Insurance must be valid. It is important to ensure the mot test station records the registration number when you book the appointment, just in case you need to prove it.

    You can't legally drive the vehicle back home if it fails, though.

    Paul.

    Just as wellI can’t remember the bounder’s name.
    I seem to remember it caused a bit of a rumpus at the time?

    And there is nothing to stop you pre-arranging your MOT in Lands End, even if you live in John O'Groats as long as you could show you were taking a direct route between the 2 locations if required.

    The CAA will issue a National Permit to Fly for the sake of a "Positioning Flight". Bear in mind though....if your A/C fails it will be stuck there.

    So, in a nutshell, everything that is "usual" on this forum

    In answer to your question....

    No...

    Oh...

    Yes...


    I do like that smiley

    But 199.00 for the privilege... what a joke!

    Oh, and Carl... yes you can drive your car to the test station... see https://www.gov.uk/getting-an-mot/the-mot-test
