    It's been a battle but I've passed my radio licence today and Fenland.
    Many thanks to Steve, Lisa and Humphry.
    Now the next hurdle, trying to find how much the caa fee is.
    Can anyone help.
    Thanks in advance.
    John.

    You may find this unbelievable, but assuming you already have a microlight NPPL, the CAA fee is...








    ...zero!

    You've already paid when you applied for your NPPL.
    GA applicants have to take the radio exam first so the fee structure is based around that. Hence NPPL (micro) can add the radio licence for no additional cost.
    Really. But you don't have to believe me. Ring the BMAA and check. It's the sort of thing your membership fee pays for...

    It's free on a GA licence as long as you apply for it at the same time as the licence, they only charge to add one on.

    I'd assumed since you can't (as far as I could tell) apply for a FRTOL at the same time as your microlight licence it'd be chargeable at whatever silly price the CAA want, very pleased to hear that's not the case as I'll be doing mine some time in the new year
