Grant Aid for 8.33kHz Radio Equipage

The CAA previously announced that EU funding has been secured to assist GA aircraft owners with the equipage of 8.33kHz radios – see here for details.  The CAA has now advised us that claims will be accepted covering equipage from 16th February 2016 through to 31st December 2017. As the total funding granted is fixed, the CAA is urging people to go ahead with equipage sooner rather than wait.  Whilst the exact criteria are still to be defined, we know that all claims will need to be backed up with dated receipts and serial number of the radio system. So hang onto the paperwork. As soon as we know more, we’ll advise through the normal channels.
