General Aviation ‘leisure’ Flying

As you may be aware, there has been no General Aviation ‘leisure’ Flying since many areas went into Tier 4 in November, and for everywhere else since full Lockdown again in December.

I know many people like me are feeling grounded, so I thought I would remind all our small aircraft owners that usually incur a P11d charge, that this very grounding of our planes means that they can claim this time as ‘not legally allowed to fly’.

I am not sure if the Department of Transport were aware of the implications of this, but as their own current lockdown guidance states  ‘No leisure flying is permitted’ 

when calculating the personal use against business use of your aircraft please remember to discount all of the time within this tax year when we could not fly, against your P11d tax returns.

If you need any help with calculating the P11d return or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Lastly, what do you think of my little sketch of my favourite Cessna 152? It is just waiting at Blackbushe Airport for when we can go up there again.
