Quick quiz: Pilot investment


The UK civil aviation authority revealed it paid out more than £2.65m (US$3.4m) in grants to general aviation pilots in 2018. What was the funding for?

The funding, provided by the EU, helped over 6,000 GA pilots and private aircraft owners change from their existing 25 kHz radios to 8.33 equivalents. All aircraft operated in the EU that are required to carry a radio had to be using equipment compatible with 8.33 kHz spacing by the end of 2018.
