To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 10 February (HL Deb, col 2066), whether they are considering the rules around cost sharing as part of their review of the safety of general aviation.

The independent general aviation safety review, funded by the Department for Transport, is focused on non-commercial aviation, often referred to as recreational aviation. Cost sharing is considered in terms of setting out the rules and benefits of a properly conducted cost sharing flight which should support private pilots to ensure they do not inadvertently step beyond the rules. The review “UK Approach to Recreational General Aviation Safety: An Independent Review” will be published shortly as part of a wider consultation process on the review.
