General aviation flying has now restarted in England (but not in other parts of the UK) so if things are ‘go’ for me as from 1st June here in France, it looks as though I’ll soon be able to start making plans to return to the UK and pick up 24ZN, my ex-pat Xair.

The only possible fly in the ointment might be this weird ‘shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted’ UK government plan to force visitors coming into the country to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival at pain of a £1000 fine. It’s already beginning to crumble with suggestions that ‘business’ visitors and delivery drivers will have to be excluded as otherwise the country will be paralysed more than it is already, so I’ll have to wait and see what will happen.

I’ve had my route sorted out since the last time I went off towards the end of last year in the hope of bringing the Xair over and I’ve already got my current UK chart in the Asus tablet I use for my navigation. So who knows, things might now begin to happen sooner rather than later. And about time too, I say…
