I’m remaining vague on purpose and will have to continue being so for some time to come as I want to stay under-the-radar and not attract unnecessary attention. But things are already on the move towards turning my little plan into reality.
Early yesterday evening I received the information by email that I’d requested from the UK plus copies of various items of paperwork and by bedtime the necessary forms had been sent off to the UK CAA by the same means. And by the middle of this afternoon the aircraft in question had been deregistered in the UK and the necessary paperwork submitted here in France for it to be added to the French aircraft register.
I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed by how quickly and smoothly the process went and I’m very encouraged that if things continue in this way, everything will be achieved even more rapidly than I originally thought. All will be revealed in the fullness of time and in the meantime I’ll continue quietly working away behind the scenes 😉
