At UK-Wheelchairs we have shown in interest in the ongoing issues regarding regulation of electric mobility transport and particularly electric wheelchairs and we were very please to see active involvement by the CAA.
The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched an industry-wide campaign to highlight the safety requirements and obligations for the preparation and loading of electric mobility aids, including wheelchairs and scooters, on-board passenger aircraft. The initiative follows several safety incidents over recent years involving electric mobility aids.
As part of its campaign the CAA has produced a training video that runs through each step of the process – from booking the flight, to checking-in, to loading an electric mobility aid into the aircraft hold. The video, One Team, One Goal can be seen below.[embed]https://youtu.be/IFyEVckQEjc[/embed]
