MAA Audits and Approvals of the DE&S Training Aircraft Project Team up to 2018 with Regards to ATC Gliders

The request was refused by Ministry of Defence.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and am conducting private research into the circumstances surrounding the grounding of the Air Cadet Organisation's glider fleet from April 2014, and the subsequent recovery.

I am interested in the content of the Military Aviation Authority's audits of the MoD's DE&S Training Aircraft Project Team, and also the responsible PT's Type Certification and their statements related to the ATC gliders' Type Airworthiness

I therefore request that you supply me with the following documents:

1. The reports from MAA audits carried out on the DE&S PT responsible for the ATC gliders carried out from formation of the MAA until end 2018. This would have included the MAA's initial audit of the PT.

2. Copies of formal approvals issued by the MAA for the DE&S PT to act as TAA for the ATC gliders

3. The Type Certification documents for the Viking T1 and Vigilant T1 gliders issued between 2010 and end 2018, and documents relating to their approval by the MAA.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen George
