The CAA has opened a new, fourth fund­ing pe­riod to as­sist GA pi­lots who still need to buy an 8.33 khz ra­dio for their air­craft. It will be ac­cept­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions un­til 30 Septem­ber, and all grants will be is­sued on a case-by­case ba­sis. The CAA ap­plied to the Euro­pean Union for €4.3m fund­ing to en­cour­age the timely tran­si­tion of the UK GA fleet from ex­ist­ing 25 khz ra­dios to 8.33 khz equip­ment.
