The BHPA instruction is still NO FLYING. But now there is one exception and that is for instructors who are permitted to fly to stay current so they can do their jobs. Which seems reasonable. They must still follow all guidelines for staying local and maintaining social distancing. So you may see the occasional flight on Wessex sites, but sadly you can’t join them unless you have a current BHPA Instructor licence.
