Farnborough - consultation on new class D airspace proposal
Farnborough have launched a consultation on their proposal for substantial Class D airspace. For insomniacs and/or those who can admire smoke 'n mirrors, their consultation document is available on the TAG Farnborough Airport website.
The potential effects of this upon all forms of GA are significant, needless to say the potential effects are not good ones ... unless you happen to being whisked to or from Farnborough in one of business jets that it now specialises in.
The BHPA is working with the GA Alliance on preparing a response that will object to the proposal in the strongest, but completely verifiable, terms. Because they probably stand to loose most the BGA are leading this work.
Lasham are holding an information meeting about the airspace change proposal for ALL aviators at 1pm on 23 March 2014. For full details including for those planning to fly in please visit the BGA website.
As they say, please pass this invitation on to all your air sport and GA flying friends.

As anymore information becomes available it will be posted on the BHPA website.
