GAAC Airfield Fighting Fund
In a letter published in the December issue of Pilot magazine, Peter Kember, a director of the General Aviation Awareness Council, advises of two recent cases, including the one at Hanley William, the other the former RAF Manby in Lincolnshire, which after public inquiries, have been denied planning permission largely on noise grounds. The case for Manby has excellent chances in appeal, but this will not happen due to lack of funds. Peter asks that an annual contribution of just 2 from every pilot would enable a trust fund that "...would ensure the aviation community is given the opportunity to safeguard existing airfields and to promote new ones in appropriate locations". Contact the GAAC for a standing order or direct debit form on 0207 834 5631 or at info@gaac.co.uk.

Over the 5 years to June 2000 the GAAC has made 298 representations to local authorities in some 250 different cases, a tremendous effort not universally recognised in the aviation community and deserving of everyone's support. View the GAAC web site.
