GAAC reports a number of issues in its latest newsletter. Amongst these are the results of the '28 day rule' planning consultation and
efforts of the 'Fly Finningley' campaign to promote the development of a commercial
airport at the former RAF base near Doncaster.
As far as the latter is concerned it is noted that whilst the results of a public
inquiry is still awaited, the Fly Finningley campaign is still actively seeking support
(see www.fly-doncaster.com for details).
The GAAC comments...
"The developers of Finningley will not consider the needs of GA unless you draw
their attention to them. A new major area of controlled airspace for this location
would be far more limiting than the MATZ that applied at RAF Finningley until its closure."
The GAAC also alerts us to latest development
relating to the Government's work on 'The Future Development of Air Transport in the
United Kingdom' which is also the subject of the latest A4A alert.
