Future of UK Airfields
24 October 2017
No.4 Hamilton Place, London
The Royal Aeronautical Society wants to help bring the sector together to help provide some answers to these questions posed by Ministers in the draft Strategy, as well inputting into the work of the new All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on GA, recently set up to promote the GA sector in Parliament. We are very fortunate in that the chair of the APPG on GA and keen pilot, Rt. Hon. Grant Shapps MP, has already agreed to speak at our conference. The conference is expected to cover some of the following issues affecting the future of UK airfields and hopefully provide some practical solutions, including: planning policy and legislation, regulation, the role of local authorities, taxation and finance, access to airspace.
