I was fairly upset to read about the Farnborough airspace being ‘largely approved’. The reasons given are just outright false, that’s what is so annoying. The safety case really hasn’t been made and it’s Oxford next. Personally, I am happy to do radio calls through Class D, but I see the start of a slippery slope with this (ridiculous) system ( aup.nats.aero). Again, the reasons given for the system are absurd.
I would be willing to contribute to the legal costs of objecting to the CAA, but I simply don’t know where to start. I don’t even know if the CAA is above the law when it comes to airspace. If anyone is aware of a barrister who is knowledgeable in this field, please let me know via Pilot magazine. Patrick Wills, by email
