APPG-GA’S aims for 2019

Pilot - - NOTES -

The All-par­lia­men­tary Group for Gen­eral Avi­a­tion (APPG-GA) has set out a pro­gramme for each of its five Work­ing Groups, out­lin­ing pol­icy ambitions for the year ahead and how it in­tends to achieve them.

“We feel it is im­por­tant that our work is as open and trans­par­ent as pos­si­ble. That is why we are pub­lish­ing a pro­gramme of work for each sub-group, so the pub­lic and the Gov­ern­ment are crys­tal clear on what we want achieved for Gen­eral Avi­a­tion,” says Grant Shapps, MP, Chair of the APPG-GA,

Work Pro­gramme aims in­clude im­por­tant is­sues such as cam­paign­ing for im­proved safe­guard­ing of air­fields, work­ing to­wards greater tax re­lief on flight train­ing, im­prov­ing the fair­ness of lower airspace man­age­ment, open­ing clearer path­ways through ed­u­ca­tion to avi­a­tion jobs, and lob­by­ing for re­align­ment of the pol­icy on mil­i­tary dis­pos­als to sup­port mu­se­ums and her­itage or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The APPG-GA also has plans to launch a new Work­ing Group to sup­port the UK’S man­u­fac­tur­ing and en­gi­neer­ing sec­tor, fo­cus­ing on pro­mot­ing more flex­i­ble reg­u­la­tions for new tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ments.
