APPG-GA’S aims for 2019
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.
