Oxford and Brize Norton proposed airspace changes

Twenty-one gliding clubs, other air sport clubs, and GA Alliance member organisations met last week to agree a strategy for responding to the recent airspace change consultations published by Osprey Consulting on behalf of RAF Brize Norton and Oxford airport. Steve Noujaim, a BGA club pilot and LAA pilot with military and commercial flying experience is leading a group who will be developing the response. The (revised) closing date for responses is 5th April 2018. During late March 2018, the response group will provide GA pilots with information to help them form and submit their own responses.

A New Look Website

We’ve redesigned our website to give it a more contempory look and to make updating easier.

We plan to post news items on this page to keep people up to date as so far as we can; understandably, we can’t report everything we’re doing!

Thanks very much to John Wright (sky-web.net) for all his hard work to create the new site. John delivered on time and exactly to budget.
