UK – Duxford Event To Launch Government GA Strategy
January 22, 2015
The next stage of the Government’s plans for General Aviation (GA) will be unveiled on Saturday 28th March 2015 when the Government’s strategy for GA is made public at a joint Government / Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) event at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, Cambridgeshire.
The Duxford event and unveiling of the Government’s strategy is the latest stage of a programme to fulfil the Government’s aim of making the UK the best country in the world for GA and boosting jobs and growth in the sector.
Key players in the GA world will be speaking including Grant Shapps MP, Minister Without Portfolio; Patrick Ky, EASA Executive Director and; Andrew Haines, CAA Chief Executive.
Specialists from NATS will also be in attendance on the day offering advice on a range of GA airspace safety issues and air traffic control in general.
The event is open to anyone involved in GA and will provide an opportunity to hear an update on the Future Airspace Strategy VFR operations deployment plan and the latest work underway through the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and UK GA programmes.
It also follows a year of considerable progress by the CAA to ensure GA enjoys a safety regulation system that imposes the minimum necessary burden and empowers individuals to make responsible decisions to secure acceptable safety outcomes. The CAA’s latest work with GA can be seen atwww.caa.co.uk/ga.
The event will take place from 10.30am to 3pm. If you wish to attend then please RSVP to GAevent@caa.co.uk including the number of people in your party and if you intend to fly in. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Confirmation of successful registration and further information on the event will be provided nearer the date.
Those registered to attend will also have free access to the Imperial War Museum during the day and reduced landing fees are available for those flying in.
