    MORE AIRSPACE LOST ?

    Chaps,

    Your attention to this matter is urgently required. TAG Aviation at Farnborough are proposing to grab large swathes of additional controlled airspace on the spurious non evidential grounds of forecast increases in traffic density.

    At the moment each business jet flight from/to Farnborough has an average of 2.5 passengers per flight. The proposed extension will jeopardise operations from Lasham, Fairoaks and Blackbushe. All of us who transit the area will be affected should these proposals become law.

    The following site gives chapter and verse on exactly how much and where additional airspace is threatened by TAG. It also directs you to the route and the style of registering objections. We need as many as possible to respond. We in GA are being squeezed into an ever diminishing amount of airspace. Please go to:

    A "similar" situation at Southend I believe (although I stand to be corrected). With a lot more commercial flights,
    they have had incursions into their airspace by light aircraft.
    Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

      That makes little sense.

      If with a small amount of controlled airspace they have incursions, with a larger amount of airspace they will inevitably have more.

      I have some small sympathy for Southend, despite the fact it will inconvenience me, they do at least have scheduled commercial movements.

      Farnborough doesn't. It's all about the lucrative biz-jet market.
