Survey to measure real impact of Olympic airspace restrictions

AOPA has teamed up with other General Aviation groups to launch a survey which will collate information to help quantify the effect of the proposed restrictions on the use of airspace for the period of the Olympics.

This will help the Department for Transport and the CAA to gather more detailed information about the number of aircraft, airfields and businesses that will be affected by the proposed airspace restrictions announced on 7 March 2011.

A vast restricted area is to be imposed on VFR flights for two months covering the two weeks of the Olympic Games next year, stretching from south of Gatwick to north of Luton, west of Farnborough and east of Southend. At its core there is an area in which all VFR aviation will be prohibited for the full period (with the exception of police, medical and TV broadcast helicopters). You can read more about the Olympics Airspace Restrictions on the AOPA website.

The survey aims to assess the real financial impact on the GA community and associated businesses, whether they are airfield suppliers or related services such as a cafe.

To help collect this data, AOPA and other General Aviation groups are asking individual members to help by completing the survey.
