Lasham Gliding Society files for Judicial Review of Farnborough airspace ruling
‘The Airspace Team and our lawyers have completed a herculean task in compiling 183 pages of statements, plus supporting documents, which have been filed with the Court,’ says Chairman Mike Clarke in a letter to members.
‘The CAA now has 21 days from the date of service of proceedings to acknowledge service.’
“This action represents a momentous step in challenging the CAA’s controversial decision to grant controlled airspace, not to protect the general public travelling by commercial air transport, but essentially ‘fence off’ a huge area of the sky for private operations in the business jet sector of general aviation,” comments Pilot Editor Philip Whiteman.
