GA pilots invited to UK airspace conference

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is encouraging general aviation pilots to attend a major conference in Central London to discuss the future of UK airspace.

The event, organised by the CAA, is taking place at the headquarters of the Royal Aeronautical Society on 15 July 2013. It follows a similar event held at the end of 2012 for the commercial aviation sector.

The CAA said it was keen to maintain a constructive dialogue with all airspace users as it begins implementing elements of its Future Airspace Strategy, a major project to ensure the UK copes with increasing airspace demand and technological changes over the coming decade.

The conference will hear from a range of speakers including, Andrew Haines the CAA Chief Executive and Martin Robinson, the Chief Executive of AOPA. The event will also include discussion sessions with audience participation strongly encouraged.

The event will take place between 12:00–18:00 on Monday 15 July at the Royal Aeronautical Society, 4 Hamilton Place, London W1J 7BQ.
