Important – BGA Letters re Airspace
This letter advises and urges us all to keep our noses clean with ATC when near airfields which may also be regional airports – especially by notifying them if we are above the ATZ or near the approach line, even when we are not in class D controlled airspace. Not directly related but we must be careful not to infringe controlled airspace to the west of Camphill used by traffic descending into Manchester.
This letter follows on from the above. As noted in the earlier letter this year, if we all follow good practice, we can maintain risk at a reasonable level, demonstrate that gliders do not pose the level of risk that some incorrectly assume, and have a much better case to oppose future airspace grabs.
