We were fortunate to have Irv Lee, one of the CAA’s accredited experts, to brief us on the routines to be followed with regard to the Restricted and Prohibited Airspace associated with the 2012 London Olympics. Irv’s message was very positive – “Keep on flying but respect the rules.”
Did you know for example that within 10 miles of Old Sarum the base of restricted space goes down to 2000 feet? If you don’t then it’s a shame you didn’t turn up to the meeting and you’d better start going through the mountain of paper work associated with the event.
Thanks also to Simon Davison of the Solent ATSU for attending and giving a local slant to the proceedings.
