Gatwick Airspace Debate: Imp Info ! (Posted 28/10/2014)

A document Gatcom sent to Gal two years ago made the point that if P-RNAV caused problems, then NPRís should be brought back. Attendees at the recent Gatcom meeting were told that there was no need for Gatwick to have gone P-RNAV at this time, however they wanted to be in the vanguard (to our detriment) Both documents make specific reference as to what should happen if the implementation of P-RNAV causes problems which it has). The main document advises that Gatwick should be informed of problems, so that a case can be raised to revert back to NPRís. Please write to Gatwick, citing these documents . If we donít respond, then we will have to live with what we have, which is not acceptable .Document 1 Document 2

It is also imperative to write to the CAA to voice your concerns, as contained with the consultation document  from last year concerning The Airspace Consultation was a ďone linerĒ which said that the CAA were obliged to reassess the results of the changes a year on from implementation. That is any time now. If you don't complain you won't be counted ! Contact details
