    I think the CAA should reduce the size of the class A airspace around Heathrow. It does not reflect the space actually needed by modern CAT aircraft.

  • Tony marmont said on July 13, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    We could scrap many of the restricted airspaces round airports as the climb performance and space needed by modern aircraft does not need so much space, GA is cramped into dangerous funnels as a result
    Also we should make it mandatory to fit air bags in GA as in cars, it would save a lot of lives
