This forum is for anything to do with light aviation
hopefully it will be approved... But, I wouldn't be surprised if all of a sudden they manage to find other barriers to block the development of the airfield.

Another tweak to the plans after the previous being rejected...
Press release: http://www.redhillaerodrome.com/index.p ... -july-2012
New plans: http://www.redhillaerodrome.com/index.php/rwyplanapp12
A bit puzzling. The thresholds willl be displaced by 150m and this 150m will not be used for takeoff or landing (but there is a turning pan at both ends).
I can understand 'not available for landing' but why for takeoff too? The longer the TORA, the higher the aircraft will be when it crosses the airfield boundary, hence less possible noise nuisance to people living outside the boundary. The licenced TORA can stay the same to achieve the necessary 2% TOCS, so why stop aircraft using this bit for takeoff?
What's an iPad? Do I really care?
I don't think they are stopping it being used - the way the diagram is presented to the public in the documents is that on takeoff the aircraft should be well above the far end threshold and it's that far end bit of runway that's "not used for takeoff".
