Got to say, aerodrome placement is not something that can be thought out in order to deliver an airspace strategy.
It's obviously driven by other factors - including historic conflicts!
If only life was like The Sims.
Got to say in the world of big things these are very minor provincial airports that in the States, and ineed even in some parts of Europe, would barely register on the pulseomiter, and could and should be intergrated into the airspace structure, without all the fuss we are seeing. I am afraid it is old case of empire building on very poor foundations, to which everyone else is just caving in because there is no realistic opposition.
I do wonder how many pilots have seen how things operate elsewhere without all this fuss.
I have said before, but still will say it again, this progression will be the demise of GA and some people here just do not see it coming. Go and fly in Italy and see how this can so easily end up and mark my words that is the course on which we are set.
Freedoms are hard won, and very easily lost.
DaveW I know we do disagree on occasions, and this is set on a course to disaster, as well as the current infringement policy. I referred to an article in another mag. not far from here and it is well worth a read. It is some brave journalism and tells it as it is.
