  1. How can an operator who has effectively thrown the gliding club off the airfield, who have been there since at least 1974 , have any respect in the GA community.

      Both the council, who are the gliders landlords (not BEA) and the glider club themselves broke CAA rules on health and safety and ignored the local by-laws in the airfield manual.
      As a result, AAA not BEA had no choice but to stop gliding until all parties had agreed a safe way forward.
      The council have still made no effort to enter meaningful dialogue to recommence their tenants gliding activities.
      Flyer magazine also need to check the contents of their editorial before publishing inaccurate statements.
