  • London's business airports attack RAF Northolt on safety

    News | 28 Jan 2015 12:08 | David Learmount

    ​Several airports serving the London, UK business aviation community have called for judicial clarification as to whether RAF Northolt, which encourages business flights to use it on a commercial basis, adheres to the aerodrome safety rules civil airports have to follow. The request for judicial review was rejected on a technicality, but the judge ruled that the Civil Aviation Authority, not the Military Aviation Authority, is responsible for ensuring the safety of civil aircraft that use Northolt. This reverses current assumptions.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Londons-business-airports-attack-RAF-Northolt-on-safety-408351/
