Already seen and signed.

Very good template for a letter to your mp, which came from a planes tv e-mail (credit to ukar I believe)

I've added an extra page to explain why I, as one of his constituents have a vested interest.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Read and comment returned.

No matter what licensing or authorization is created, in the sad case of Shoreham, sadly none of that would have saved these people, though there is still not official outcome to the enquiry.
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

Sywell is the first 'casualty' I'm aware of for 2016 (having just announced that they won't be holding their airshow this year & having directly mentioned the CAA fees).   :(

It will be interesting to see how many airshows actually go ahead.  2016 was always going to be a quieter year without 558 but not this quiet..?
985 posts on last forum - so I get the \'hallowed 1000\' for just 15 on this one (yippee!)

Llandudno and Dawlish are not going ahead either, tho' they haven't specifically mentioned the new air show proposals it wouldn't surprise me if they are waiting to see what the changes/charges will be in upcoming years.

UK Government petition here https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/120628

12,000 signatures so far, 100,000 needed to 'be considered' for debate by MPs.
