Safety / Airspace V DSC
« Last post by Hudson on Thursday 18 July 2019: 09:09 »
As you know the Peak district is surrounded by airspace.
As a club we know little about how/when and the frequency of the usage of the surrounding airspace. 
We know that more aircraft flights are made outside airspace then inside with very few incidents.
We have no cross communication with Manchester/East midlands/Leeds or Doncaster.

So, what i would like to do is set up a small group of pilots who are interested in airspace. With the intention of forging links with the surrounding airspace users. Finding out the reality of airspace use in our area.
Hoping to give the DSC more options for XC by negotiation.
For instance? East midlands  https://airspacechange.caa.co.uk/organizationsearch/

Manchester. https://airspacechange.caa.co.uk/PublicProposalArea?pID=159

Will air transport grow as NATS have predicted https://www.caa.co.uk/Commercial-industry/Airspace/Airspace-Modernisation-Strategy/About-the-strategy/
Do jets pollute? if they do then will the commercial industry grow as NATS have said?  https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2009GL039422

Are fiber Jackets better for Paragliding as they are simpler to wash? Not saying we a smelly bunch.
Are Fiber Jackets better for Paragliding because they are cheap? £15 from primarni.
Are Fiber Jackets better for Paragliding because you can waterproof them?
Are Buffalo Jackets best of all? (made in Sheffield)

That is good to know. I am a dealer for all the UK airsports stuff but not had the issue with a Plusmax so far. Steve

Hi Steve,
Others may find this useful too...
The parts or the press-studs on the ear-piece were intact - nothing wrong with them, but the ones on the webbing had pulled through.
I emailed Plusmax and the response was to get hold of UK Airsports.

I emailed UK Airsports and Richard was kind enough to send me some press-studs and the dye used to attach them to the webbing as long as I promised to post it back to him.

I paid for the shipping, the items arrived the next day, it took me half an hour to attach the new studs (most of which was taken up by working out how the dye worked!) and I then wandered down the road to the post office. The dye was back with Richard the following day...

Helmet looks like new again...

Cheers! Buzz
