Artyom Liss, Steve Slater, Lord Suffolk.
LAA/BMAA merger; a visit to Charlton Park Airfield.
Show Notes

The Light Aircraft Association and the British Microlight Aircraft Association are proposing a merger. What will it mean for pilots? Will microlight owners be treated as poor relations in the new organisation? Will flexwing operators lose support and expertise? Steve Slater, CEO of the Light Aircraft Association, answers some of the most challenging questions around the merger.
At Charlton Park where you land and park your aircraft right in front of a 17th century manor house, visiting pilots are sometimes greeted by the landowner himself, Lord Suffolk. We went to see him and talk about the history of his estate and the airfield.
