The Government has appointed Byron Davies as its first ever General Aviation Champion, in order to identify a network of strategically important airfields and to help the future development of the general aviation sector. He is being assisted by York Aviation, which the Department has commissioned to carry out research on airfields of strategic significance. The Government intends to publish his report and the York Aviation report alongside the Aviation Strategy Green Paper later this year. The Government will only be able to take decisions on implementing a general aviation strategic network once the General Aviation Champion has made his recommendations and consultation has concluded on the Aviation Strategy Green Paper.
