17.03.2011  Prestwick Airport for BMAA Safety Day. Update

The BMAA is delighted to announce that the management at Prestwick Airport have kindly agreed to allow microlights to fly in to the airport in order to attend The BMAA Safety Day which is being held at the NATS Centre nearby. The date is confirmed as Saturday 14th May 2011. This is a rare fly-in opportunity as microlights are not normally permitted to land at Prestwick. The management have waived any additional fees associated with the event and a single payment of 20 will cover the landing and handling fees for the day. There will be specific instructions for microlight pilots which will be published when they are finalised. In turn, NATS are providing the Safety Day venue, free of charge, at their nearby air traffic control centre. A full day of practical safety information specifically aimed at microlight pilots plus visits to air traffic operations rooms, a chance to chat with the "voices at the other end of the radio" together with navigational and practical safety advice will ensure an exciting, interesting and informative day for microlight pilots attending.
