HC Deb 16 February 1927 vol 202 c927
47. Brigadier-General WARNER

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will issue orders to the aerodromes in the vicinity of Biggleswade that pilots are not to perform low flying over any portion of that town?


Orders are already in force on the subject of low flying over towns or thickly inhabited districts, and, in particular, forbidding pilots to fly or manœuvre their machines in any manner likely to cause accident or annoyance to any person or persons or damage to live stock or property. The regulations, of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy, appear to me to provide sufficiently for the prevention of all flying of a kind to which reasonable exception could be taken. No further orders on the subject are considered to be necessary, but if persons who suffer annoyance from low flying will note the number of the aeroplane and will notify it, with the date, hour and locality of the occurrence, to the Secretary, Air Ministry, full inquiry will be made and action taken in the event of any breach of the regulations.

Brigadier-General WARNER

Will the hon. Baronet be good enough to include in the Regulations all the cases during the last six months in which disciplinary action has been taken for low flying and stunt flying?


I will consider that point.
