HC Deb 24 November 1926 vol 200 c423W

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will consider the creation of a small aerodrome in Hyde Park for the benefit of light aeroplane taxi companies or clubs, having regard to the impetus such a measure would give to flying owing to the convenience it would afford to business men, officials, and others to whom quick access to the centre of the Metropolis is all important?


My Noble Friend's suggestion has already been considered by the Air Ministry, but, under present conditions of flying, Hyde Park is not considered suitable for the purpose suggested, owing to the proximity of high buildings and trees and its densely populated surroundings.
