§ 124. Mr. Sumner
asked the Minister of Aviation what regulations exist to minimise nuisance to local residents by flying-club aircraft at Biggin Hill; and what steps are taken to enforce such regulations.
§ Mr. Rippon
Regulations on minimum altitudes for flight are contained in the Air Navigation Order, 1954. A pilot or operator contravening these rules renders himself liable to prosecution. In addition, the aerodrome authorities at Biggin Hill have introduced a number of special procedures to limit as much as possible disturbance to local residents. I am investigating the allegatilons that these rules are not being observed, details of which my hon. Friend has sent me, and I will write to him as soon as possible.
