As the days get longer and the weather improves, aviation enthusiasts across the country will be taking to the skies in their thousands to explore the world from up above.

After two years of Covid restrictions limiting the amount of flying time for many pilots, we’d like to support the General Aviation (GA) community on a safe return to flying and take the opportunity to talk about the tools and assistance available to GA pilots. UK airspace is still some of the busiest in the world, and with commercial traffic increasing it is important that everyone plays their part in helping to keep the skies safe for all users.

Join us as we talk to air traffic controller, Amanda Rhodes and Chief Executive of the General Aviation Safety Council, Mike O’Donoghue, and hear about their experiences and top tips for safe flying this season.
