October 2018 - NWLTF submits objection to airport flight path proposals

The NWLTF submission has been acknowledged by the CAA who have indicated that they will take it into consideration as part of their regulatory decision-making process.

The NWLTF objection, together with an executive summary, can be viewed here. The NWLTF objection letters which have been sent to the Civil Aviation Authority can be found in the Documents section and are available here and here.
