You may have noticed that over the last week, there has been an increasing number of aircraft taking off from the Airport and flying over Chelford. Normally, we would not get this volume of air traffic using airspace over Chelford, which is why the current situation has been more noticeable for some residents. The Parish Council has raised the matter with the Airport authorities, in order to gain an official and accurate explanation and the statement can be found on the Parish Council website:
Airport authorities have apologised for the additional air traffic, but there have been several ongoing failures of essential equipment which have necessitated aircraft using non standard routes. It has nothing to do with the current review of airspace and the possible changes associated with this review.
