GAAC Communications

GAAC is able to respond to media enquiries and provide background information on airfield planning and other issues in UK general aviation. If we can’t help, we should be able to point you in the right direction given the expertise in our supporting organisations!

Meanwhile GAAC is interested in hearing from those who benefit from airfields and who therefore wish to support our work — for example, aircraft owners, pilots, and airfield owners themselves, along with potential sponsors. 

Please keep in mind we also work at national/Government level to help establish better legal protection for airfields in general, which benefits the whole of the UK General Aviation sector. Much of this work is carried out in cooperation with the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Aviation, and GAAC actively participates in various APPG Working Groups including the Airfields WG.

To contact Ian, please e-mail communications (at) or fill in our Contact Form and please consider joining our e-mail list to receive GAAC Alerts (see Home page). Please also address any legal and planning queries to Ian or to our Vice Chair, John Gilder, by e-mailing planning [at]



Allie Dunnington represents the British Women Pilots' Association (BWPA) on the GAAC Board.
GAAC Vice Chair, John Gilder (R), and Chairman, Charles Henry (Centre), are often available at aviation events to answer queries relating to General Aviation in the UK, and Airfields in particular.
Aviation media representatives meet with the APPG for (General) Aviation when Grant Shapps was chair.
