I understand SP but some pilots have voiced concerns and I don't think they should be ignored.

Some anonymous posters have made some comments,

if they have valid concerns they should contact the relevant authority’s which would allow the person who they are complaining about to give his side of things if there is a case to answer in the first case

You proberbly wouldn’t like it if I started saying things about you that maybe were true or maybe false you do need to get this in perspective SP is right about this

I'm convinced this attitude is part of the problem with GA in the UK. Look at a golf club or gym patronised by people who have sufficient disposal income for flying and you can see where the money is spent. Try and run a training course in the latest management fad for the same demographic and you need good as new, comfortable, ideally slightly luxurious, facilities. Not because they don't take the course seriously but because otherwise they will think you don't take their training (or golf, or fitness programme) as seriously as they do.

If you're a 17 year old itching to get in the air by hook or by crook, or a military trainee doing as ordered, then a shed with make do and mend facilities isn't an issue. But once you end up running a flying school you have to remember that your students are paying customers and probably used to upmarket facilities. So it is an issue for them. Perhaps it shouldn't be, but it is.

MD600 - I take your points but this is an internet forum, not a court of law - inevitably posters are anonymous and you have to sort the wheat from the chaff with what people say.

I agree there are official channels but how many have the time or inclination to use them?

Anyway, Happy New Year to all

Any further ideas on why HA EGLD shut up shop?

I heard a rumour that this was due to Denham (Bickertons?) deciding not to renew the HA lease, but I have no idea why this lease would not have been renewed by the landlord.
