Airshow Gets CAA Thumbs-up

The Scottish Airshow is given the thumbs up to fly, following The Civil Aviation Authority’s review of the Shoreham airshow crash. The CAA has recommended new safety measures include increasing the minimum altitude for ex-military jet aircraft performing aerobatic manoeuvres. Doug Mclean, one of the organisers of the Airshow, which will be held at Ayr Low Green on 2nd and 3rd September, says:

“We are very supportive of the CAA review and have participated through the British Air Display Association. The airshow venue, at Ayr seafront, is one of the most attractive and suitable in the UK, as the displays are performed over water. Our flying display director, Mike Woods, is a highly experienced aerobatic pilot and display director. Mike and the CAA are very confident that we are already compliant with the requirements of the CAA for this and future airshows.”
