By Steve Hutt – 23rd June 2016

30th June 2016 will mark the end of my second year as FASVIG Programme Coordinator. During that time I believe FASVIG has begun to have an increasing and beneficial influence on the way General Aviation’s needs are viewed on issues related to airspace in the UK. I am proud of what we have achieved so far. However, on a more personal note, my FASVIG commitments had largely taken over my life. Recently I felt that some rebalancing was overdue so I have taken the decision that now is the right time to step down.

With effect from 1st July 2016 another Steve – Steve Green – will be taking over as FASVIG Programme Coordinator. I wish him and FASVIG continued success. Based on the actions FASVIG is taking, I believe that FASVIG has a strong approval rating among the UK GA community and hope that community will give FASVIG and Steve Green their continued support.
