residents on Route 4 flightpath cover their ears

Gatwick Route 4 flightpath update

Tim Bowling spoke to Chris Quinlan from Plane Justice about how The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has written to Gatwick Airport with a way forward in resolving Gatwick Airport’s Route 4 flight path problem.

You may remember that In 2016 the CAA decided to bring in new Sat Nav technology (rather than the previous beacon system) and changed Route 4 to a new route for a consultation period. This meant planes now flying over villages such as Newdigate, Salfords, Leigh, Horley which lead to over 12,000 complaints from local residents.

Several groups formed to try overturn the flight path changes, one of which was Plane Justice, headed by Chris Quinlan.
