Low Flying Aircraft

Cllr Peter Taylor recently met with representatives from Elstree Aerodrome to discuss complaints from residents relating to low flying aircraft. He was informed that the aerodrome plans to increase the minimum height for both planes and helicopters within the next month or so. Peter has also asked for one of Oxhey’s ward councillors to join the Elstree Aerodrome Consultative Committee and this will be discussed at the next meeting of the group.

    Like to stand in my garden and look at the aircraft.Less noise than the big airliners.Complaints total rubbish.

    It’s the airliners going over almost constantly that cause me more of a problem. I agree that some of the small aircraft do seem to fly quite low but they are relatively intermittent.

    Quite agree with Chris. I find the sound of the light aircraft quite relaxing and have no objections whatsoever.

    The law states that aeroplanes are not low flying for the purposes of taking off and landing. Oddly enough this enables them to park on the ground!

    Clearly lots of vested interests in the comments section.
    The reality is that these flights are a nuisance. They are so low over Bushey that they cause a huge disturbance even inside my home with the windows shut.

    I was at the cemetery and mourners could not grieve in peace without noisy aircraft flying overhead.
