General Aviation in UK

first_imgGeneral Aviation in UK General Aviation (GA) is often referred to as the ‘grassroots’ of aviation and is the bedrock to our successful and world-leading aviation sector.It’s worth nearly £4 billion to the UK economy, supporting nearly 40,000 jobs. The hundreds of aerodromes up and down the country form an important part of the nation’s transport infrastructure.General Aviation provides the entry point for careers in aviation and is fundamental to inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals. It supports vital services from law enforcement to life-saving airborne medical and search and rescue teams, and provides future pilots, engineers and other highly skilled professionals a first glimpse of a potential career in aviation.Therefore, it is only right that the government’s vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for General Aviation as a flourishing, wealth-generating and job-producing sector of the economy. Our ambitions remain high and we have set out our priorities and how we can achieve these in the government’s General Aviation Roadmap, which I am pleased to announce. The roadmap sets out our vision and strategic priorities for the sector, alongside our ambitious programme of work that will help us to deliver this. We will work alongside the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and our GA stakeholders to achieve these ambitions.I also wish to set out the government’s view that it is clear from the success of our aviation sector there is a national need to protect and enhance our strategic network of GA airfields – to ensure they continue to prosper and drive the economic growth this country needs and to support levelling up right across the country.Airfields offer potential for highly skilled, dynamic and innovative businesses to grow and flourish – for manufacturing and maintenance of aircraft, aviation services, and for research and innovation.At the heart of these efforts, we will work with airfields to strengthen their economic and strategic value both locally, regionally and nationally by supporting their development, and promoting mixed-use where there are benefits from offering their unique infrastructure to the wider community including for business, education, cultural and recreational activities. There are already several airfields within the UK, which share their infrastructure with a wide range of industries, as well as providing vital services to other government services. These airfields andmany more are not just important to their local economies, but also critical to the success of the aviation sector.General Aviation will also play a crucial part in our government’s focus on innovation and decarbonisation. Trialling, testing and rolling out the next generation of zero emission technologies within General Aviation will support their development and pave the way for their wider adoption in larger commercial-scale operations – supporting decarbonisation of the wider sector and economy. This will help us reach our net zero target by 2050.More widely, many aerodromes have been affiliated with operations during World Wars 1 and 2 and have since hosted heritage assets through the form of museums or have become designated historical sites. It is important these sites, which are so important to our heritage are able to thrive and grow to be enjoyed and appreciated by generations to come.Our aviation heritage is rich, deep and rightly a source of great national pride. Looking forward, the government’s vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for General Aviation as a flourishing, wealth generating and job-producing sector of the economy. /Public Release.

Measles Exposure Advisory

first_imgHomeBriefsMeasles Exposure Advisory Aug. 24, 2019 at 5:50 amBriefsHealthNewsMeasles Exposure AdvisoryGuest Author2 years agomeaslesMuntu Davispublic health The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) is looking to identify others who are at risk for measles and may have been exposed to a non-resident measles case that traveled to Los Angeles County while infectious. Public Health urges residents, especially those who travel internationally and those who have not been fully protected against measles, to get the measles immunization in order to better protect their individual health and to prevent the spread of measles to others.Other people may have been exposed to measles since public locations were visited by the person with measles while infectious. The potential public exposure locations, days and times were as follows:August 11, 2019 – Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Terminal 8, between 9 – 11:30 p.m.August 14, 2019 – Universal Studios, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City.August 15, 2019 – TCL Chinese Theatres, 6925 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028 (formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre)August 15, 2019 – Madame Tussauds, 6933 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028August 15, 2019 The Original Farmers Market, 6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90036August 15, 2019 – Santa Monica Pier and Beach, 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401August 15, 2019 – Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Tom Bradley International Terminal, between 6 – 11:59 p.m.There is no known current risk related to measles that exists at these venues at this time. There are additional exposure sites in Orange County which can be found at: http://www.ochealthinfo.com/measles.Anyone who may have been at these locations on these dates may be at risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after being exposed and should:Review their immunization and medical records to determine if they are protected against measles. People who have not had measles infection previously or received the measles immunization may not be immune and should talk with a health care provider about receiving measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization.Contact and notify their health care provider as soon as possible about a potential exposure if they are pregnant, an infant, have a weakened immune system and/or are unimmunized.Monitor themselves for illness with fever and/or an unexplained rash from 7 days to 21 days after their exposure (the time period when symptoms may develop); if symptoms develop, stay at home and call a healthcare provider immediately.Currently, there have been 16 measles cases among Los Angeles County residents in 2019, in addition to 11 non-resident measles cases that traveled through Los Angeles County (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena as cases identified in those cities are reported by their local health departments). The majority of cases to date were unimmunized or did not know whether they had ever been immunized.“For those who are not protected, measles is a highly contagious and potentially severe disease that initially causes fever, cough, red, watery eyes, and, finally, a rash,” said Muntu Davis, MD, MPH, Los Angeles County Health Officer. “Measles is spread by air and by direct contact even before you know have it. The MMR immunization is a very effective measure to protect yourself and to prevent the unintentional spread of this potentially serious infection to others.”Measles immunizations are available at healthcare providers, local pharmacy or health clinic. Public Health clinics offer no or low-cost immunizations for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. To find a nearby Public Health clinic, call 2-1-1 or visit http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/measles or call 2-1-1.Submitted by the Los Angeles County Public Health DepartmentTags :measlesMuntu Davispublic healthshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentLet the people voteMetro to resume Expo Line service in downtown Los AngelesYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoBriefsLos Angeles Sheriff’s deputy accused of destroying evidence of 2019 assaultAssociated Press11 hours agoBriefsCalifornia State Treasurer Fiona Ma to Speak at Online Santa Monica College Commencement Ceremony June 25Guest Author11 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agolast_img read more

BCSC 2008: Lord Heseltine says return power to local people

first_imgHeseltine, speaking at the 2009 BCSC Conference in Liverpool, called for a `bonfire of controls’ to leave cities and towns to compete for Whitehall cash.Under a bigger, bolder version of his `City Challenge’ programme from 1990 which saw run down areas compete for cash, Heseltine envisages major conurbations taking greater control of their affairs.`If you leave this to Whitehall all you will get is formulae and platitudes’ Heseltine, who is credited with the revival of Britain’s inner cities in the 1980s, said.Asked how he viewed progress in the Thames Gateway, a concept he also conceived, Heseltine said: `The organagram controlling it is a shambles. Everybody is in charge and nobody is offended. It’s a political solution.’Heseltine also called for directly elected mayors for four year terms to also take on the role of council chief executive, forming a new cadre of highly-paid, dominant civic officials across the UK.last_img
