Statement from Old Warden:
From the upcoming ‘At Home’ event on Saturday 16 July, at which aircraft from The Collection will be flying, the display distances at Shuttleworth Old Warden will change.
Following a comprehensive review of the lateral separation distances for flying displays at Old Warden conducted by Shuttleworth Collection Aviation trustee Tim Routsis and Chief pilot Dodge Bailey, The Collection are pleased to announce that the CAA have accepted the proposal to reduce the lateral separation limits for The Collection’s types aircraft and displays.
This will significantly reduce the display line to crowd separation for the majority of The Collection’s non-aerobatic displays, so much so that Shuttleworth believe that there will be little perceptible difference to the display distances used to be enjoyed at Old Warden. The Collection expects written confirmation of the new display distances imminently.
