John Wheeler [BAAC Chairman] resigned, substituted by our complainee Bob Commander



15,000 members of the public use our eastern boundary road .. every year



Letter of complaint sent to the BAAC Secretary [Peter MacKenzie-Williams] ... Here



DRK Solicitors to Ashcroft 3:15pm 04 April 2014: "Whilst writing, I attach a copy of an e-mail that was sent by Mr Commander to Mel on the 16th March 2014.   When this e-mail was received, Mel was quite troubled by it because Mr Commander should not have been contacting her directly in this way."  

From: Robert John Commander [ordered by a Court to be a BAAC independent joint expert]
To: Ashcroft Airfield Solicitor [Mel Sumner] 16:14  16 March 2014   

Quote: "I'm sure your client is aware of the Pilots Rumour Network - PPrune - but I am not sure if you will have seen it. Here is the PPrune string on Ashcroft Airfield. As with the impression given by the Ashcroft website, PPrune is doing your client few favours.
Aviation is a very small world and, as you may be gathering, quite a gossipy one .. PPrune is read avidly by the regulators as by the flying community, so the views voiced in the forum are probably common knowledge to those interested within the CAA"

Nice work Bob: you're being sued for professional negligence we'll see you in Court

His Honour Judge Armitage: "It is my judgement that Mr Commander's comments were expressed intemperately and trespassed on the function of the Court" [who would disagree]

Robert John Commander should seek professional advice A lot of people have died Bob

The universal aptitude for ineptitude makes any human accomplishment an incredible miracle

22 Apr 2021: Bob Commander resigns   BAAC's interim Chairman: Andrew Belshaw
  



  


10 Jan 2021: Letter to BAAC Secretary calling for removal of Bob Commander ... here
  

2014-15: BAAC showed a lack of integrity, over inflated and arrogant - displeasing even the Court



25 Nov 2019: It appears that Bob Commander has lost three experts ..  in 3 days.




  


  
BAAC Hot Air Balloonist expert: "drivers can swerve out of the way of oncoming aircraft"


BAAC Balloonist: "pilots can avoid vehicles on landing"  suggested reading for Balloonist:

See and Avoid ... Peripheral and ... Tunnel vision

Caution: Regarding limitations of the "See-and-Avoid" Principle. Peripheral vision is reduced under conditions of high workload.

"A number of researchers have shown that peripheral stimuli are more difficult to detect when attention is focussed on a central task"

Safety Sense Leaflet 13: Collision Avoidance

"Another inherent eye problem is the narrow field of vision. Although our eyes accept light rays from an arc of nearly 200°, they are limited to a relatively narrow area (approximately 10–15°) in which they can actually focus on and classify an object. Although movement on the periphery can be perceived, we cannot identify what is happening there, and we tend not to believe what we see out of the corner of our eyes. This, aided by the brain, often leads to 'tunnel vision'.
  
http://www.rapp.org/archives/2013/08/see-and-avoid/
  
"The pilot’s functional visual field contracts under conditions of stress or increased workload.
The resulting ‘tunnel vision’ reduces the chance that an approaching aircraft will be seen in peripheral vision"

High Court Judge: LAC overflights cries out for expert assessment [not by a Balloonist]



After a High Court Judge recognises Ashcroft's concerns re: LAC low flying over public highways, commenting ...it "cries out" for a proper Expert assessment, Ashcroft responds by constructing a central HD tri-video device to protect our General Public (this is in addition to the 2 cameras that  'caught'  the LAC flying over our road at 19ft 4 in)

Butler Report:
LAC Focke Wulf flew 'dangerously low' over Ashcroft Road




23 Nov 2010: Ashcroft Airfield and 15,000 road users ransomed by Eric Clifford Mort's Lancashire Aero Club with high energy non-compliant aircraft.


March 2014: The CAA's Motorcycle & Microlight 'Hooligan' [Chris Finnigan's own words] and the BAAC's Hot Air Balloonist 'expert' [Robert John Commander] thought that the public risks were 'spurious-trivia'.

Summer 2017: Ashcroft repeatedly asked Kate Staples and Tony Rapson [UK CAA] to 'work' with us to manage the risks to the public but they steadfastly refused.
  
Summer 2017: 
John Wheeler, Chairman British Association of Aviation Consultants resigns
  

Summer 2017: Gwyn Topham [The Guardian] publishes a damning report on the CAA 
  
Autumn 2017: 
Ashcroft is now 'working' with the West Sussex Chief Coroner [Jemma Gaule] and the Shoreham Chief Investigator, Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team [Tony Taylor] who emailed us 17.11.2017  " were you aware that a couple of weeks ago the Prime Minister announced in Parliament that the Dept. of Transport had accepted the AAIB proposal for an independent review of the CAA ?"
  
Ashcroft will not be ransomed by Mort's Lanc's Aero Club with the CAA looking away

   
23 Nov 2017: Pre-action protocols against the CAA will be published on this website
 
23 Nov 2017:
 Commander reminded that he's being sued for professional negligence
