We continue opposition to Gatwick route 3 which directs planes over Nutfield at heights below 4000ft. See below the CAA record showing the altitudes of aircraft flying over the village on this route during 2013 and 2014. This shows during these years 50% of aircraft flew below 4000ft.      
See the NCS submission made to the Civil Aviation Authority requesting a full review regarding the changes made to this route following the implementation of RNAV technology Route 3 CAA Submission - November 2016
