State of General Aviation in Government
Lord Byron Davies
Policeman, turned politician. But always a pilot, currently flying a Cessna 310.
After a successful career at the Metropolitan Police, Byron entered politics, to be soon elected to the House of Commons as MP for Glower in 2015. In 2017 he founded the All-Party Parliamentary Group on General Aviation, alongside fellow pilot and MP Grant Schapps. In 2018 Byron was appointed the DfT’s GA Champion where he produced a report, published in 2018, which made important recommendations to Government on preserving a strategic network of General Aviation airfields.
Byron was nominated for peerage in Theresa May’s resignation honours list, becoming Lord Davies of Glower and returning to Parliament In October 2019, no doubt because he has been an ambassador for General Aviation!
One not to miss!
