General Aviation

Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire’s General Aviation team came together in a Force collaboration on 1 March 2011.

The officers are based at London Luton Airport but work out of the office around both counties on a weekly basis.

One of their primary responsibilities is the policing of small airfields and aviation sites across the two counties.  This involves visits to locations to meet site owners, pilots, operators, flying schools, aviation related businesses, and any interested parties.

The officers are dedicated to providing help and advice on security issues, crime prevention, and to promote compliance with all relevant legislation, in particular the Terrorism Act 2000 and the 12 hour rule.
