BAD NEWS FOR POLLENSA


Although we were unable to attend the planned event in September, I have just heard that the fly-in has been cancelled.


It would appear that the local mayor and council have objected due to noise. This is surprising, considering the enormous size of Pollensa Bay (see right). The organisers of the Pollensa event were happy to set up a landing and circuit area well out in the bay, more a mile away from the coast, but there seemed to be no desire for compromise.


Considering that military twin-engine water bombers are based there and regularly use the bay; the ‘extra’ noise of ten single small-engined seaplanes over two days every alternate year, would not seem excessive!


The town will not benefit from business of the large number of visitors that usually attend these events, so it seems that everyone will lose.
