I can confirm ATC at QLA is affected by this as well to the same level, staff were seen leaving the site at about midday. The Gliding Society and the membership have been informed and is cooperating with the Administrators. At this stage there is no risk to LGS at all as this is an eventuality that has been planned for.

There was a planned take over which must have fallen through? If they have made engineers redundant, then the future looks bleak. No doubt it will be offered as a 'going concern' and certainl;y at Lasham some staff will be required to keep the airframes in store airworthy.

Pleased to be able to advise that a buyer has been found for the Lasham site and that maintenance will continue albeit on a reduced basis subject to appropriate approvals being obtained. If all goes to plan new company will be up and running from January 4th 2016
