The publishers of Gremline welcome material that aviators,
agencies and ground service providers feel should be disseminated in the
interests of flight safety. We also welcome suggestions on the type of
information that would usefully expand this site — our publishing
policy is to respond, as far as possible, to the demands of the General
Aviation community. Our e-mail, postal address, telephone and fax numbers can
be found on the Contact page. Articles and papers should be submitted as MS
Word documents, either as an e-mail attachment or on floppy disk or CD to our

Although we continually trawl a wide range of sources and receive incident
and accident reports from a number of official bodies, not all incidents are
reported or reportable through official channels. Gremline welcomes reports
of incidents, accidents and, especially, near misses (i.e. incidents that
‘almost happened’) in its role as a disseminator of flight safety
information. We also welcome informed articles on flight safety, especially
where the subject matter is based on personal experience and hard lessons
learned! Gremline is happy to act as a clearing house for responses to
published articles in order to stimulate debate (see The Gremline Forum
The editors reserve the right to edit or serialise articles to fit
available space, and to verify technical or other information through
consultation with specialist advisers where necessary. Potential contributors
are advised to study the Copyright page and especially the section on Third
Party Material. Contributors are also strongly recommended to contact the
publishers by e-mail, telephone or post with an outline of their intended
subject matter before submitting articles.
The Gremline Forum
Our Forum page features correspondence, news and topical
editorial comment. Contact the editors on subjects in the public interest.
Let us know what you think about Gremline and let us have your suggestions on
how the site might be developed in the future.
Gremline includes a page listing Emergency Diversion Airfields in the
United Kingdom and this feature has been welcomed by official organisations
and by our general readership. The agreement by most UK aerodromes to waive
landing charges for emergency diversions was the result of persistent
lobbying over a long period by AOPA in the UK.
We are keen to publish details where similar waivers have been
agreed in countries and regions other than the UK. Details should be
submitted by statutory Civil Aviation Authorities or national AOPAs as MS
Word documents, following the style and content of our UK Emergency
Diversions page. We are also happy to report on, and support, efforts to
persuade airfield owners to allow emergency diversions without charge.
