This discussion paper explains why greater consensus in aviation policy is desirable and then explores what a strategy for such consensus-building could look like.

The paper argues that a process of reframing the aviation debate must be undertaken involving a clear set of policy objectives, an enhanced understanding of public attitudes and a move away from oppositional, short-termist politics that seek to place electoral gain above the long-term interests of policy.
