CAA airspace change guidance CAP 1616 published

Posted 22 January 2020 · Add Comment

Today the CAA published an updated third edition of CAP 1616, Airspace Change: Guidance on the regulatory process for changing the notified airspace design and planned and permanent redistribution of air traffic and on providing airspace information.



Purpose of the guidance
CAP 1616 describes the different stages of the airspace change process and the activities involved – from the conception of the need for a change, to engaging with those potentially affected, assessing the impacts of different design options from a safety, operational and environmental perspective, and ultimately the regulatory decision and if appropriate the implementation and subsequent review of the change.
 
Changes in the third edition
The third edition incorporates:
•    a new decision-making process for PPR proposals – a Planned and Permanent Redistribution of air traffic through a change in air traffic control operational procedure
•    changes to law or policy, such as an additional case (airspace reclassification) where the Secretary of State can call-in an airspace change proposal
•    updating hyperlinks or cross-references to other documents or organisations
•    improvements to the general clarity and consistency of the document.
 
The revised guidance can be downloaded at: www.caa.co.uk/cap1616
