There are only two weeks to go to give the CAA your views on the CAA's draft procedure. Enter them online at:

On 1st December 2020 the CAA will introduce a new procedure to review and where appropriate amend airspace classifications.

The classification determines the flight rules that apply in a given volume of airspace and the procedures that must be followed.
Normally based on a two-year cycle, the proposed new procedure will have three stages:

  • Consider, in which we decide whether to launch a review
  • Review, in which we use appropriate intelligence, including continuous monitoring of airspace safety, access or utilisation issues, to draw up a draft plan of airspace volumes where a case could be made for amending the classification, and consult airspace users on that plan
  • Amend, in which the CAA for the first time takes on the role of designing and proposing amendments to airspace, with essential input from the controlling authority for the airspace concerned, and then consults those impacted by the final proposals.

Have your say on the new procedure
You can give the CAA your views on its proposed procedure by visiting the CAA consultation website before 23.59 on 17th September 2020.
