UK airspace is a key piece of national infrastructure. Its modernisation, which will deliver quicker, quieter and cleaner journeys by air, is long overdue.

Yesterday the CAA launched a 12-week consultation on a refreshed Airspace Modernisation Strategy which will:

  • Extend the strategy out to 2040
  • Place integration of all airspace users at the core of the strategy, including accommodating new aerial vehicles like drones, advanced air mobility and spacecraft
  • Aim for simpler airspace design and supporting regulations
  • Introduce sustainability as an overarching principle to be applied through all modernisation activities, including better managing noise and helping achieve government commitments to net zero emissions
  • Align delivery of the strategy with the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan and provide a clear strategic path for rulemaking activities, now that the UK has left the EU and the European Aviation Safety Agency.

The consultation closes on 4th April 2022.
