CAA publishes updated CAP 1616 Airspace design

Posted 3 December 2018 · Add Comment

The CAA has published an updated second edition of CAP 1616 Airspace design: Guidance on the regulatory process for changing airspace design including community engagement requirements.



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 second edition
The second edition incorporates:
o    a revised process for the Secretary of State to 'call-in' an airspace change proposal
o    confirmation that next year the CAA will be consulting on a new process to consider certain changes to air traffic control procedures that result in a planned and permanent redistribution of air traffic
o    more information on how the airspace change process is scaled
o    more information on how design options are appraised
o    updated text either reflecting new EU legislation, hyperlinks and cross-references or to improve the general clarity and consistency of the document.

The revised guidance can be downloaded at www.caa.co.uk/cap1616

There are two versions, interactive and non-interactive. The interactive version is a bigger-sized file which includes linked navigation within the PDF allowing you to move around the document using tabs. The smaller file is a plain PDF of the same document, without the navigation.
