As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, our Airspace Change Programme was paused in March 2020 but we are now restarting.
We have been notified that airports will receive some funding support from the Department of Transport to help reinvigorate the programme. This means we are now restarting this important work, picking up from where we left off."
We will soon be in contact with our previous group of stakeholders. In addition the CAA have provided the following statement relating to timescales:
“Until iteration two of the airspace change Masterplan, including the associated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport, as co-sponsors of airspace modernisation, no indicative timeline can be agreed by the CAA for this airspace change proposal. It is anticipated that the Develop & Assess Gateway for the this ACP will not be before Q1 2022.”
We will be holding engagement briefing sessions with our stakeholder list during Q2 22 and Q3 22 as part of our Stage 2 design activity.
