The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has set out proposals to establish additional Class E airspace in the vicinity of the Aberdeen Control Zone/Control Area. The possible need for the airspace classification change emerged from an earlier consultation setting out the CAA’s intention to replace Class F airspace with Class E airspace.
The Class E airspace is required at Aberdeen in order to ensure local airspace management remains as operationally and environmentally efficient as possible. The proposals for Aberdeen are now subject to a consultation – details on how to participate can be found on the CAA website at www.caa.co.uk/consultations.
The consultation period runs from 9 October 2013 to 4 November 2013 and comments received will inform the CAA’s final proposals regarding the replacement of Class F airspace. In order to allow sufficient time for airspace users, aircraft operators and air traffic service providers to prepare for changes, the replacement of Class F would be completed no later than AIRAC 12/2014 (13 November 2014).
