All pilots need airspace in which to operate. The CAA Directorate of Airspace Policy (DAP) is charged with regulating the UK airspace to provide a safe and efficient environment for all aviation activity from the simple recreational flying that we do to the business needs of the Commercial Air Transport sector.
There are ongoing changes to the airspace all the time. This part of the BMAA web site is set up to publicise the proposed changes and those that have taken place. Members should read the information and respond directly to the CAA, or through the BMAA, with any comments that they might want to be considered as the change proposal goes ahead. The CAA are obliged to consult on airspace changes. The requirements in the Airspace Change Process are documented in a CAA publication CAP725
In addition to airspace changes we will also include here any other applications that might affect the airspace use, such as wind farm development or the establishment of a new activity within the airspace and any other airspace related matters that we think should be highlighted.
We hope that you will find this information useful and welcome feedback.
