RAF Lyneham changes

RAF Lyneham aerodrome will open Monday to Friday between 0800(L) and 2359(L).  

RAF Lyneham's CTR and CTA, will remain extant during Lyneham's opening hours Monday to Friday.  Between the aerodrome closing and then opening the next working day, the CTR and CTA is rescinded and becomes Class G, open FIR, airspace.  An ATZ of 2.5 mile radius will remain in place.  Details of this change will be issued by NOTAM today.

The Lyneham CTR and CTA will be permanently rescinded with effect from 0800(L) on 20 Jul 11 and the Military Emergency Diversion Aerodrome commitment will pass to RAF Brize Norton permanently.  Additionally, from this date until the aerodrome finally closes at 2359(L) 30 Aug 11, the Lyneham ATZ will be activated by NOTAM on a tactical basis to cater for pre-planned aircraft movements only.
The ATZ co-ordinating authority, when RAF Lyneham aerodrome is closed is ATC Squadron at RAF Brize Norton.  Frequencies and contact details remain unchanged and are annotated in the table below.

Please note that it may be necessary to extend opening times on a tactical basis to cater for operational necessity.  Where this is the case, controlling authority for the ATZ and ATC services will remain with either Lyneham ATC Sqn or Tactical ATC.  Every effort will be made to issue details by NOTAM where time allows.  There will be no extension to the activation times of the CTR or CTA". << Go Back
