Free Olympic Airspace Chart

News Release


A detailed 1:500,000 VFR chart of the London 2012 Olympics airspace restrictions and changes will be given away free to pilots who purchase the new 1:500,000 VFR chart for South East England, due to be published on 8 March 2012. The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said it had reached an agreement with NATS Aeronautical Information Service, which publishes all UK airspace charts, to provide complimentary copies of the Olympics chart for anyone who buys the regular VFR chart for South East England. This initiative is jointly funded by the CAA, NATS and the Department for Transport.

Copies of the chart will also be available for free download as an A3 PDF document from the Airspace & Safety Initiative’s dedicated Olympics website http://www.airspacesafety.com/olympics in Spring 2012.

Also, the official latitudes and longitudes for the temporary airspace restrictions around London and Weymouth put in place for the duration of London 2012, can now be downloaded at http://www.airspacesafety.com/olympics The restrictions to be put in place for the other venues will be published in early 2012.
