The UK Civil Aviation Authority has today published its decision not to approve airspace change proposals made by London Oxford Airport and RAF Brize Norton. For full details on the decisions please see their respective decision documents:

London Oxford Airport - Proposal for Revised Airspace and Instrument Flight Procedures

Summary of the Decision:

The CAA has considered the submitted material and has decided not to approve the ACP, for reasons including that the proposal does not make a compelling case for the creation of a TMZ, the proposal shows a misinterpretation of the TMZ rules and that the proposal does not adequately resolve the integration issues with BZN. Furthermore, the CAA has concluded that the final proposal is significantly different from the option presented as the preferred option during consultation, and that further consultation should have been undertaken with stakeholders to better assess the impacts of this final proposal.

RAF Brize Norton – Class D CTR/CTA

Summary of the Decision

The CAA has considered the submitted material and has decided not to approve the ACP, for reasons including that the proposal does not make a compelling and safe case for the creation of these new blocks of CAS and that the proposal does not adequately resolve the integration of IFP with LOA. Furthermore, the CAA has concluded that the airspace design included in the final proposal is significantly different from the option presented as the preferred option during consultation, and that further consultation should have been undertaken with all stakeholders to better record and assess the impacts of this final proposal.
