NATS Airspace Consultation for a proposed introduction of Controlled Airspace (CAS) in the vicinity of the Portsmouth and Southern CTAs

NATS have opened an Airspace Consultation regarding a proposed introduction of Controlled Airspace (CAS) in the vicinity of the Portsmouth and Southern CTAs off of the south coast of the UK. This consultation runs from Friday 30th June until Friday 25th August 2017, a period of eight weeks.

The proposal is to introduce a volume of Class C Controlled Airspace from FL125 to FL195 directly underneath the Southern CTA. The adjacent Portsmouth CTA (to the west) FL125+ will be reclassified from Class A to Class C.

The Military will retain primacy over the airspace which contains three Military Danger Areas.

This will deliver a uniform airspace classification of Class C across both airspace volumes and a uniform base of FL125.

It will also enable an improved descent profile for a south to north CDR which is currently under consideration by the CAA and facilitate direct routings to airports in the south of England.
