1 Farnborough Airspace Change Proposal FACC Briefing 4 October 2012

2 Slide 2 What is an airspace change proposal? It is a formal Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) process that will be undertaken by TAG Farnborough Airport in order to introduce a new airspace design as well as arrival and departure procedure changes The process is outlined in CAA publications CAP724 and CAP725 The proposal will be prepared by TAG Farnborough Airport; the sponsor of the proposal NATS has been contracted to provide technical and operational support The Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) process requires comprehensive and quality consultation to ensure that the requirements and aspirations of all stakeholders are considered when developing the design options 1

3 Slide 3 Why is TAG Farnborough carrying out an ACP? In line with the TAG Farnborough Airports 2009 Master Plan, it is undertaking an airspace change to provide the airport with a more predictable and efficient airspace environment This ACP therefore represents TAG Farnborough continuing to deliver the commitments made in its Master Plan 8.4.8 TAG will work with the CAA to explore the possibility of applying for an Airspace Change Proposal. If granted, this would result in TAG having a greater degree of control over a larger area of airspace around the airport, and enable the introduction of procedures which could result in further noise mitigation. 2

4 Slide 4 Cont… Why is TAG Farnborough carrying out an ACP? To create a new operating environment which offers all airspace users predictability and consistency of operation Creating a known air traffic control (ATC) environment will assist the airport in catering for the increasing number of air traffic movements (ATMs) Aircraft will fly more predictable and efficient inbound and outbound flight paths There are three key benefits: 1. Improvements in overall airspace efficiency 2. Environmental benefits 3. Safety benefits 3

5 Slide 5 What are the benefits? 1. Improved airspace efficiency Advanced navigation systems will enable high-precision, optimal approach and departure procedures. Aircraft will remain at higher altitudes for longer and spend less time in the air 2. Environmental benefits Reduced track miles will be flown with more predictable and efficient flight paths Improvements in efficiency would result in: reductions in fuel usage, emissions (including CO 2 ) and noise around the airport 3. Safety benefits By changing to a new airspace environment, which includes elements of controlled airspace, the airport will be able to create a known and more predictable environment 4

6 Slide 6 What is the process? The process to be followed is outlined in CAA publication CAP725 and contains a number of phases: Phase 1Framework briefing Phase 2Proposal development Phase 3Preparing for consultation Phase 4Consultation and formal proposal submission Phase 5Regulatory decision Phase 6Implementation Phase 7Operational review 5
