CAA announces intention to replace Class F airspace
The CAA has launched a consultation concerning its proposal to replace Class F Advisory Routes in the London and Scottish Flight Information Regions.
The decision follows an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) audit of the UK that took place during February 2009, as well as consideration of the airspace classification requirements of the Standardised European Rules of the Air (SERA), scheduled for UK implementation by 4 December 2014.
The CAA is proposing to replace Class F Advisory Routes with Class E airways, enhanced by additional SERA-compliant conspicuity requirements.
The consultation will run until 12 July 2013, and replacement of Class F will occur no later than 13 November 2014.
