The Airspace & Safety Initiative (ASI) has released a podcast aimed at advising pilots on Olympic intercept procedures.

A ‘quick-guide’ leaflet was published earlier this month.

ASI has recommended that pilots planning on flying close to the boundary of the Restricted Zone (marked as R112 on Olympic airspace charts) should read or listen to the information provided in case they accidentally stray into the zone.

Its podcast was recorded with help from members of the RAF flight crews who will be scramble to intercept aircraft that infringe the Restricted Zone during the Games.

The recording was produced by the team behind the Flaps Podcast.

CD versions of the podcast will also be available from ASI’s stand (B8) at AeroExpo, which will be taking place at Sywell Aerodrome from 25 to 27 May.

Air traffic controllers from Atlas Control – the organisation responsible for GA traffic in the Restricted Zone during the Olympics – will also be on hand to answer questions.
