Following a review of airspace arrangements in the Manchester area, and
consultation with all sections of the aviation community, the CAA has approved
changes to the boundaries of the Manchester Control Zone (CTR).
The changes will be introduced on 8 March 2012 and will
result in a reduction in the size of the Manchester CTR, and changes to the
shapes of the overlying Control Areas. Approach and departure routes serving Manchester Airport will remain unchanged.
Details of the changes will be published in Aeronautical
Information Circular Yellow 03/2012 on 26 January 2011, and will be
incorporated into the UK AIP and 1:500000 Aeronautical Chart ‘Southern England
on 8 March 2012. ‘Northern England and Northern Ireland’ will be updated
when it is next published on 3 May 2012.
The revisions will also be depicted on 1:250000 Aeronautical
Charts 'Central England and Wales'
and 'England East' when the current editions are replaced in May and June 2013
The CAA’s decision letter, which includes a chart and
co-ordinates of the revised airspace can be found here: http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/7/20111220ManchesterACPDecisionLetter.pdf
