The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has published a new, quick-read guide on its Airspace Modernisation Strategy. The strategy aims to move to more efficient and sustainable aviation by delivering quicker, quieter and cleaner journeys.
Four strategic objectives:
- Maintaining and, where possible, improving the UK’s high levels of aviation safety. This is the most important part of the strategy, taking priority over everything else.
- Integration of diverse users – satisfying wherever possible the requirements of operators of all classes of aircraft, whether these be existing, new or rapidly developing airspace users, including defence and national security.
- Simplification – reducing complexity and improving efficiency. Airspace modernisation should result in the most efficient use of airspace and flow of traffic, accommodating new demands and improving system resilience to the benefit of everyone.
- Environmental sustainability – an overarching principle applied through all modernisation activities in accordance with the Government’s environmental objectives.
