  • Review and scrutinise airspace proposals from a wide range of sponsors such as operators, innovation companies, airports, the military, spaceports, producing objective and independent assessments of the direct and consequential airspace impacts for each proposed airspace change design.
  • Lay out the conclusions of these assessments and form a key part of the CAA’s transparent decision-making process for approvals.
  • Provide advice, guidance and direction to airspace change sponsors or any other interested parties regarding airspace issues related to operations conducted both inside and outside controlled airspace.
  • Assist in developing and implementing strategies and policies for the consideration of airspace design, use or change in accordance with the Department for Transport’s directions to the CAA, UK legislation and Government regulation and guidance.
  • As an Airspace Regulator you will act as the subject matter expert on airspace matters within the CAA.
