Brize Norton and Oxford ACP
Changing the airspace map of central England
Brize Norton & Oxford Airspace today
Brize Norton & Oxford Airspace Proposed
RAF Brize Norton and London Oxford Airport (LOA) at Kiddlington have both launched airspace change proposals (ACP) to establish more controlled airspace. The ACP documents are now in the consultation phase. This page collects ressources to help our members form their opinion on the proposed airspace and answer the consultation and will be updated as more information becomes available.
There are two ACP running in parallel and so two sets of documents.
The Brize Norton ACP webpage is https://www.raf.mod.uk/our-organisation/stations/raf-brize-norton/flying-info/ and the consultation document can be be downloaded as a PDF. Please note the erratta on the webpage as the consultation document hasn't been updated. Comments and questions can be emailed to email@example.com
The Oxford ACP webpage is http://www.oxfordairport.co.uk/the-airport/public-consultation/ and the consultation document can be downloaded as a PDF. Comments and questions can be emailed to LondonOxfordAirportConsultation@ospreycsl.co.uk
If this goes ahead in the current form the changes will affect all of us. Cross Country pilots will be severely impacted on all routes to the North East and East, aspiring Silver C pilots will be deprived of two easy options for badge flights and those of us who fly and train locally may find much more GA traffic routing over us to avoid the airspace.
Also check the BGA Site for the latest information.
Please all work on your responses to the above, ask questions and put your views in writing - before the 4th April. Please also consider contacting your local council, MP or any other bodies which may be interested or unaware of what is happening.
