General Updates -June 2020

The DofT will shortly be issuing guidance for the resumption of training and dual flying from 4 July – see http://www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk/2020/News/flying.html

CAA – The Manual of Air Traffic Services (MATS) Part 1 (CAP 493) has been published as Edition 8, which will become effective on 31 July 2020: www.caa.co.uk/cap493

On 1 December 2020 the CAA will introduce a new procedure to review and, where appropriate, amend the classification of airspace. The classification determines the flight rules that apply in that airspace and the procedures that must be followed. You have the opportunity to offer comments on a draft of this new procedure at: https://consultations.caa.co.uk/policy-development/draft-procedure-to-review-airspace-classification/?mc_cid=223f21e64c&mc_eid=3edf2eff83

Last December the CAA also asked us to suggest specific airspace that they could review using the new procedure, once in place. Unfortunately the information provided on traffic flow was not fit for the intended purpose. However a summary of the responses is published at:
