TAG Farnborough Airport in the UK has announced the start of public consultation on its airspace change proposal (ACP), which will run from 3 February to 2 May 2014.

The airport currently operates within Class G airspace (uncontrolled airspace), which is shared with other airports and general aviation activities.

The purpose of TAG Farnborough Airport’s ACP is to create a new operating environment with elements of controlled airspace, which would offer all airspace users predictability and consistency of operation.

“The proposed airspace design creates more precise and efficient flight paths, avoiding some commonly overflown regions. Aircraft could also climb more quickly which would further reduce noise near populated areas,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO of TAG Farnborough Airport.

“We are encouraging the local community to provide feedback on the new design,” added O’Reilly.

Members of the public and other interested parties will be able to review proposed plans and leave feedback on potential airspace changes via a dedicated website: www.consultation.tagfarnboroughairport.com.
