Brize Norton revises latest airspace proposal
RAF Brize Norton recently hosted a stakeholder meeting at which its latest and near-final design for a larger area of controlled airspace surrounding the airfield was described in detail.
The GA Alliance (GAA), including the British Gliding Association (BGA), was represented at the meeting alongside others from the GA community, reports the BGA.
The revised design replaces previously proposed CTA Class D airspace with Class E+ airspace, which is a UK version of ICAO Class E with additional conspicuity. In the case of the Brize Norton design, the intent is that radio or transponder provides the required conspicuity.
