CAA approves proposal for controlled airspace at Norwich Airport.


The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the UK's aviation regulator, on Friday said it has approved a proposal from the operators of Norwich International Airport to establish a Controlled Airspace structure in the vicinity of the airport.

New airspace arrangements will consist of a Control Zone (CTR) and a Control Area (CTA) designed to protect arriving and departing aircraft.

The CAA has made the change to improve air safety in the vicinity of the airport. Current operations, in Class G uncontrolled airspace, requires air traffic control to re-route arriving aircraft or delay departing traffic to ensure the safety of all airspace users due to controllers having no information on other aircraft operating in the area.
