When FASVIG (now Airspace4All) was formed, one of its first projects concerned the use of VFR flight plans to pre-note interaction with CAS and ATS units to reduce RTF and controller workload and to make flights more predictable. This failed to achieve support from NATS because systems at Swanwick could only process IFR flight plans. … Continue reading Known Intent Traffic Environment
There is an increasing demand to fly drones beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) in Class G airspace. This potentially brings those drones into contact with manned aviation flying VFR in the same airspace, which includes General Aviation (GA), commercial air transport and military users. Whilst there is an industry aspiration to fully integrate … Continue reading Drone Infringement Safeguarding
Airspace4All and British Gliding Association (BGA) are working together to help deliver a training and testing regime to facilitate glider pilot access and uptake of the Flight Radio Telephony Operators Licence (FRTOL). Airspace modernisation necessitates all GA pilots to be able to use VHF communications to integrate safely with the commercial sector and associated ATS. … Continue reading FRTOL for Glider Pilots
Airspace4All has carried out an audit of the extant CTR/CTA airspace in the UK, along with all associated SID/STAR routing. Using a baseline of the commercial air traffic containment principles (ICAO) employed elsewhere in Europe, Airspace4All will produce a detailed statistical report on how the volumes of terminal airspace in the UK could be designed … Continue reading Project Update – Future ATM Concepts and Airspace Design
Within the UK there has been a steady growth in the volume of regulated airspace at lower levels where the impact is felt particularly by the recreational pilot. As the volume of such airspace increases, the volume of un-regulated airspace decreases. Non-commercial airspace users are confined to a shrinking portion of the resource. This process … Continue reading Project Update – Flexible Use Airspace
