Airspace Change Proposal

Changes to airspace rules around Exeter Airport are being proposed to take account of the airport’s continued growth.

The airport has drawn up its proposals in consultation with a wide range of aviation users to take account of their varied needs. The changes aim to re-design the airspace around Exeter Airport and introduce new rules, maintaining safety for all air users and allowing for more efficient handling of aircraft. This could help achieve more continuous descents and climbs for inbound and outbound commercial aircraft, for example, reducing noise for local communities and cutting down on fuel consumption and emissions.

The Airspace Change Proposal was submitted to the CAA for consideration on 15th December 2017. A regulatory decision is not expected before April 2018. The proposal submitted is available via the link below.
