FASI South (Future Airspace Strategy Implementation South)
Please see information regarding Future Airspace Strategy Implementation South below
London Southend Airport (LSA) is a stakeholder in the development of the wider UK Airspace Modernisation Strategy that is sponsored by the Department for Transport and has been developed by the CAA. Please click here for more information.
This will see a once in a lifetime opportunity to modernise airspace, in particular in the SE region of the UK, that has not had any significant changes for the last 50 years. LSA have filed an Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) to support this strategy. LSA has appointed Cyrrus to support us with the development of the ACP.
A link to LSA's progress with this ACP is available here.
Following the Stage 1B 'Design Principles' gateway submission in March 22, LSA has moved to Stage 2A, 'Options Development' of the CAP 1616 process.
During the Options Development Stage the change sponsor (LSA) develops a comprehensive list of options that address the Statement of Need and that align with the design principles from Stage 1. The change sponsor preliminarily tests these with the same stakeholders it engaged with in Step 1B to ensure that they are satisfied that the design options are aligned with the design principles and that the change sponsor has properly understood and accounted for stakeholder concerns specifically related to the design options. The change sponsor then produces a design principle evaluation that sets out how its design options have responded to the design principles.
