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.
A link to LSA's progress with this ACP is available here.
Following LSA’s decision to pause this ACP due to COVID-19, the airport has now ‘unpaused’ the process and is currently working through Stage 1B of CAP 1616. LSA has appointed Cyrrus to support us with the development of the ACP.
During the Design Principles step, the sponsor (LSA) develops the principles which will underpin their proposed options for the change. The design principles encompass the safety, environmental and operational criteria and strategic policy objectives that the change sponsor aims for in developing the airspace change proposal. They are developed through engagement with stakeholders and form a qualitative structure against which design options can be evaluated.
More information will be published on this webpage when available.
