Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Permanent change to the notified airspace design, and the change level is 1. The detailed process requirements are published in Part 1 of CAP 1616.

It is intended that this slightly steeper suite approaches will replace the existing RNAV Z procedures but will not lead to any proposed changes of the existing ILS. There will also be no changes to where aircraft fly laterally so tracks over the ground will remain as they are today.

The operational trials have demonstrated that a slightly steeper approach has a measurable noise benefit to those under

the final approach path owing to the fact that aircraft remain higher for longer. As part of the analysis of the trials, the data

shows that there is no measurable detrimental impact to other key environmental metrics which include CDA, landing gear

deployment, increased risk of go-arounds and other key metrics which can be viewed in the end of trial reports.
