Step 1b : Design Principles - This step has been started

During the Design Principles step, the sponsor 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. Early engagement with stakeholders, optionally facilitated by a third party, may help to avoid disagreement later in the process.

Purpose of this change

The Department for Transport (DfT) has stated that in order to accommodate forecast growth in the aviation sector out to 2030, significant modernisation of the airspace in the UK, specifically in the South of the London Flight Information Region (FIR), is required. The plan to modernise the airspace across Southern England is being conducted under a single multi-stakeholder programme known as Future Airspace Strategy Implementation South (FASI-S). As part of this programme, 16 airports located within the Southern part of the UK, including Cardiff Airport (CWL), have been invited to participate in the FASI-S programme and undertake individual Airspace Changes in support of the overarching FASI-S programme and the CAA’s wider strategy for UK airspace modernisation.

Potentially Affected Area

This is the area which may be affected by this airspace change depending on its development. This area may change as the proposal is developed.
