Step 2a : Develop & Assess

This step has been started

During the Options Development Step, the change sponsor develops one or more design options that address the Statement of Need and align with the defined design principles.

Purpose of this change

This airspace change proposal will make changes to the Manchester Terminal Manoeuvring Area (MTMA) airspace, STARs and ATS route network. The proposed changes will interface with SIDs and arrival transitions serving Manchester and East Midlands airports. Manchester and East Midlands airports are currently in the process of proposing changes to their SIDs/ arrival transitions. The changes proposed to the MTMA by this ACP will be coordinated with, and will complement, the airports’ proposals.

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.

CAA response to Step 2a

11/06/2021: The CAA is satisfied with the Change Sponsor's assessment of the contextual consideration and agrees the proposal can resume. However, until iteration two of the airspace change Masterplan, including the associated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport, as co-sponsors of airspace modernisation, no indicative timeline can be agreed by the CAA for this airspace change proposal. It is anticipated that the Develop & Assess Gateway for this ACP will not be before Q1 2022.
