Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Permanent change to the notified airspace design, and the change level is 2C. The detailed process requirements are published in Part 1 of CAP 1616.

Situated in the far South-West, the Land's End Transit Corridor (LETC) is an established block of airspace (Surface to 4,000ft altitude) linking Land’s End Airport to the Isles of Scilly. The Corridor is situated in Class G airspace and within the RNAS Culdrose AIAA. The LETC is used predominantly by scheduled passenger-carrying flights - both fixed-wing and, from March 2020, rotary aircraft. In addition, it is used by military/SAR/Helimed/Trinity House helicopters, General Aviation flights and others. Aircraft using the LETC becomes funnelled within a very narrow lateral and vertical area of airspace. To provide increased protection for all users, and in particular, the scheduled public transport flights - some of which may be conducting IFR RNAV approaches - a need for an airspace change was identified. In summary, the purpose of this ACP is to consider possible airspace solutions that could provide mitigation to the current unknown traffic environment within the 'LETC'.
