Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Temporary Danger Area (TDA), for which a scaled airspace change process applies and a change level is not applicable. The detailed process requirements are published in the Temporary Danger Area Policy Statement.

In support of the NHS response to COVID-19, we wish to apply under CAP1915 for and on behalf of University Hospitals of Morecambe

Bay NHS Foundation Trust to fly Unmanned Aerials Systems (drones) across Morecambe Bay to provide expedited delivery services between Lancaster Royal Infirmary, Furness General and Westmorland General Hospitals.

The current airspace within which we wish to establish the Temporary Danger Area is 100% Class G at the northern edge of Morecambe Bay.

We are unaware of any airspace design changes in this area.

The current prevailing air traffic situation is utilisation predominantly by General Aviation with some commercial rotary traffic and some military rotary and fixed wing.

Predominantly GA aircraft operate out of Blackpool and use the Morecambe Bay area for General Handling or Flight training.

The local geography of the area that we wish to establish a Temporary Danger Area in is coastal/tidal sands, with minimal overflight of urban

population, roads, or railway infrastructure.
