Future Airspace Strategy Implementation (North) – Scottish Terminal Manoeuvring Area

ID: ACP-2015-13

This proposal is for a Permanent airspace change, and is level 2A.
Created: 03 October 2018
Last updated: 17 September 2019

As a result of the decision made regarding the Edinburgh ACP – NERL paused implementation of the proposed changes contained with the ScTMA ACP until the full impact and future implementation plans of Edinburgh Airport were known. While NERL acknowledge that improvements to the ScTMA will be required to support the airports in this region, the timing of the changes needed to coincide with any planned changes by the airports to maximise benefits for the ATC network and our airline customers. Hence this ACP has been withdrawn. Once there is more clarity on how implementation of the ScTMA changes can be coordinated with all parties ACPs will be commenced to support the changes at the individual airports.
