Airspace design: CAA open day Tuesday 6 February

To support the implementation of our recently launched new airspace change process - Airspace Design: guidance on the regulatory process for changing airspace design including community engagement requirements (CAP1616) the CAA is hosting an open day on Tuesday 6th February. 

It will take the form of a ‘market-stall’ event, at which a number of CAA specialists will be available to discuss the requirements of the new process and answer any questions that you may have about it.  There will be a morning (10 to 1) and an afternoon (2 to 5) session and the event will take place in Conference Rooms 1 & 2, CAA House, 45-59 Kingsway, London, WC2B 6TE. 

If you would like to attend, please send an email to airspace.policy@caa.co.uk with the name and organisation (if applicable) of those attending and the session you plan to come to.
