Updated commercial routes
By changing the routes for commercial air traffic as it arrives and leaves airports there is the potential to free controlled airspace for other users. FAS will mean the implementation of new communications technologies to grant Class G users access to this airspace more easily.
Removing permanent restrictions
Flexible Use of Airspace will be introduced to allow more restricted airspace to be made available when not in use. For example, airspace currently restricted for use in military training by the Ministry of Defence could be available for others when not in MoD use. Find out about the benefits to the environment.
