Why is this happening? Why can’t you leave things as they are?

Part A of the consultation document available on this website describes how this change is part of the Future Airspace Strategy (FAS), a programme of development led by the CAA and supported by the aviation industry and Government.  FAS is necessary to ensure the South East has an airspace system that can support the UK economy whilst minimising the impact on the environment.  The documentation also describes how European legislation that will force the UK to upgrade the airspace system in order to utilise modern technology, is expected by 2020.  Leaving the airspace unchanged is not an option.
