What about military/light aircraft/helicopter flights over my house?

This proposal is focussed on the controlled airspace managed by NATS and Gatwick Airport – military, light aircraft, helicopters and other general aviation normally utilises uncontrolled airspace, which is beyond the airspace controlled by NATS.

Part G of the consultation document describes how the proposal will have an effect on a small number of aircraft that operate in uncontrolled airspace; however, apart from these exceptions, we do not expect the proposal to affect the way in which aircraft utilise uncontrolled airspace.
