As part of coordinating the airspace change programme and developing the Masterplan, ACOG will be engaging a range of stakeholders throughout each iteration, including:
- Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), including the NATS team that is tasked with redesigning the UK’s medium level airspace network above 7000ft and the European ANSPs that border our airspace.
- Airports that are modernising and upgrading their arrival and departure routes below 7000ft and must ensure that they are aligned with neighbouring airports and connect efficiently with the network above.
- Commercial Air Transport, General Aviation and Military users that operate in the airspace and may need to adopt new technologies and procedures as part of the airspace change programme.
- New airspace user groups like drones and commercial space flights that are expected to demand greater access to the airspace in the future and will need to integrate with conventional users safely and efficiently.
- Passengers, consumers, and companies that rely on air transport for leisure and business and convert aviation products and services into a valuable driver for economic growth and global connectivity.
- Interest groups, local communities and their elected representatives that are concerned about the external impacts of airspace modernisation, especially aircraft noise, emissions, and the effects on local air quality.
