Who is involved?
More than 20 UK airports and NATS are involved in the delivery of the national programme of airspace change that ACOG is coordinating.
Airports are responsible for designing the arrival and departure routes that support their operations from the ground to around 7000ft and the surrounding controlled airspace. They also take responsibility for the way the airspace is used and developed in this lower portion of airspace.
NATS is responsible for the controlled airspace, the route network and for the way the airspace is used and developed above 7000ft. It is also responsible for redesigning airspace above 7000ft that connects the airports’ routes with the en route network.
