Started on 15 October, the London Airspace Consultation (LAC) will run until January 21, focusing on planned airspace alterations over southern England as well as to help with the upgradation of the UK s airspace structure. LAC seeks at receiving local feedback on Gatwick’s airspace motorway network , and to modernise airspace with new technology. Head of corporate responsibility at Gatwick, Tom Denton, said, Gatwick is committed to leading the way in terms of airspace innovation and operation, which is why we were so keen to be the first major UK airport to work with NATS to fully review and consult on our airspace. This consultation is said to be part of a wider programme of proposed changes to deliver the UK s Future Airspace Strategy developed by the Civil Aviation Authority with the support of the aviation industry. Denton added, This project gives us an opportunity to further reduce the number of people affected by noise, as well as focus on further reducing Co2 emissions and air quality impacts. Therefore this is an important time for local people and those who live within our flight paths, who now have a once in a lifetime opportunity to give their feedback and influence the future of our airspace. Upon completion, outcomes of the consultation will be made available online for stakeholders and the public to view and give their opinions. (c) 2013 Euclid Infotech Pvt. Ltd.
