Inverness Airspace Change Consultation

ATC Sunrise

Proposal to Establish Controlled Airspace surrounding Inverness Airport

At Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (HIAL) we are committed to maintaining the safe and efficient operation of our airports and we feel it appropriate to sponsor an airspace change proposal with the intention of creating a controlled airspace, a Control Zone (CTR) and Control Area (CTA), surrounding Inverness Airport. Whilst HIAL is sponsoring the change proposal, Osprey Consulting Services Limited (Osprey CSL) has been contracted to provide assistance in the airspace design and consultation. In accordance with CAP 724 (Airspace Charter), the CAA Safety and Airspace Regulation Group (SARG) will provide regulatory assessment of the airspace change proposal and will make the decision on proposal implementation.
