Consultations

If someone, usually an airport or air traffic control provider, wants to request a permanent change to the UK airspace structure, they must, by law, submit an airspace change proposal to the CAA and consult all the relevant stakeholders, GATCO being one of them. At this point in time, GATCO is working on the following consultations and welcomes feedback from members by emailing consultations (at) gatco (dot) org:
