PUBLIC CONSULTATION - RNAV IMPLEMENTATION

Carlisle Airport is conducting a Public Consultation concerning the introduction of new Instrument Flight Procedures.  Carlisle Airport is making improvements to the infrastructure and procedures utilising updated technology in order to provide more choice for its existing users.  This involves developing new arrival routes for aircraft using Runways 07 and 25 (these will be renamed Runways 06 and 24 respectively following the infrastructure work to reflect changes in magnetic variation).  New arrival procedures known as PinS (derived from Point in Space) are proposed for use by helicopters only for Runways 01 and 19.  These are non-precision approaches that will provide guidance for helicopters to position within the Aerodrome Traffic Zone (ATZ), and continue for a visual approach to land.  This consultation concerns the new procedures which will use Global Positioning Satellite technology, similar to that that used within car navigation systems, to guide aircraft on to the final approach, rather than conventional navigational aids that use transmitted beams.  We have included the details of the existing procedures, and the new ones to convey how we intend to utilise both the existing procedures, and if successful, the new procedures known as RNAV (derived from aRea NAVigation).  Carlisle Airport is not proposing any change to the classification of airspace within this project. 

Carlisle Airport is committed to ensuring that anyone who feels that they may be affected by the proposed new routes should have an opportunity to view the proposed changes and have the chance to comment on them.  Full details of how to respond are contained within the document that you can access by following the link below.  Carlisle Airport welcomes feedback from both aviation and non-aviation stakeholders who feel that they may be affected by the proposed arrival procedures.  Equally, if you have read the document and have no comment to make, we would still like to hear from you.  All responses will be collated and analysed and will form part of the Consultation Feedback Report once the consultation period closes. 

In accordance with CAA policy, this consultation will run for 12 weeks: the period commences Thursday 4th January 2018 and will close on Thursday 29th March 2018.  Carlisle Airport will be holding public meetings during the consultation period; details of the meetings will be published on this website.  We urge interested parties to check this website regularly since any additional news will be published here. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our Consultation Document; should you have any comments to make or questions concerning the proposed changes, please send an email to : This email address is being protected from spambots.
