Aldergrove TMA

At the recent NATS ATC forum in the Maldron Hotel the new changes to the Aldergrove TMA were discussed. In summary  the proposal is that the airspace dimensions will not change but the class E will change to class D.

It is likely this change will go ahead and timed to coincide with the new 1/500,000 Chart publication for Northern Ireland in April 2016. This won’t affect most airspace users especially if flying under 2000’ and equipped with radio.  Public comments are still welcome by the CAA in writing or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
