Airway N601: Revision to Controlling Authority
NATS Terminal Control (TC) Midlands Sectors currently share access to two volumes of Class C airspace with the Military to the east of route N601, in the vicinity of East Midlands Airport and RAF Wittering. A schedule of open and closed times dictates when both parties can access this airspace.
Prompted by a lack of use of the airspace by the military and the knowledge that civil aircraft will benefit from its extended use, this proposal intends to make NATS the sole controlling authority, with permanent (H24) access to these Class C airspace volumes, for civil air traffic.
