PC Route Free Airspace

NATS is proposing changes to upper airspace (FL255 and above) in the Scottish UIR and a portion of Irish Airspace where ATS is delegated to Prestwick Centre (Donegal Fillet). The objective of these changes is to remove all ATS routes and establish a portion of the airspace as “Route Free Airspace” (RFA). This will enable aircraft to be able to flight plan and fly direct from point to point.
