The Airspace Change Organising Group (ACOG) has been set up as part of the UK’s Airspace Modernisation Strategy (AMS) to coordinate and support the delivery of transformational airspace change across the UK.
ACOG’s main purpose is to coordinate the implementation of two major airspace change programmes which form part of the AMS – known as FASI South and FASI North and to deliver an airspace masterplan, a high-level implementation plan that identifies which individual, but interdependent, airspace design changes need to be developed to deliver the range of benefits that modernisation will bring.
To provide ATM expertise to the ACOG team to ensure the successful delivery of the UK Airspace Change Programme. To lead the creation of bespoke data and analytical work packages to support the development of the airspace change masterplan, ensuring that the output is accepted by AMS co-sponsors.
- Provide expert scientific or technical advice, analysis and data interpretation in support of the production of the UK airspace masterplan, a key ACOG deliverable.
- Manage and complete analytical tasks, ensuring delivery within agreed timescales and estimated effort, to the required quality in line with masterplan requirements. This will include carrying out or reviewing scientific, technical or data analysis and drawing technical conclusions.
- Engage and build strong and effective relationships with specialists from across the industry, regulator, and academia. Use these relationships to develop and apply appropriate methodologies to deliver data and analysis, integrating the outputs to ensure that the masterplan meets the requirements outlined by the DfT and CAA.
- Provide technical support and guidance to the wider ACOG team with the provision of data and analysis to help achieve ACOG’s objectives.
- Anticipate and solve routine and non-routine technical problems. Where necessary pinpointing the root cause of a broad range of complex problems, providing effective innovative solutions.

We celebrate the diversity of our colleagues. We thrive because we are all brilliantly different yet united in our passion to advance aviation and keep the skies safe. For more information on our commitment to diversity and inclusion, please see our website.
We have adopted an agile working initiative this will help our teams across the business to be able to work remotely and/or on-site giving greater flexibility. If there is a requirement to come on site or work on client sites across the UK this will be on a needs basis and in discussion.
