Plans to establish a controlled airspace structure in the vicinity of Norwich International airport have been approved by the UK Civil Aviation Authority.

The CAA said that the new airspace classification will include a control zone (CTR) and a control area (CTA), to protect arriving and departing aircraft.

Under the current operation of the Class G uncontrolled airspace, air traffic control are frequently required to re-route arriving aircraft or delay departing traffic to ensure the safety of all airspace users due to lack of information about other aircraft operating in the area.

The CAA said: "Aircraft flying VFR wishing to access the new controlled airspace will need to seek clearance from Norwich ATC."
