Review of Irish Airspace Proposals Consultation

The IAA will host an online briefing session using Microsoft teams next Wednesday, July 28th from 1500-1630. This briefing session is an opportunity to clarify the Review of Irish Airspace Proposals as outlined in the consultation documentation.

Briefing Session Agenda:

  • Overview
  • Discussion
  • Next steps

A link to the Teams Meeting can be found HERE.

There has been widespread disappointment from the General Aviation community at the Irish Airspace Review which was published last week by the IAA. Instead of a reduction in controlled airspace in the country, all of the control zones at the regional airports will be getting bigger with the ‘stubs’ on each approach doubling in size.

The review can be read here. In total there were 33 submissions that contained a total of 276 comments, 99% of which were rejected by the IAA. The comments can be accessed by clicking here.
