Change in shading of Manchester Low Level Route (Class D) on CAA VFR charts

To coincide with the release of Edition 48 of the 1:500,000 Southern England & Wales VFR chart on 24 March 2022, the shading of that portion of the Manchester CTR designated as the Manchester Low Level Route has changed to better reflect its status as Class D airspace with special conditions for its use.

Those conditions allow aircraft to operate VFR within the Manchester Low Level Corridor, day or night, without a specific ATC clearance to do so provided they comply with the conditions detailed in AD 2.22 of the Manchester entry in the UK AIP.

A list of chart stockists is available from the NATS website.
