Policy for the Establishment of Visual Reference Points (VRPs)

The CAA has published policy and guidance regarding the establishment and use of VRPs, and the process to be followed when establishing or disestablishing them.  It replaces Aeronautical Information Circular Y 006/2013 dated 21 February 2013.

VRPs are to be established in accordance with the CAA’s Airspace Change Process (CAP 1616).  VRPs are categorized as Level 0 airspace changes, so sponsors should follow the Level 0 process and provide the required VRP-specific information in their DAP1916 submissions.
