Following the analysis of the feedback received in the feedback exercise at the beginning of this year, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has now published the final version of it post implementation review (PIR) of Gatwick Airport Limited’s Route 4 RNAV-1 SID Airspace Change Proposal.
As a result of our analysis, the CAA has concluded that the implemented ACP is not a satisfactory replication of the Route 4 conventional departure route and it does not meet the ACP’s original stated aim. This means that Route 4’s RNAV-1 SID will be de-notified and removed from the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP). As a result aircraft will be required to fly the 2012 conventional SID which was re-instated on 12 September 2019.
The final report is available to view on our website.
