Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) are consulting on the introduction of aRea NAVigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Departure (SID) procedures and RNAV Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs). DSA (otherwise known as Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield, or RHADS) believe that the adoption of the departure procedures (SIDs) requires an additional portion of controlled airspace for procedure containment to the east of the existing airspace.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) requires a formal process to any airspace change, including the introduction of, or changes to, Instrument Flight Procedures (IFPs), including SIDs and IAPs. The formal change process is captured in the UK Civil Aviation Publication (CAP725).

The consultation closes on 15th December 2017.
