Leeds Bradford Airport, new terminal proposal
Our aim is to inform the residents of Burley & Menston about planned changes at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA). We believe that everyone should know, or at least be aware, of these developments and how this could affect you and your community.
LBA airspace change proposals.
In December 2018, LBA submitted airspace change proposals. The objectives of the proposal were to introduce new Instrument Flight Procedures by reducing reliance on conventional navigation aids that are due to be withdrawn. These new procedures were said to broadly replicate the existing Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) and introduce new Instrument Approach Procedures that would provide an alternative approach to, and reduce the reliance on, the existing Instrument Landing System (ILS). LBA claimed that the new procedures would facilitate more efficient operations, reduce the requirement for aircraft to hold, and improve the likelihood of aircraft achieving Continuous Descent Approaches (CDAs) or Continuous Climbs (CCs). Additional airspace was required to contain the procedures in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organisation procedures and the CAA policy on containment.
The CAA did not approve ACP 2015-10. Leeds Bradford Airport have an opportunity to re-submit proposals, and have yet to consider doing so.
The CAA CAP1805 Decision is available here: CAP1805 – Leeds Bradford Airport ACP2015-10 May 2019.
