Air Traffic Services Ltd – which provide air traffic control for Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield – has created a VFR Airspace Transit Guide for GA pilots flying around these airfields.

There is a huge amount of GA activity into and around both of these airports, and each has suffered (and continues to suffer) more than its fair share of airspace infringements. In an attempt to highlight the main visual features, and to assist pilots in navigating around these areas more successfully, the guides have been produced – by the Air Traffic Controllers themselves!

It is hoped that GA pilots in these parts of the country will take the time to look at the guides and contribute towards a reduction in airspace infringements, meaning safer flying for everyone.

The guides are live documents, which will be updated and amended as necessary, and have been designed to be tablet-friendly for convenience.

The guides are located at:
