Birmingham Airport commences a series of Airspace Change Consultation Roadshows

Birmingham Airport has commenced a series of Roadshows to explain the proposed
changes to its flight paths linked to the opening of the runway extension in 2014

As the runway will be extended further south, there will be a change to the routeing
of aircraft after taking-off to the south off Runway 15 while aircraft landing from the
south on Runway 33 will be approximately 51 feet lower on their final approach due
to aircraft touching down earlier on the extended runway

explain the airspace changes to a resident in Catherine de Barnes
The Airport is consulting over a three month period - the new routes of the flight
paths have been designed using the latest criteria to allow aircraft to fly more
precisely than ever and are a legal requirement set out by the CAA

To give local people an opportunity to find out more about the proposed airspace
changes, the Airport is holding a series of roadshows in Catherine-de-Barnes,
Barston, Eastcote, Meriden, Berkswell, Hampton-in-Arden, Marston Green,
Bickenhill, Balsall Common, Knowle and Sheldon
