A three month trial is to be conducted to assess revised procedures for the control of VFR flights within Bristol CAS. The trial will establish a one-way flow system for VFR arrivals and departures. The trial will commence on Monday 13th May.
Entry and exit points for the trial will be as detailed below:
A one-way flow system shall apply to VFR arrivals and departures (including those to/from sites located within the Bristol ATZ) entering or leaving the Bristol CTR/CTA as follows:
- Departures via Clevedon or M5 Avon Bridge and Cheddar VRPs
- Arrivals via Clifton Suspension Bridge and Chew Valley VRPs
- Departures via Clifton Suspension Bridge and Chew Valley Lake VRPs
- Arrivals via Clevedon or M5 Avon Bridge and Cheddar VRPs
All such clearances are to include an appropriate level restriction. Entry / exit by all other VRPs requires coordination between ADC and Radar.
Departing aircraft routinely be allocated the SSR code 5070 with inbound aircraft routinely being allocated SSR code 5071.
