Earlier Info - National Airspace and Air Navigation Plan

Progress Update

For all who participated in the consultation on the Civil Aviation Authority’s draft National Airspace and Air Navigation Plan, thank you for your feedback.

The written responses we received, and the feedback from the draft Plan workshops around the country, highlighted several important issues, including:

  • General support for the move to a more modern approach to air navigation in New Zealand.
  • The need for the Plan and its subsequent implementation to include mechanisms to smooth the transition from radar to ADS-B surveillance for the general aviation sector.
  • A keen interest in ongoing consultation and discussion between the CAA and the aviation sector.

These, and all other points raised in the consultation process have been used by the CAA in the development of the Plan. This document will be released after Cabinet approval.
