Glasgow Airport has today (Monday 15 January 2018) launched a 13-week public consultation seeking feedback on proposals to modernise the airspace currently used by aircraft to fly to and from the Airport.  The proposals, developed over the last two years align with an industry-wide initiative, driven by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), known as the Future Airspace Strategy (FAS).  Mark Johnston, Operations Director at Glasgow Airport, said: “The flight paths used at Glasgow Airport have not changed for many years and, as is the case with the wider UK airspace infrastructure, they are simply no longer fit for purpose. We now need to ensure the way we manage our airspace matches the advancements that have been made in aircraft technology.”  Of Cyrrus, he said, “The professional help and guidance provided by Cyrrus in the development of the flight procedures and in the change process has been outstanding and, we are pleased to have them assist us in this major airspace change
