The purpose of the PIR is for the CAA, as the independent regulator, to assess whether the change has delivered the anticipated impacts and benefits set out in the original airspace change proposal and decision, and if not to ascertain why and determine the most appropriate course of action.

PIR initiation date
The CAA is aiming to complete the PIR of Modules A, D and B by Christmas 2017 and will publish the results when that work is complete. Thereafter, the CAA will complete the PIR of Modules C and E, after which we will publish the final outcome when that work is complete.
As advised in the previous update, as the PIR progressed, it had identified some areas that needed to be reviewed in more detail. It is important that we carefully consider all the benefits and impacts of the original decision as part of the PIR process. Our airspace team is also dealing with several other significant pieces of work and is having to balance that workload while ensuring that we carefully consider all the benefits and impacts of the original decision as part of the PIR process. This has impacted the timescale in which we will be able to complete the review and publish our decision.
It is difficult to provide a definitive timeline as to when this work will be completed, as we can’t prejudge the outcome of our ongoing work. However, subject to no other areas being identified as requiring further review, we hope to have completed the PIR for Modules A, B and D during June 2018.
