Open - Consultation in progress
As part of the arrangements for Met services in the UK and in accordance with ICAO Annex 3 requirements, aerodrome weather warnings are provided. This service is available to a wide range of aerodromes and currently consists of a message in plain text using a pre-defined template for each phenomenon. The CAA has developed, in conjunction with the Met Office, a proposal to revise the aerodrome weather warnings service that will continue to be provided free at the point of use.
The CAA statutory charges consultation for 2014/15 sets out the proposed amendments to the CAA Schemes of Charges which are planned to be effective as from 1 April 2014. For most of the main CAA Schemes, prices have been held at 2013/14 levels, including some price reductions. The CAA is introducing a new Scheme – Aviation Security, on which it pre-consulted industry separately concerning the proposed charging mechanisms over the six-week period to 13 September 2013.
The CAA is investigating a complaint by Aer Lingus that Heathrow Airport's structure of airport charges is unreasonably discriminatory.
The objective of this CAP is to describe a way forward which will allow wider deployment of IAPs at UK aerodromes whilst providing continuing assurance regarding acceptable levels of safety and utilising to the greatest extent possible current policy.
