• Sponsor: London Southend Airport (LSA)

    The implementation will consist of 2 phases. The first phase will introduce the straight-in approach segments only; there will be no difference from the flight paths of aircraft on current conventional approaches. The second phase will introduce the full procedures and holds from the initial approach fixes; this phase will be subject to the full airspace change process.
