If a request is made for the Secretary of State to call-in an airspace change proposal, the Secretary of State may determine that the proposal should be decided by them rather than the CAA.
The Secretary of State must be satisfied that one of any three call-in criteria apply. These criteria are that the proposed change:
When the CAA has received a call-in request, we will provide an assessment to the Secretary of State as to whether the proposal meets one or more of these call-in criteria. The Secretary of State has provided the CAA with guidance on the meaning of these criteria. Anyone can ask the Secretary of State to call-in a proposal, but even if an airspace change proposal meets the criteria, there is no obligation on the Secretary of State to agree to call-in the proposal.
However, the Secretary of State may not determine that the proposal will be decided by them if the proposed change is:
A call-in request should be submitted in writing within four weeks of the CAA indicating on its website the date that the Sponsor’s formal airspace change proposal has been received by the CAA by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
A call-in request should be submitted via the airspace change portal within four weeks of the CAA indicating on the portal the date that the Sponsor’s formal airspace change proposal has been received by the CAA In either case, requests made outside of that four-week window will not be considered.
In response to the request, the above criteria are assessed to determine whether the proposal is eligible to be called-in. The Secretary of State decides whether the proposal is eligible to be called-in and whether it will be called in, and aims to do so within eight weeks of the proposal being submitted.
