Hmm so the new quarter mil, used by many microlighters and glider pilots won't be out until well after the new airspace is active.
There's only one 'F' in Fulham

For these, Mr Turner was advocating routing the Bagshot Gap (not a gap any longer), and arriving at 1900' just north of Guildford, just below the base of the new eastern CTA1 at 2000. His argument was that there was then just 3 miles of CAS to cross. Of course, this creates minimum conflict for him, so such routings will be the easiest to clear, but this is quite a lot less safe in the event of engine failure. And with 'take two', it's not 1900', it's 1800', which is worse - and for noise too, which they said played a significant part in the planning of the new CAS.
