      Prior to the above date, visual approaches to runway 24 are not permitted at night where an alternative approach is available. From the above date, this restriction no longer applies, so long as pilots comply with other noise abatement restrictions pertaining to visual approaches.

      As part of a project designed to restructure airspace in the London Worthing sectors, a number of changes occur on the effective date. This is part of the Swanwick Airspace Improvement Programme (SAIP). The majority of these changes are made to provide shorter routes for suitably equipped aircraft.
       
      A number of new RNAV 1 Airways are introduced from Ireland and France, terminating in the London Worthing Sectors.
      New RNAV 1 STARs are introduced for London/Heathrow, London/Gatwick, London/Luton, London/Stansted, Cambridge and Northolt.
      Note these STARs are named following the ICAO standards, after the first waypoint rather than the last waypoint as is typical in the UK.
       
      Is it expected for this to be a multi-year project with similar changes planned in the coming months.
       
      There is no specific documentation changes to be made in association with these changes - this forum is the only notification for these changes.

      The UK sector file is updated to reflect these changes, other documentation will be forthcoming in a future update.
