Consultation description

The Air Navigation Order (ANO) forms the legal foundation for almost all areas of civil aviation that are still regulated at national level.

We are undertaking a project with the Department for Transport to review all aspects of the ANO that could impact on a GA activity.

The review was initiated to ensure that:

  • the ANO is compatible with our new approach to GA
  • our approach to GA regulation is examined in a holistic manner

This consultation document is the output of the first phase of the review. It includes a package of broad concepts and options in a thematic format. It’s addressed primarily to the GA community, to gather views on the proposals.

Once comments have been received, the proposals will be refined and presented in a more detailed format for final consultation in autumn 2015. Implementation of the new ANO will take place in autumn 2016.
