Project Catara

Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether an Airspace Study has been completed in connection with Project Catara. (307118)

The airspace issues relating to Project Catara were considered as part of the Strategic Review of RAF Brize Norton, RAF Lyneham and RAF St. Mawgan, the primary outcome of which was a decision to collocate air transport assets at RAF Brize Norton. It was considered that airspace implications did not preclude such a move.

However, consideration of potential airspace issues relating to the expansion of RAF Brize Norton’s role remains ongoing.
