CAA Consultation on Electronic Conspicuity

This consultation was opened on 18 March and will close on 25 May 2019.

ARPAS-UK encourages all its members to complete the consultation. We will be responding as an organisation too.



Electronic conspicuity (EC) is one of the most important airspace modernisation initiatives because of its potential to unlock safety benefits and save lives by reducing the likelihood of infringements and mid-air collisions.

By ensuring the full adoption of EC solutions in targeted blocks of airspace to enhance situational awareness, the aviation sector can transform its approach to integrating different types of operation and lay the foundations for new users like unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to operate far more extensively than they do today.

Full adoption means 100% of users operating in a designated block of can be detected electronically to the required levels of accuracy and reliability.


Please read the CAA’s information on the topic and follow instructions on how to respond.

Thank you.
