Cyrrus is proud to support the modernisation of flight procedures at Durham Tees Valley Airport. The team will undertake the airspace change for the introduction of satellite-based aRea Navigation (RNAV) Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs) at the Airport.

The UK Future Airspace Strategy (FAS), championed by the CAA, advocates the introduction of such Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) procedures to complement and ultimately replace the conventional procedures which rely on older, ground-based, navigation installations. Due to the evolving nature of the UK’s navigation infrastructure, and the age of some of the associated equipment, the proposed RNAV IAPs at Durham Tees Valley Airport will provide a welcome redundancy.

The introduction of these procedures comes at an exciting time for the Airport as it recently announced the introduction of a new airline, Loganair, which will be operating flights to Aberdeen and Norwich from October this year. There is also significant investment ongoing in enhancing the terminal facilities.

Speaking about the project, Rob Cooke, Operations Director at Durham Tees Valley Airport said;

“Having worked with Cyrrus on a number of projects before, we know that they can and will deliver a most professional and cost-effective solution for the introduction of these procedures. We look forward to working with the Cyrrus Team to deliver a successful outcome to this project.”
