COP 26 closes huge area of Scotland’s airspace

A large chunk of Scotland’s airspace will be closed to General Aviation during the COP 26 climate conference in Glasgow, being held from 30 October to 13 November.

A mauve Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) has been issued detailing the restricted airspace.

It covers an area stretching from Turnberry to Leuchars (south-west to north-east), and all of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The AIC makes it clear that “unauthorised flight into this restricted airspace is FORBIDDEN [their caps].

“Deviation from the rules for entry will result in INTERCEPTION.”

Leaders from across the world are expected to fly in for the Conference of the Parties (COP) 26th Summit being held at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).

Full details on AIC M 091/2021 on the NATS AIS website.
