  TEMPORARY DANGER AREAS ENGLISH CHANNEL TEMPORARY DANGER AREA COMPLEX
1 APRIL 2020 – 30 SEPTEMBER 2020

From the 1 April 2020 through to the 30 September 2020, a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) will continue to operate out of Lydd Airport, to carry out operational flights for the purposes of Maritime Surveillance in the area of the English Channel. As the aircraft will be operating Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLoS) and has no Detect and Avoid capability a number of Temporary Dangers Areas (TDA) will be established to facilitate the safe operation over the English Channel.
The TDA complex will be made out of 6 Danger Areas to facilitate transiting and search areas of the RPAS. A chart of the area is included within the briefing document.
Only the required Danger Areas will be activated at once to allow minimal impact to other airspace users.
Due to the operational requirement, less than 24 hours’ notice may be given for the activation of the required areas of the TDA complex.
Whilst operating within the area of Lydd and the English Channel, where possible, it is requested aircraft monitor Lydd Approach in 120.705 MHz, London Centre on 121.500 MHz or London Flight Information Service on 124.600 MHz as TDA activations will be announced on these frequencies.

REQUIRED DANGER AREAS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY NOTAM
