Sections 66, 68 and 104 of the Transport Act 2000 provide the Secretary of State with powers to issue directions to the Civil Aviation Authority on how it should manage the UK’s airspace. These powers are set out in The Civil Aviation Authority (Air Navigation) Directions, the latest version of which came into force on 1 January 2018.

A copy of these directions can be found in the Air Navigation Guidance 2017 which the department published on 24 October 2017.
