AMENDMENT 17 TO THE 1997 LIST (AL 17/97)

DATED 17th MARCH 2014

Definitive List. The definitive BGA list including the latest updates and any `Stop Press' items can be accessed through a link from the BGA web site:

The list is held at: and can be accessed directly through this web reference.

Responsibilities. The BGA has prepared this data in good faith but takes no responsibility for its accuracy or how it is used, for instance use by pilots in airborne navigation systems. Users are advised to check such data, in particular for proximity to other air activities or areas with airspace restrictions.

Airspace. Points with airspace considerations have the hash (#) annotation. A single hash # is a warning about proximity to airspace rather than the point being in an airfield ATZ or other zone for a notified activity. Points with a double hash ## should only be approached and over-flown if the organisation responsible for the airspace concerned has been contacted and the use of the point has been positively agreed for the flight concerned.


Important factual changes including corrections or changes of grid refs and deletion of points that should no longer be used.

NTN Newton - Delete, No longer an airfield, now an industrial estate. Alternative BNG Bingham


This is where there is no change to Position. It is used where descriptions, road numbers or layouts have changed, or where heights ASL are being corrected because originally they were estimated rather than calculated exactly.

PEN - Pendock Change end of description from N to E, to read "1.5 NMl E of M50 J 2"
PSE - Pershore SE Change A44 to B4084 in the description
WAO - Watton No longer active, change description to: Disused airfield 1 NMl SW of village
