EU exit

Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Reference:IN-2014/174
Title:Altitude Cold Temperature Corrections
Description:International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Doc 4444 PANS-ATM currently states that ‘when necessary, the relevant minimum vectoring altitude shall include a correction for low temperature effect and it is the responsibility of the Air Traffic Services authority to provide the controller with minimum altitudes corrected for temperature effect’. UK Air Traffic Control (ATC) procedures published in CAP 493 (Manual of Air Traffic Services Part 1) do not currently specify procedures for applying such temperature corrections.

This IN supersedes IN 2013/174.
