New more liberal rules governing lower airspace use for business and general aviation aircraft came into force in Russia on 1 November, in a historic relaxation of the country’s airspace regulations.

The new regime introduces three classes of airspace, the lower of which, so-called Class G airspace, will be open to users of private light aircraft and helicopters under the notification system.

The agency says it will also cut the number of closed no-fly areas in the country, although flights over Moscow will remain off-limits. At the same time, the government has promised to get tougher on infringements of the airspace rules by private pilots, following a string of accidents this year by negligent flyers.
