Pembrokeshire County Council has launched a public consultation on a proposal to introduce an Instrument Approach Procedure at Haverfordwest Airport.
The consultation is in partnership with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and aviation consultancy Helios. The main purpose of Instrument Approach is to allow safer approaches to the airport during poor weather (e.g. low cloud base).
Currently, aircraft intending to land at Haverfordwest will abort their approach and divert to another airport if they are unable to see the runway.
This often involves diverting to Cardiff or Bristol, meaning that during the winter, commercial flights in particular, as well as some private flights, are often cancelled because they would be unable to safely return to the airport. .

The closing date for responses is Monday, 26 February, 2018.
