Corvera airport gets its airspace approved

Corvera airport in Murcia has had its airspace approved, by whichever government department permits such things.

Welcome to sunny Corvera, Murcia!

According to El Razón, this means that the airport has a circle of airspace dedicated to take off and landings, and this is the final step before something called calibration flights can begin. The first of these is expected to take off in the next few weeks.

The calibration flights, it seems, are designed to test the airspace limitations, make sure the airport is working, and that nobody interferes with the other airports in the region. Once passed, the paperwork is sent off to the EU and the airport is recognised at an international level as being “open”.

It’s the final safety step before a license to operate commercial flights is finally granted.

  1. people will say' Oh look! a plane full of unsuspecting tourists' They'd be better off staying at home where it'll be cheaper and they won't get ripped off by plausible sales people. I cannot understand why all tis money has been spent on this airport. Have the Spanish boffins not actually realised that there's NOT the money around anymore for most tourists to have a jolly. Will it be like Almeria airport; here they spent millions of euros and kept spending but air traffic dropped off considerably so there are now alsmost no flights to northern Europe at all.
