3. The purpose of managing flexible usage of the airspace is to ensure, to as large extent as possible, the usage of the airspace elements for different users of the airspace for their temporary needs of usage of the airspace.

4. Airspace management shall be implemented in accordance with the regulation laid down in Article 2(7) of Regulation No 549/2004.

5. The airspace structure is comprised of the following elements:

5.1. air traffic control zone (CTR) - controllable airspace that is established above an aerodrome with a defined borderline on the vertical and horizontal plane from the ground surface to a defined upper border;

5.2. air traffic control area (CTA) - a controlled airspace that is established above the ground surface with a defined borderline on the vertical plane;

5.3. aerodrome air traffic terminal control area (TMA) - defined volume of airspace, established around contact points of air traffic service routes around one or several aerodromes;

6. The purpose of change of the airspace structure is to provide equal airspace usage opportunities for all airspace users, as well as to improve aircraft flight safety and efficiency.

7. Flexible airspace structure elements shall be created in the aerodrome air traffic terminal control area (TMA) so that they do not have an impact on flight trajectories existing in the aerodrome air traffic terminal control area (TMA) and do not deteriorate flight safety and efficiency.

8. It shall only be allowed to create the prohibited area (P) and restricted area (R) above objects of national significance and elevated danger, national parks, nature reserves, and locations of public events.

46. The responsible unit of Latvijas gaisa satiksme may refuse to enable the usage of a corresponding airspace element at the requested time, if it significantly affects the actual air traffic situation (for example, if it is established that the usage of the applied airspace structure element will affect the work load of the air traffic control sector or air traffic staff in a way that the usage of the applied zone may limit the possibility of efficient ensuring of air traffic flow or solving of an individual air traffic situation).

47. The responsible unit of Latvijas gaisa satiksme may request that the airspace user discontinues the usage of a corresponding airspace element, if it significantly affects the actual air traffic situation (for example, if it is established that the usage of the applied airspace structure element will affect the work load of the air traffic control sector or air traffic staff in a way that the usage of the applied zone may limit the possibility of efficient ensuring of air traffic flow or solving of an individual air traffic situation).

48. If the usage of the airspace structure element is refused or discontinued in the cases laid down in Paragraphs 46 and 47 of this Regulation, it does not give the right for the airspace user to use such airspace element outside the time allocated at the pre-tactical level.
