UK Airprox Board publishes 2008 statistics
23 July 2009

The UK Airprox Board (UKAB) published their 21st report covering statistics for all of 2008 together with findings on recorded Airprox incidents within UK airspace between July and December 2008.

During the last six months of 2008, 68 Airprox were reported and investigated, 22 fewer than the average of comparable figures recorded in each of the previous five years.

During 2008 there was a total of 155 Airprox compared with 154 in 2007. Of these, 61 involved at least one Commercial Air Transport (CAT) aircraft compared with 65 in 2007. Two of the 61 incidents were judged as risk-bearing, the lowest number recorded in the period 1999 to 2008. There were no Category A (actual risk of collision) events involving CAT aircraft recorded in 2008. (UK Airprox Board)
