Zooker, I imagine what you describe goes on quite a bit. We've had the London CTR heli lanes DVD, a pictoral guide to the reviesed LHR helicopter crossing procedures that we got AIS to host on their website, and, although a different target audience, we do a spcific pictoral guide to LHR ops for each new entrant airline with lots of info for them to pass down to their crews.

I seem to recall transiting the CTR over the EME at 5000ft southbound in the Luscombe Spiney, on one mega trip - happy days!

Yep! We were fortunate the contrails didn't give us away. The trips in later years were usually to Sherburn-in-your-hat for a fry-up at Sue's cafe. Almost as good as you'll remember from the epic Wellsbourne breakfast diversion. An impacted bowel and a bottomless teapot, surely the true purpose of general aviation..

I'd better get my coat and let this thread get back on track.....

"EMA handles over 4.6 million passengers per year and is the UK’s number one pure freight airport." Do they bubble wrap and parcel up the passengers?

And I got one package that I'm sure came through NX which was contaminated.

I wonder whether MAG have a long-term plan to do EGNXZA from somewhere else? They're a fairly cost-concious outfit, after all.

Their 2 busiest units have contracts with NATS, but the 2 smaller ones are done 'in-house'. Allegedly, MAG are interested in recent events at EGBB, EGKK and EGPH, and, talking to one of their ops-managers last year indicated that they are also very interested in the potential of r-TWR technology.

I wouldn't be surprised to see all the ATC operations eventually transferred to a 'bunker' in Manchester Town Hall.

Bring them all into their new tower at Manchester? With NATS or an in-house company you reckon?

Flew out of there for 15 years and I've been in ATC for 27 years. Always got a professional and thorough service, even being put into the ILS pattern when a BMA DC9 or 737 was steaming in. Can't praise them high enough. 👍🏻

GASA,

I think that to get all 4 approach units, plus 4 sets of wrap-around, high-definition VCR screens in, would require quite a sizeable extension to the building at the base of the new EGCC tower.

The Town Hall is a much better option, as it will have a canteen, and probably many other facilities enjoyed by its present employees. PLUS, the ATCOs based there will be able to travel to work on the tram, in keeping with both Manchester Council and MAG's 'sustainable transport' agendas.
