However, the fixed wing never use them, and the helicopters couldn’t use them that often because when you go IFR you block the whole corridor in the absence of radar for separation, so the ‘trial’ essentially ended and needed to be restarted before approval is granted. I’m not sure whether it has restarted.

St Mary’s just has a trusty old NDB.

Thats confirmed then, OK until the CAA get involved!

Whats an NDB?
