"To lose two tower contracts could be regarded as unfortunate, to lose three, careless..."

Yes over last 18months or so NATS have lost the 3 above contracts, though the subtle difference is Gatwick and Edinburgh airports have same owner and have subcontracted to another provider. ANS a subsidery of Germany's DFS. Birmingham on the other hand have taken it in house creating its own subsidery within the larger airport infrastructure.

I suggest that you check your spelling and punctuation before applying for a job with DFS.

Isn't Netheravon AFIS rather than ATC?

nats at Netheravon? Must be the only nats AFIS unit then. nats NS & L scraping the barrel somewhat for contracts?

AFIS at Netheravon? AFIS is meant for tiddler public transport. Public Transport at Netheravon? In my day as a lift attendant there all the passengers jumped out because they hated landing in aeroplanes.

The world has gone mad...

I can't decide where this thread should be moved... I think I'm about 48.1% in favour of Spectators' Balcony, 51.9% in favour of Jet Blast...

I am 99% sure that the Belfast City contract is NATS Solutions, not NATS Ltd, is there a difference?

Only way that NATS could compete with the real world to provide AFIS is to do it either at cost or a loss leader to get the Wallop contract.
