Been looking at FR24 on and off today. Obviously very quiet today except at EGPC. It looks like EGPC has saved some of the helicopter flights that may have gone further north. HIAL did say they had special procedures for EGPC. I have no problem with that, I just hope that they were not “bending” the rules :-)

EGPC (Wick) is ATC or AFIS 'in emergency' so they were probably operating AFIS.

Really closed, or just no ATC?

HIAL are the 'aerodrome authority'.
If they wish to close an airport because not ATC is available it's up to them, they have the 'right' to do so.
