Let's face it: The FAA pushes more traffic, more types of traffic, has less incidents per flight hour and at less cost per flight hour. The environment is complex but flight safety and efficiency...

At 7500ft actually which what I use to cruise over New York.

So they made most of UK airspace Class A, extremely complex, inaccessible to VFR flights and boundaries hard to understand.

And now they are having a go at the pilots?

Just because you believe I have poor appreciation of the big picture is not sufficient basis to unreasonably and permanently deny access to airspace.

So we have 40x more landmass but 30x more flight hours. So 1.33x more landmass per flight hour. But we also have 4x less accidents per hour flown.

If we had 1.33x less landmass will we have the...

Are you implying we are dangerous?

Look at the stats yourself. We, the clockwork mice in the USA, have 30x more flight hours flown than in the UK and definitely not 30x more accidents.

A good move in the right direction by NATS but up to 2500ft only.

There's still the other most significant chunk of airspace from 2500ft upwards that you've grabbed away from us.

Nah. You'd have a heart attack by letting us VFR 'clockwork mice' into your jealously guarded Class A airspace from the ground up to FL195.

So am I, but I thought 25 pounds was quite reasonable in the UK given you guys don't fund your airports from public money.

Shall I tell you the charges for a 152 at Shoreham and Stanstead? :}

Excuse me, but if airports and airspace is being used to kick out light airplanes then this certainly ain't 'minor' in any shape or form.

You either make airspace controlled so you can control the traffic.
If the airspace is uncontrolled you have no authority over it.
