From what Iíve heard about it the real Ďbenefití will be to have less controllers handling more traffic. With the aircraft on standardised routes the controller can focus more on the initial order...

Does the cargo make a lot of money? Would it be worth GLA building an extension just for some cargo flights? Extending a runway is very expensive and with engines getting better all the time a longer...

All of these new technologies and developments are very exciting but as a controller at a busy unit, not Heathrow or Gatwick, my unit has not seen any advancements at all. So I've not been overly...

Differing from GLA, United and others probably cannot pull any flights from EDI because they have to fight off Norwegian's new services. Although, this is only IMHO, nothing has been announced...

I completely agree. What airport isn't a shopping mall these days? And the 'pile em high' strategy is basically a different way of saying 'being a successful airport'

I've always had good experiences flying from EDI but I only fly every other month so maybe I've just been lucky.

I think the main problem with all this is putting the virtual tower in swanwick. What happens when London city want to chuck nats? Can they just reroute the feed somewhere else and keep on working?

EGLC approach is done from TC so I suppose nats could try to move them there and get them dual valid. Maybe then train the approach controllers to do tower, more efficient use of staff. That would...

They won't get band 5 money for nothing. I bet they either stay on their current band or they get band 5 if they volunteer to validate on a radar sector at TC. I say volunteer because I'm not sure if...

All their airports are short staffed. Also not that many people want to go to Heathrow, either because they don't want to work there or they don't want to live in London. I'm not trying to have a go...
