Edinburgh ATC Visit: October 20th 2012
Drew
Visit ATC day is back


The ever popular Visit ATC Day will once again take place this Autumn, giving UK pilots the opportunity to view proceedings at Air Traffic Control units around the country. The Airspace & Safety Initiative (ASI) which helps co-ordinate the event has now released details of this yearís participating units. Pilots curious to see life from an air traffic controllerís perspective are encouraged to sign up for a tour at their nearest unit during October and November.

The scheme, now in its fourth year, intends to increase the mutual understanding of pilots and controllers. All the visits will require prior registration and are open only to holders of pilot licences (NPPL, PPL, BGA certificate etc and student pilots). Those attending will be required to show their licence or evidence that they are learning to fly. Pilots who have not pre-registered or cannot produce their licence or evidence on the day unfortunately will not be admitted.

ATC units already confirmed include Swanwick, Prestwick, Manchester, Edinburgh, Farnborough, Bristol, Birmingham, Belfast and Norwich.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. All the events are free of charge.

The nearest ATC event is Edinburgh: If you want to attend the Edinburgh ATC - please click on the link below and add your details and time that you want to attend.

Great, thanks for the link Drew. I see Birmingham is fully booked but still space on the Bristol visit so I'll see if I can get on that trip:-)

Bristol is a really good Airport to visit - good viewing gallery too for aviators.

Yeah Drew, no worries I'm sure I'd be able to do that for you.

There are cheap flight to Bristol and Belfast, around £55 for a return flight from Edinburgh so was thinking of booking.
