Following the security checks the group will assemble in the 'Viewing Room', which enables a good overview of the main air traffic control units going through their normal control operations.
Since our first visit, the main control unit has been split into two separate units, one for ‘local’ traffic and the other for ‘long range’ traffic.
For operational safety reasons, the NATS have decided that only four visitors can be allowed in each of the operations rooms during the visit.
The whole group will be able to visit other parts of the facility which are not subject to these tight restrictions.
Identification: It will be necessary to have one’s passport or a new-style driving licence in order to gain entry.
Maximum party size: 12 Timings will be provided to those booked on the tour. This visit has been organised by Peter Murden. Cost £3 (lunch not provided).
