AFPEx – FLIGHT PLANS

NATS who operate the AFPEx system are adamant, despite our limited use of the system, that we are commercial users and must pay £1995 per annum for the privilege.  In the current economic climate this is something that we cannot afford.

With immediate effect we will no longer be able to create, file, open, close nor monitor flight plans that reference EGHS.

Whilst some may view this as a safety issue as we will no longer be aware of your ETA at the field and thus be unable to take the appropriate action when you do not arrive, the airfield is PPR and we should be aware of your impending arrival.  If you phone, text or email the airfield with your ETA we will endeavour to provide a watching brief.
