A lot of the regulars on the FPI network, now seem to be retired for online 
flying, I would willing resume, provided I am not sitting there looking at a 
blank screen, as Ralph does.

At the moment I am departing Manston-Glasgow.

  I guess everyone sees things in a different light and my opinion is that the 
loss of ATC coverage starts the ball rolling and pilot attendance drops as a 
result of this.

  UK ATC is only effective with at least three controllers online and ideally 
four - one for Centre and three for airfields. If we don't provide a three 
point event then it's boring for the pilots and so the count goes down. The 
loss of John has been a severe blow as he was a constant presence on all our 
sessions - an anchor for our toehold in providing good ATC. With numbers 
decaying the sessions collapse rather rapidly.

  There is a second problem in that Pilot Club are not overly enthusiastic 
about ATC. Controllers don't get any points for being online but, without them, 
the server is just a vast multiplayer session. I think this a great pity..

    The number of flyers on a Wednesday, has dwindled to a point where it is 
not viable to provide ATC cover.

    I had struggled for a while with Bones and John, until John bowed out with 
medical problems, and Bones has a lot of irons in the fire, so I have basically 
given up for now.

    The new kid on the block, FSX has taken up a lot of time, and frankly, 
until it can run on PilotClub, it is in my opinon holding PilotClub back. It 
will run on an FSHost server however.

    If you want to set up a session for Wednesday, I would be happy to join you 
in any ATC position, or if you have enough, make up the numbers in the air.

    PilotClub are signing up members every week, but you do not see them, just 
the same people show up in Servinfo, when they do.

    Sorry to sound morbid, but it could also do with the current time of the 
year, which is grabbing everyone attention.

      John Hill pointed me in the write direction yesterday. I had completely 
forgot to change the VID from the old fpi number to the new pilot club number. 
I'm now up and running so all being well I might get a chance to provide some 
ATC this Wednesday evening.

      Do you still co-ordinate on UK_ATC?

      Cheers
