Hence the classic caveat "At your discretion" ? Much used at the Jurby airshows!
For the unmanned airfields it doesn't matter what you do because ATC will not get involved - it becomes your choice. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Paul Reynolds Sent: 17 July 2007 18:47 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: PCI Wednesday 18th Given the close proximity of the strips, I think we also need to plan a contingency for the inevitable "server" lag. For most of the session we should all be withn the 40 mile range and that will probably cause a significant build up for some flyers. Do we: a) fly what we see - ie. if an aircraft is on finals / take-off ahead of us we go around. or b) fly what we know is current. ie. controllers know the aircraft has cleared the airspace but we are stil seeing it. My thoughts are for a combination. If the aircraft seen is likely to obstruct you in anyway, go around, otherwise ignore it.

After some thought I suggest that the three important airfields to man are St Maartens, St Barts and St Kitts. Frank has the first so I'd like volunteers for St Barts and St Kitts. <g> The original plan to double up isn't feasible except for maybe the St Kitts/Nevis pair. For Saba, St Eustatius and maybe Nevis they will be unmanned but I'll provide traffic information from TTZP (Piarco FIR). We can fine tune this on the night. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of franklyn fisher Sent: 17 July 2007 13:49 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] PCI Wednesday 18th Been very quite for this, I assume that after everyone has checked out their scenery, and they want to do the session. Unless otherwise, I will be at TNCM_APP Princess Julianna. Frank F
