Crap idea. You'll end up with endless co-ordination with controllers trying
to sort out handover points. For example does Heathrow hand over departures
to Stansted or Birmingham. If EGSS then when does he hand over to EGBB? That
way lies anarchy.
I'll run EGTT_CTR and give the evening a bit of class. <vbg>
Current bookings are therefore:
EGTT_CTR - bones
EGLL_APP - Frank
It's a good start and if everyone can confirm they will be running those
positions tonight then I will post a notice of activity in the Pilot Club

I'll take Stansted, I rather like it and know the SID's and STAR's off by
heart which helps. 

I'm not sure what people think of this suggestion but I think the newbies
might prefer it if we had just airports open, and no blanket center over the
Gives them time to receive some instruction and gather their thoughts en
route without having to worry about ATC from block to block? 

What do we think? concentrate on getting more airports open to give a
variety and leave the centers? or is that a crap idea!

The concensus seems to be to open the major airports. 

Ok by me. 

Phil wants to take Birmingham EGBB. 

I will take Heathrow EGLL 

Perhaps John would like to open Manchester EGCC or even Stansted EGSS to
give us a triangle. 

I would not mind making it our default airfields, so as to get to know them.

It does depend on traffic, on whether we will need a Center Controller, but
that can be sorted on the night 

If  Bones would like to look in or pop in and help or even give us some sort
of instruction  or advise, I would be grateful. 

Lets go for it, and see what happens.
