I'll be on EGBB_APP from 7.30pm local time.

Speak later!

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 forum.

    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 top?
    Gives them time to receive some instruction and gather their
    thoughts en route without having to worry about ATC from block to

    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.
