If you want to attract pilots from Europe to this evening's session then
they are more likely to be flying IN to one of the three designated
airfields rather than flying routes BETWEEN the three.  Centre coverage is
essential, IMHO, to assist the APP controllers in assuring an orderly flow
and to relieve some of the (hoped for <G) pressure at EGBB, EGSS & EGLL.
Today's motto should be: "Centre coverage (if available) is essential"!

  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!

    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

    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.
