Visit ATC (again)

A couple of years ago the CAA's AIWG (Airspace Infringement Working Group) organised a coordinated 'visit ATC' event, where ATC units, especially those with radar rooms, were encouraged to host visits by local pilots. These visits are often available anyway locally if your club or school requests it direct from your nearby ATC, but this event was to put dates out on offer. It was over-subscribed. It's happening again - go to http://www.airspacesafety.com and look at the news (bottom left). There are already some ATC units and dates there for the end of May, and more to come. Numbers on any one visit are bound to be limited by practical problems of large groups. It's restricted to qualified pilots with licences (as places are limited) but clubs are encouraged to contact local ATC units for visits at other times for students as a normal part of the training course.
