Email received today:

Suspension of ATC Service


I am writing to confirm that due to staff illness of one of our ATC staff we will have to temporarily suspend the ATC service and hence suspend flying operations on this Thursday the 10th April, and Friday the 11th April.

Yours sincerely

Aidan Fox
Aviation Service Manager

National Flight Center will move several, perhaps as many as eight aircraft, to EIAB to cover booked student flying, flight tests ect.

Skywest positioning one, maybe two R-44 to EINC.

I have no info at this time on what arrangements are being made by other schools, clubs, private or commercial operators are making.

Can they not get another ATC guy in like Knock have done in the past? Or just operate without ATC like Abbeyshrule and many other airfields do around the world??
