And no, we didn't have to file an hour in advance. We just talked to Clearance Delivery prior to start-up.

I will not be looking to muscle my way into the queue for 10/28. I will not even come within 10nm of its extended centreline. A right hand circuit for 11/29 would do nicely. Even an land and hold short for 16 from a northerly approach is good.
With this in mind, I don't know why we couldn't have approach patterns for VFR traffic taking advantages of lesser-utilised (or unutilised) facilities. If I can fly over KLAX and KSFO with ease (see above for evidence) and along the western side of Manhattan in Class G underneath La Guardia and Newark airspace without giving any controller any additional workload whatsoever, why can't something similar be arranged here?
I don't see why the IAA should be worried about idiot Cessna pilots straying into the path of the jet jockeys. Last time I looked I had fulfilled all of the legal requirements including ongoing revalidation training to permit me to act as pilot in command of an aircraft in JAA airspace. Why not give me a clearly defined VFR corridor to play in (like Manchester or Liverpool) and punish any transgressions if they occur like a proper regulator?

did you learn to fly in a 737 yourself.
Welcome to the forum EI-EI.O.
I think you failed to pick up on the self-deprecation in my remarks above. The idiot remark was reflective of the occasionally disparaging attitude of ATC to spamcans, rather than an attack on their pilots.
If you had bought the magazine this month (the picture above should be a bit of a giveaway) you would know that not only did I learn on little Cessnas, I'm actually the proud owner of one. The nearest I get to the controls of a 737 is flying business class on occasion.
