It’s a bit of a bummer, but most of the times for example I would fly from Manchester to London Heathrow, when I’m near London Heathrow the ATC always leaves. Then I’m Landing in UNICOM. It gets annoying sometimes. I was just wondering if there is some type of timetable that’s shows what time ATC will be available and when they close.
Unfortunately, there is not a time table. IFATC is a volunteer service, and we open/close whenever we want, basically. The only restriction is that we have to have Class Charlies and below open for a half hour, and class Bravos open for an hour.
Just out of interest, what’s does class Charlie and class bravo mean
Here is a helpful link I’ve found.
@Adam_Williams’ reply was also helpful.
In case you wanted another source, here is @USA007’s topic.
Also to add on to what @MrMrMan said for time limits, on the Training Server there are no limits for being open. so someone can open and close constantly.
Thanks for the reference!
I’m happy to help! 😄
