IFATC at Home - Manchester International Airport (EGCC/MAN)

IFATC at Home (EGCC/MAN)

Hello :)

On Sunday the 12th May, IFATC is encouraging it’s controllers to open at there Home Airfields, so I will be opening the closest International Airport to where I live, Manchester (EGCC/MAN). The airport is located around 7 miles to the south-west of Manchester, and serves almost 28 million passengers, with over 200 thousand aircraft movements per year. Manchester has two runways, 23R-05L and 23L-05R, both around 3,050m, often they operate only using 23R-05L, at peak times however, they will operate both of the runways, due to the ongoing global pandemic however 23L-05R will not be used between 0700-2100(L).
