Anyone allowing patterns? 😏

The question is, who isn’t allowing patterns.

How long do y’all plan to stay open in general? I may do some Binter Canarias hops after.

At least an hour. However, some of us may stay open for longer.

Dang wrong day to start a long haul smh

@Flying_Pencil if we hop between airports to fly patterns would you ghost us for airport hopping?

Lovely idea! Love flying round the canaries, but it’s sad seeing them not staffed all that often. Will be great to see some full ATC coverage in this lovely part of the world!

It’s something like this that makes me wish we had the Binter ATR even more 🙃.


But do you mean GCXO instead of GXCO :D
