MaxSez: NOTAM’s & Flight Restrictions, we all know the Drill. But up jumped the 👿!
“I rarely fly Heathrow & London City (on the EXP)I avoid it like the black plague! I referred to it as “Wait-Row”! In passing yesterday in a Cub I noted for the first time those “Dreaded Red Circles” indicating Temp Flt Restrictions (TFR) imposed at both airports
TFR are rarely an imposition, just tap the ICAO and comply with the instruction and do your thing. But up jumped the 👿 on these two TFR’s. The Controlled Air Space at both fields cited where elevated to 10,000 feet AGL vice the 5000 feet AGL as established by IFATC/FDS Guidance/Reg, OhMy, Bad Juju!
Considering IF does not use VFR Corridors! Transiting Light Aircraft thru Waitroe and London City now are requires to deviate from their Flight Plan, and ; take a long detour, burning fuel, extending transit time and install or use onboard O2/ pressurization for old folk like me for no reasonable or explainable purpose because of this Ghost-able wrongheaded procedurel
Who is that Masked Man who developed these ridiculous altitudes in these TFR’s in context. I’d recommend a Ghost or a long stand in a Corner for the Perp!
FDS please correct the ceilings in both TFR’s to comport with the 5000’AGL norm. Thanks.
