Part of the granting of controlled airspace should be a requirement to invest properly in the equipment and controllers to guarantee access for all users.
I agree but I suppose they can never guarantee access if the airspace was completely occupied or there was some overriding safety issue at the moment you pop up for a transit.
I just feel so overcharged by Bristol over the years - then they removed LARS and now they seem to have issues servicing transits. I’ve wondered where all the money I’ve paid is going. I do hope you get a response from the CAA.
why would you want to go in there anyway?
Larger airports have better/cheaper ongoing transport connections, airline drop-offs, instrument approaches and extended opening hours.
I like smaller airfields too but I wouldn’t want my flying scene to just all look like that.
If we don't take part in protecting GA access to infrastructure, the smaller aerodromes will be built over, the larger aerodromes will have exorbitant handling fees and awkward procedures, and airspace will be over-classified to Class A everywhere.
