then we can do away with most ground based ATC
I think the busier airports will say no to that.
Even with all traffic info on board, we still won’t be able to all self organise and expect the airport’s runway to be optimised without ATC. It would be radio chaos. With someone controlling, it means more fees collected per hour to them and less wasted flight time and fuel spent for us.
That said I think they should still allow uncontrolled movements with restrictions when ATC isn’t around, and not do a Cranfield.

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.
