Why don’t the powers that be who design airspace take into consideration that VFR GA pilots can’t actually see the zone boundaries on the ground? CAS design has become so complicated there’s no wonder CAS infringements occur.
ATC inflexibility meaning that it’s almost certainly easier and less stress to navigate around than even try to negotiate a crossing clearance in some cases.
Why isn’t airspace designed so that each corner is at a well recognisable landmark or town etc instead of some arbitrary point on the ground defined by a lat/long reference.
This would result in airspace being slightly bigger or smaller, but would I’m sure reduce infringements and in today’s times of airliner performance, be more than adequate.
For example, Gatwick boundary waypoints could be at Billingshurst, Haywards Heath, Dorking, Redhill, Edenbridge, Weir Wood reservoir etc. Slightly bigger/smaller but does the job.
Not everyone has a GPS, and it would seem not everyone can navigate to PPL standards these days.
