That sadly sums up the febrile atmosphere created by current incumbents of the dreadful CAA.
Chevron the CAA actively withhold any evidence that might aid an alleged infringers defence.This is a well established fact and a major reason that trust between the GA and ATC communities has broken down! Stampe
You have every right to see a transcript of the RTF for the time of the alleged incident - sure they won't let you listen to the tape itself, that is kept at the airfield but the CAA go to the airfield and transcribe the RTF for incidents of any sort.
