Ion, Izzy, All,
I moved from Biggin over a year ago, too concerned with their exec. jets and ripping up protected woodland AND £50+ (c. $60) landing fees for little guys!
The UK, concerned about commerce, was slow in starting its shutdown measures but once it got the idea the CAA, our FAA, stopped all 'leisure' flying to prevent people close-gathering. I ask you it's a 1/4 mile from the gate to my hangar and I'm the only one there .?? If others in the UK are still flying it is in defiance of the new regs. if so then good luck if they can do it.
We're, UK, paying for that slow start now. I don't know what they are thinking of, the few commercial passengers still are coming in without any health checks, must be seeding despite our other 'measures'.
In fairness to my field they had one ATC guy catch 'it' so they got very defensive, shut up shop and now have just one on duty. All the others are on furlough with 80% wages paid by the state. However, I bet I get a full hangarage bill next month - so I reckon that they are profiteering by it ;^( - Hope I'm wrong but I'll see...
I see that New Zealand and Greece got onto it straight away and are now virtual free of it. (I visited NZ a number of times on business. They are the 'most English' country left in the world - it was a true pleasure dealing with them, thanks guys.)
Meanwhile watching my garden grow is not quite a substitute for that 90deg bank after take-off and whizzing up for an 'Eze chase' against a mate around the clouds.
Please excuse my rant!!

I’ve been to Mike’s airport. They have a stodgy old restrictive ATC system in England. “NATS” is nutz. Lot’s of attention paid to big carriers. Not much representation for little planes. Probably worried not enough people in the tower or something. Helped Pat with a fuel injection problem once. Suggested he just go up to 6,500’ and circle to test out the engine. He said there was a hard deck at 2,500’
So much for Altitude is Life.
