George paid a visit to NATS facility in Swanwick to see their Area Control Operations Room and discuss the challenges faced by Air-Traffic control operators.
Their discussion touched on airspace modernisation and complex or high-intensity runway operations. They also talked about the future of air-traffic control and the challenges of ever increasing demand.
"I am always fascinated when I visit NATS to see the way a busy airspace like Heathrow or Gatwick is managed. It is great to have NATS here on the south coast."
