Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evenings and nights of 12 & 13 March

The other problem is that Canac's personnel is foreseen for sectors that never open. How often are all the sectors opened at ACC? NEVER. Why no accept to reduce reasonably the amount of Atcos present per shift? How many controllers are present per shift? Staffing is foreseen for 2 sectors open, not...

Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evenings and nights of 12 & 13 March

Thank you, atcofi for stepping in and setting some things straight (and taking the time to do that). What you've said is absolutely correct. I'll just add some thoughts of my own: I am one if those currently in training in canac: the rostering problems are real, very far from solved and very likely ...

If easterly winds still prevail next week, a strict adherence to the path onto RWY07L is advisable and no overflying of the NATO shack please.

One would almost hope for strong easterly winds well into the night ;)

Re: Brussels region noise regulation

Personally, I think that's a great idea, if we can use the 07's in parallel because using 01 an 07R together reduces capacity significantly. Yes indeed, would be much better for capacity! Could be a nice compromise to win Brussels over... I think the only way to win Brussels over would be to use 25...

Re: 2018 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

The main runway, 22L, was already CAT III for several years.
Apparently, that's not entirely accurate: 22L was indeed CATIII, but in 2017 a new ILS was installed (or heavy maintenance done on the existing one), causing 22L to be downgraded to CAT I. Only now has it been upgraded again to CATIII.

Re: Kalitta Air Boeing 747 oil spill Brussels Airport

25R open again since 40 min, before we had 19 for departures, and 25L for arrivals. The wind was forecasted to turn to the nordwest and increase, luckily that didn't happen.

I've just checked it: 254 so far this year... Do your statistics also include the reasons for the go-arounds? That would help define which are more or less normal and those which are very abnormal and worth mentioning here. The reason for the go-around is always asked (imo usually at the wrong mome...

Re: Belgian Air Force trainers on a Saturday evening?

You missed a few of them, there were 5 Marchetti's in formation (Red Devils). Because there was little to no traffic at that moment, they were allowed to cross the zone and even make a very nice low pass on 25R.

Don't forget that we had 07's in use the last couple of days. But indeed today the Hainan had to be told about the reduced TORA and had to offload (after some discussion ;) )
