Why a weekday over a weekend?
We have been asked many times about this, so thought it best to clarify the planning that has to be considered in reaching an agreement that suits every location. Sadly, not all places now have working Air Traffic Control units on weekends and without them, we would be unable to approach and overfly. There are also some local noise abatement agreements to consider with some councils that cover weekend flying and the organisation of approvals and lead times are just prohibitive. We are sure that XH558 will be seen by a good number of people and we will be making every effort to promote the arrival times in each area where viewing is possible. Local press and radio will be invited to attend and promote the overflight in their area.
