324 – Air Traffic Control at Heathrow and RIAT
Guest: Adam Spink Host: Markus Voelter Shownoter: Andy Joiner
In July I visited the NATS tower at Heathrow Airport to interview my guest Adam Spink. We chatted about some of the mechanics of air traffic control at Heathrow and the unique ways of optimizing throughput. A few days later we met again on the tower of Fairford during RIAT 2019 and chatted about the specifics of ATC’ing during an airshow.
