City airport launches its new Air Traffic Service.

Byline: LAURA HARTLEY News Reporter laura.hartley@reachplc.com

CHANGES have come in at Coventry Airport which means it now delivers as a top class general and private aviation airfield.

The Air Ground Service previously in use has been replaced by new Air Traffic Service (ATS) after completing the transition to an Aerodrome Flight Information Service (AFIS).

Coventry Airport, part of Regional & City Airports , one of the leading owners and operators of regional airports in the UK, had provided ATC for a number of years.

However, with the rebranding and regeneration of Coventry Airport as a hub for General Aviation (GA)/business jets and rotaries, the level of service provided has been adjusted to better match the needs of GA.

Paul Brown, Senior AFISO at Coventry Airport, has managed the transition to full AFIS operation, saying: "Coventry Airport has always had the facilities and infrastructure to deliver a top class general and private aviation airfield.

"The transition to full AFIS operations is a major milestone in the strategic growth of Coventry Airport and we're proud to be a member of the AUKFISO.

"We've worked hard to develop an attractive option to GA pilots to visit an airport that offers competitive fees, easy access, plentiful tarmac and all of the services needed by pilots to plan an efficient arrival into the historic heart of England."

To celebrate the launch of full AFIS operations, Coventry Airport is offering free landing fees to GA pilots on their first visit between Friday-Sunday throughout July and August 2018.

The package includes: free landing fee, convenient airside parking, an exclusive 'High Flyers' menu served at The Oak Inn, discounted flight simulator and discounted entry to the Midland Air Museum.
