AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND SMALL UNMANNED AIRCRAFT (DRONES) ARE THE TOPICS AT NEXT ELITE AYRSHIRE BUSINESS CIRCLE MEETING

ALL Ayrshire business people are cordially invited to attend the next Elite Ayrshire Business Circle open (FREE) business breakfast networking meeting, which will take place at 8am (sharp) on Friday 6 March at NATS Prestwick.


NATS is the UK's leading provider of air traffic control services. Each year it handles 2.2 million flights and 220 million passengers in UK airspace.

In addition to providing services to 15 UK airports, it works in more than 30 countries around the world spanning Europe, the Middle East, Asia and America.

NATS provides air traffic navigation services to aircraft flying through UK controlled airspace and at numerous UK and international airports. 

So how does it move over 6,000 flights every day through busy skies around the world safely and efficiently?

We’ll be finding out on Friday 6 March.

DRONES

Also on the menu at this meeting is a presentation by Eddie Allison (pictured below).
