7 Modernise UK RTF Procedures

UK RTF procedures for VFR aircraft are cumbersome. For example the requirement in CAP413 for the transmission of point of departure and destination when requesting any ATC service is irrelevant and contrary to the procedures published in the UKAIP. However, the CAP413 procedure is enforced rigorously by many ATC units causing congestion and reducing the availability of services.

Efficient access to airspace for VFR aircraft requires RTF procedures and practise that is short and simple such that it can be used effectively and confidently by the private pilot.
