Do you have PFAW?Hi everyone,
Does anyone have a contact number for Manchester ATC? I have a job in Stockport that I need advice on.
Hi and thanks for the reply,
Yes I do have PFAW but it's a funny one this, I will be working in a park, loads of space and I also have permission to fly over the property that is to be developed. The work is for a digital imaging company that puts renders of completed buildings over the aerial image.
Although I have the space required, the permissions in place I am not happy with the location to Manchester approach, I would rather turn work away than carry out a job I am not happy with.

Case of having to be if you hold CAA approval. Otherwise they will take it away faster than Joan Collins changes husbands !So good to see "smart" users instead of some of the nutty things people are doing. Up thumbs up.
I can understand your concern. The closest point of Stockport to the Airport is about 3NM which means aircraft on the 3 deg glideslope will be about 1000ft AGL. You could mitigate the risk by reducing your max working altitude to say 60m (200ft) or arrange the work for when the wind in the NE and they are operating on 23L/R. Manchester would probably require a NOTAM to be issued.I am not happy with the location to Manchester approach, I would rather turn work away than carry out a job I am not happy with.
Sorry Google spat those coordinates out to me as I'm not in the office near my maps.
just used Google again to come up with the following
Latitude/Longitude: 53.4075, -2.1687
I am a firm be liver in doing things right hence my concerns and the customer has stated in the brief that the image is to be taken between 15.00 and 16.00 to capture the sun light and the camera height is at 390ft.
Couldn't agree more.So good to see "smart" users instead of some of the nutty things people are doing. Up thumbs up.
