Prestwick Centre is home to NATS’ Scottish and Oceanic Area Control Centre, and is responsible for managing air traffic services for Scottish higher level traffic and flights coming in from the Atlantic, heading to UK airports or further afield in Europe. Last year our Prestwick Centre handled over 1.1 million flights. Located in Prestwick, we look after Northern UK Domestic Airspace (inc Manchester Terminal Control Area, Scottish Terminal Control Area) and the Eastern half of the North Atlantic Ocean.
The CIEHF Scottish Regional Group has organised a visit to National Air Traffic Services (NATS) at Prestwick on Thursday 23rd March 2017 from 18:00 to 20:00. It will be hosted by Sean Cleary, Senior Human Factors Specialist.
