Airservices closing down Flightwatch transmitters
Airservices Australia has made the decision to close down 27 VHF transmitters, which provide important safety information to pilots throughout Australia.
Good news, the above paragraph was written over a year ago. Since the action taken by myself and the solicitorís letters, the 27 VHF transmitters have not been closed down and are continuing to provide important safety information to pilots.
Thanks to all those who helped.
