The United Kingdom and Ireland Multi Country Division lies in the northwest of Europe, comprising of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland
and the Republic of Ireland. Covering a landmass of over 120,000 sq miles with a population in excess of 65 million, as you guess we're pretty busy.
We have a talented events department hosting several of the most popular events of the year, including London Heathrow RFE, The Atlantic Crossing,
alongside many other events for Pilots and Controllers alike.
Our extremely dedicated Training and ATC Operations department are always on hand to keep your skills and knowledge up to date,
while all the other staff departments are keeping our division in working order.

There are a variety of airports located throughout our 4 FIR's. These range from the internationally known London airports of Heathrow, Gatwick,
Stansted and Luton in the south to Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow in the north of England and Scotland.
The Irish isle international traffic is served by Belfast and Dublin, Cork and Shannon. In addition to these airports,
there are literally hundreds of airports and airfields in our airspace. Ranging from international airports in ‘controlled airspace’
to grass strips in farmers fields, rest assured there’s a strip for you.
