Very ridiculous Proposal
In these days of increasing airspace and RTF complexity it is even more important to use standard RTF, in a concise and clear manner without clogging up congested frequencies. I wonder, therefore, whether Hawarden’s recent VRP name change from ‘Mold Town’ to ‘A494/A541 Chester Road Roundabout (East of Mold Town’ does much to contribute to safety? Inevitably, at least for some months, pilots in the area will no doubt have to look down at a piece of paper to read the complete name correctly in full, rather than look up and out and say ‘Mold Town’. So the name change, quite apart from the ridiculous title, will likely reduce lookout and therefore safety.
Does anyone involved in considering this sort of change actually sit back and consider what they’re proposing? (Ref: Jeppesen VFR Terminal Change Notices dated 8 March 2019.) Steve Moody, Leamington Spa
