Does anyone know the ICAO for London Control in flight strip? EGTT shows as invalid code.

Hi Geoff,

London Control is EGTT , however, it is (to my knowledge) no longer in Flight Strips. Disappeared quite a while ago.

Dave, any chance of the EGTT ICAO for flightstrip to display as London Control?

There is a good technical reason why egtt (and similar) were removed.

I'll put it on the list.

OK, rather then just EGTT can anybody point me to where I can get a world wide list of such codes? Ideally to be accompanies by Lat/Lon boundaries so I can incorporate on maps?

To my knowledge, no.

This airspace overview would give you what you were looking for with regards to area coordinates, but you'd need to know which sectors fell under which areas.

VATSpy would provide rough outlines of these sectors, which are the governing areas only, here is a snap shot over europe:

I was just trying to find this myself. So what we need is worldwide FIR's. Found this which is a good start http://www.theairlinepilots.com/flightplanningforairlinepilots/icaofirlist.htm It would be really nice to have Lat/Long boundaries for these areas so I could add to our google maps. Found a great place that displays them but can't find anywhere to get the raw data. http://www.arcgis.com/explorer/?open=724dfc8916604483a0ab06b4f3cbe57f If anybody can help with getting hold of the raw geopoints that would be great. (Avsim IVAO contacts anyone? :)

All I get is detail for each fir, I'm looking for all fir boundaries in one file. Just the firs with ICAO code and lat/long points.

Version 1.63 of flight strips adds ability to start a FIR position.

Also added new positions of delivery, departure, Approach and Director.

Version 0.83 of open server will show fir descriptions otherwise you'll just see the code in chat.

FIRs will not show on maps.

4 Hours work to get EGTT in, no wonder I'd left it alone!
