This time, I taxied right to the flying club, where we decided to arrange for fuel from there instead of while baking on the Overview aviation privatization in europe african.
As I was introduced to various flying club staff, I was told that the operations desk tried to cancel my flight plan due to nonpayment of a landing fee, and the flying club had stopped it for our prior flight, telling them that a member was onboard and it was a flying club flight.
According to the lady behind the desk, this is the first time they had ever heard of such a thing. Basically, they would have cancelled the flight plan and the tower would have told me to taxi back, power down, and go in the office to pay.
Excuse me, but where do I pay this fee? It involved a half mile walk, on a busy highway, outside the airport, back in via the passenger terminal, up an elevator, down a maze of corridors, to a room where three people were doing busy work, all in sweltering heat.
Recall that nowhere was I told that there was a fee — not in the ENAIRE guide for the airport, not by the marshaller, not the fuel attendant, nor the tower.
Even worse, the location to pay was simply impossible to find without hand holding by a kind soul, and even then, can we not see the punishment taking place?
Obviously general aviation is not wanted. I asked operations to delay my flight plan, as I was now in risk of cancellation, and had not fueled. From the flying club, stand 31 was reserved there were no airplanes in any standsand the Irishman walked out to open the gate so I could taxi and then park, standing in my required safety vest, which only made a hot day hotter.
As I taxied by, a Frenchman was waiting near the gate for it to be opened so his friend could eventually taxi through, and he so poignantly stated: I did not see a fuel truck for 45 minutes. I called the tower to delay my flight plan, again, and the tower told me to talk to operations.
I asked the tower handle it, as by this point I was irritated, sunburned, hot, and at risk of not being able to get home by sundown. After calling operations multiple times, the fuel truck finally came, which meant 15 minutes of paperwork. He insisted he only got one call and came running over, for which I asked why the tower, operations, and the flying club all confirmed they had relayed the request for fuel.
What are you talking about? I must have wheel chocks. This is the most incompetent crap I have ever dealt with, I am paying a personal record for avgas, and I am about to miss my chance to make it home!
I waited another 15 minutes for the payment process, and got the heck out of there, barely making it home before sunset. It took 9 hours to fly 75 miles, fuel, fly 2. Awaiting takeoff after second fueling. By now, the romance is gone.
Catalunya — on the way home as the sun is beginning to set. I am going to have to clear those clouds somehow with marginal daylight and poor flight service options. This is why I tried to leave hours earlier! This is not the only incident with AENA. Supporters of ATC privatization would likely point out that this is simply a Spanish aberration.
While culture is a factor in all countries, Spain is the most visited country in Europe, and the forces of global and European capitalism, much less publicly traded scrutiny and European heavy handed regulation have not been able to curtail the sheer stupidity.
Germany has privatized ATC and flight service, and while they are organized, landing fees are high, iPad navigation services from all providers are expensive due to fees to DFS German ATC provider as sectional maps are not in the public domain, and flight service comes with a fee.
I suggest reading prior blog posts to understand how Germany restricts freedom in other ways. France manages ATC through their civil aviation authority, and they are the nicest and most accommodating country I have flown in Europe so far.
Yes, the French, who supposedly hate Americans, do everything they can, without fees, to accommodate an American barreling through their country in an N-registered airplane without speaking a word of French.
Free market economics cannot punish Spanish stupidity, and civil aviation authorities managing ATC in France overcomes a prejudicial disdain for Americans. That should tell you something about the nature of these aviation management structures.
I should also point out that Europeans speak of American aviation as the best in the world, stated as a universally acknowledged fact.The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) is the single point of contact for all inquiries about the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
