Many thanks to everyone who turned up to the briefing last night.
Chatting to a couple of pilots afterwards I realise that I hadn't made one thing clear enough. When you are using the Worksop Corridor I believe that we could be sharing that bit of airspace with planes leaving the airport in a southerly direction. They are not diverted. However ATC warns all the airline pilots of the corridors status and the possibility of us being there.
From our point of view, you should be able to see the runway and any planes leaving so that gives you the option of doing something, such as spiraling to make yourself more visable. The volume of traffic is low, so its not a huge area of concern.
Cheers.
Pat

Update from Gordon Rigg:
"As I understand it, traffic will normally climb clear above our altitude limit. But in the case of a technical issue reducing climb rate, the aircraft will come through the airspace we have permission to fly in. Hence the need to keep a look out for what is happening on the runway."
