Again, Welcome to the Port-au-Prince FIR
Looking over the December AIRAC cycle, below are the list of changes we have made to our FIR Controller Staffing Positions;
MTPP - Toussaint louverture Intl Airport: The Ground posiition was removed from the field. We will no longer accept Student 1 Rated Controllers due to no real world ground positions at any of our fields
MTJA - Jacmel Airport: Airport has been classified as a VFR only field with a control tower that we cannot verify if operational or not. we have decided to pull the field out of our official controller positions. ATC services will still continue via VATSIMs Top Down policy. All ATC services in and out of Jacmel will be with Port-Au-Prince Control on 124.500
