We have changed our payment processing service to use PayPal instead of WorldPay (because of the exorbitant charges of the latter). In most cases you should be able to make a payment with a credit or debit card regardless of whether you have a PayPal account.

If anyone encounters any problems whilst attempting to make a payment, please let us know.

New VAT rules have come into effect today across all European Union countries. These have introduced a compulsory application of VAT to all software downloads that are purchased within an EU country, regardless of the normal VAT thresholds. Not only that, but the rate of VAT to be applied is the rate in the customer's country and not the rate in the supplier's country. Oddly, the normal VAT thresholds don't apply to these purchases, except in the case where the supplier and customer are in the same country.

Unfortunately, this means that we must add VAT to all downloads purchased by customers within the EU, except for the UK.

VAT is not applied to purchases made by customers outside the EU (USA, Canada, Switzerland etc).

In order to simplify our shopping cart, we are using a flat rate of VAT at 20%, which is the average European VAT rate, and we will adjust our price to take account of any difference in the customer's actual rate. So, the price of the main London Control software, including VAT, will always be 28.80, and the price of an LCData Update, including VAT, will be 9.60.

We do apologise to all our EU customers, as this will inevitably mean a rise in the price of a download, but this is entirely due to circumstances beyond our control.

The new rules do not apply to the purchase of tangible goods (including software on CD-ROM), so the price of these will not be affected.

The latest LCData update is now available. This takes the London FIR data up to AIRAC 6/2014 (29 May 2014).

The major change this time is in the Manchester area, with a new North sector combining the old North Upper and North Lower, with a consequent re-arrangement of East and Sector 29. There are quite a few other, more minor changes to various sectors. Plus, the flight plan database has been updated, including more A380 and B787 schedules.

This update is only available by download. Instructions on how to download and install the update will be given by e-mail after purchase.

Please note that orders will be subject to manual processing, so please allow at least 24 hours for download instructions to arrive. Also, the 'Download' shipping zone must still be selected in the shopping cart, so that the shipping charge will be correct (zero).

For more information, please visit the Updates page.

If you would like to purchase the Update, please go to the buy now page.

23 June 2014

As we are no longer registered for VAT, our prices have now been adjusted downwards, as the VAT element for customers within Europe has been removed.

7 June 2013

The latest LCData update is now available. This takes the data up to AIRAC 6/2013 (30 May 2013).

The major change this time is the introduction of some new routes across the Irish Sea, with significant changes to Sectors 4 and 7 and Scottish Isle of Man Sector. The trend of airfield closures continues, unfortunately, with Bristol Filton having been lost. We've also lost a few airlines, including BMA and BMI. However, there has been a significant update of the flight plan database with over 2,300 new or updated flights, including the first Boeing 787 schedules of Air-India, Ethiopian, LOT, Qatar and United.

This update is only available by download. Instructions on how to download and install the update will be given by e-mail after purchase.

Please note that orders will be subject to manual processing, so please allow at least 24 hours for download instructions to arrive. Also, the 'Download' shipping zone must still be selected in the shopping cart, so that the shipping charge will be correct (zero).

For more information, please visit the Updates page.

25 June 2012

At long last, the main London Control software is now available to purchase by download from our website.

This means there will be no need to wait for a CD-ROM to be delivered by post, or to pay for postage. Instructions on how to download and install the software will be given by e-mail after purchase.

Please note that orders will be subject to manual processing, so please allow at least 24 hours for download instructions to arrive. Also, the 'Download' shipping zone must be selected in the shopping cart, so that the shipping charge will be correct (zero).

The software is still available on CD-ROM, in which case the appropriate shipping zone should be selected when making your purchase.

Please go to the Buy Now page to make your purchase.

2 June 2012

The latest LCData update is now available. This takes the data up to AIRAC 6/2012 (31 May 2012).

There have been quite a few changes over the last year or so. Some new routes have been introduced northbound across the English Channel and Sectors 15 and 16 have been rearranged to suit. Sectors 19 and 22 have also been modified. Unfortunately, we've lost RAF Lyneham and Plymouth Airport, plus quite a few airlines that have fallen by the wayside. On the plus side, several hundred new flights have been added to the flight plan database and there are various changes to standard routes and standing agreement levels around the country.

For the first time, this update is available for purchase by download, so there will be no need to wait for a CD-ROM to be delivered by post, or to pay for postage. Instructions on how to download and install the update will be given by e-mail after purchase.

Please note that orders will be subject to manual processing, so please allow at least 24 hours for download instructions to arrive. Also, the 'Download' shipping zone must still be selected in the shopping cart, so that the shipping charge will be correct (zero).

29 March 2011

The latest LCData update is now available. This takes the data up to AIRAC 4/2011 (7 April 2011) and includes a whole year's worth of changes.

There have been various changes around the London FIR, mostly of a minor nature. The flight plan database has had over 2,500 flights added or updated, and (sadly) several more defunct airlines have been removed.

For more information, please visit the Updates page.

If you would like to purchase the Update, please go to the buy now page.

2 March 2011

Yet another new patch, raising the software to version 1.4.4.3, this time to fix the gremlins that crept into 1.4.4.2 regarding the relative heading and range rings. Hopefully they're working properly now.

Please see the Patch 1.4.4.3 page for more details.

The v1.4.4.2 patch has been withdrawn.

For quite a while now our forum has been causing a considerable headache. The problem is that the phpbb software that it uses is incredibly insecure and allows robot users to continually register as new users, in an attempt to advertise undesirable products and services. This has now reached epidemic proportions, with something like 95% of the visitors to the forum falling into this category. We are forced to waste valuable time and effort dealing with these, and the only thing we can do to provide a little protection is to ban ranges of IP addresses, which often means that genuine users can't access the forum.

Things are really coming to a head now and we have reluctantly been forced to take the forum off-line temporarily while we consider what to do next. Transferring the whole forum to another platform seems to be a difficult and time consuming exercise. An easier option might be to effectively archive the existing forum contents and make them available in a 'read-only' form, and start a new forum using a different platform. It must be said that a lot of what's on there is pretty historical and probably not of much interest, but there are lots of useful topics that might be helpful to new users, so it would be a pity to lose them.

If anyone has any views, we'd be very interested to hear. Please e-mail us at support@londoncontrol.com.

In the meantime, apologies for the temporary loss of the forum. We hope to bring back some semblance of normal service as soon as possible.
