As the number of flights across the UK has dropped dramatically, many NATS employees have been put on extended periods of furlough. During this time, many have been volunteering, serving and supporting their communities in a variety of ways…
As an air traffic controller, I usually manage aircraft in a very busy sector of airspace. However, as millions of people across the world are put on lockdown, the number of flights across the UK has dropped dramatically and I’ve been put on furlough.

A friend told me about a community group looking for volunteers to make urgently needed personal protective clothing for the NHS and care homes, so I got stuck in.
