One field I wanted to land at was PCL after hours however, it was only switched on if you called.
Some kids would use a radio and play with runway lights so ATC decided to turn the system off if no inbound plane was due.
This was not written anywhere and I had to divert.
What, no NOTAM or anything? Bloody dangerous and someone needs a good kick up the proverbial for doing that, if true!!
Not surprised by your story david.
Be aware, some airports with PPR PCL, ask you to pay for PCL activation, whether you actually use it or not !! I had a dilemna with a field that worked that way and that I wanted to be my alternate. Not great but it works that way.
