Oceanic clearance flying into the UK from Scandinavia?

Recommended Posts

Do you need to obtain an oceanic clearance if you fly into, for example, EGPF (Glasgow) from Oslo (or somewhere else which makes you fly out over water)? I'm questioning this since a route between those to airports would lead to a relativly long flight just out over water, which I assume means there's no radar coverage(?) and therefore would it be necessary to obtain a oceanic clearance?

I guess I definitely have no idea for the real world, but at least in VATSIM, no, you don't.  I just did a flight from EGKK-ENGM last week and did not need oceanic clearance from anyone.  I was with Scottish control, Copenhagen control and Norway control.  I believe that would be what the real world would do too.

No. The scottish side is controlled: by Scottish Moray Control

and norway side you have Oslo Control. You don't need oceanic clearance for this stretch.
