This is meant as a polite safety recommendation. If you were not at the FAASTeam Wings event this evening at Clow (1C5) regarding the ATC ops at KLOT, please get up to speed on the situation there before venturing into the KLOT Delta. There is no radar, no FDIO, and no current plans to add any additional equipment. There are only 3 total controllers to cover all hours and all operations. They often have a single controller to staff ground, tower, phones, etc. They need to work with Chicago (C90) to manage any IFR handoffs they have but no way to track them. They had almost 8,500 operations in February and are projecting +/- 100,000 annually. Pilots were encouraged to consider flying during off times the school students were not. They have specific blocks when they have many student solos in the pattern, etc. the suggested to avoid. It sounded to be a very over stressed situation. Multiple attendees expressed concerns over near misses they had experienced recently.
