Hello infinite flyers on TS1,I would like to point out something that has been making my job as an appr a little bit harder and annoying.So today I was Appr at LAX and before I say anything,I’d like to thank the pilots for not disobeying any of my vectoring and it was very nice to control and vector u guys.
Now back to the main topic.I want all pilots to take a look at flightaware or liveflight to see where the traffic is landing so u guys know which side of the runway to land .Its kinda a pain to redirect those pilots who are pretty close to the opposite side of the runway as I’d love to see vector them on Downwind ,base or If they are far out ,at least a good position.Ive seen many pilots not listen to me and continue to head towards inactive runways when that happens I have to vector u guys out so u guys land on the active side of the runway.When I do that I have to do more complex vectoring and it’s a pain to all pilots in the area,but I have to make eveything realistic:)
I’ve also noticed pilots landing in a runway that’s only used for departures so I urge everyone to check the runway details at your destination or ATIS if available.
If this a duplicate I deeply apologize.
But thanks for reading and I hope u guys take my information and apply it when flying with appr
Happy flying !
Here are some helpful links to know which runways are being used and where to go and appr and ATC procedures
EDIT I want to see who actaully looks up airport info when ther isn’t ATIS
- Yes,I take a look at airport information from websites if no ATIS
- No,I don’t look at airport info from websites if no ATIS
