Forgot to put landig gear down on landing
Here are my thoughts

  • You did a great job with my runway change request giving me pattern instructions that will be huge in your test as I have taken and failed it before

  • When a aircraft is doing touch and goes traffic instructions ARE NOT NECESSARY! They are only Necessary if a plane is on transition. This is a game changer in your test

  • Transitions will come up in your test also. With those you have to know the aircraft in your towers vicinity. If it is a Commercial aircraft they have a pattern altitude on 1500 ft if a separate plane request transition add 1000 to the commercial plane in the pattern, So the call would be transition approved at or above 2500 ft. If it is a GA aircraft they have a pattern altitude of 1000 so transition approved at or above 2000.

You still need to maintain 1000 ft of separation from any aircraft. If there’s a jet doing patterns and a GA requesting transition, 2000 ft would only give 500 ft separation, which is not enough.

The minimum transition altitude that you should be giving in any situation is 2500 (unless the airport is below 0 ft MSL). It could be more, depending on the altitude of the airport.
