This is my ATC tracking thread. I created this to practice my ATC skills and then eventually apply for IFATC this summer. Feel free to do patterns, departures, arrivals wherever I am controlling.
Accepting feedback, it will help me!
Feel free to ping me when you open
Thank you so much
Same with me.
Will do, thanks so much
OMDB MY HOME AIRPORT :), I am coming.
@Ahmed1 I cant see OMDB open.
Have you closed?
I am open .
@ECOFRIENDLY_TIME where did u go
Oof, unfortunately game crashed so here is my feedback
Transition at 6000ft for OMDB is a bit high
Can I give my rest of the feedback a bit later I am a bit busy.
Lol thats the one thing Im still confused about - transitions!
Yeah sure, thanks for coming!
Transition altitude is calculated using the Airport elevation
OMDB is at 62 feet
So you round up to the nearest 500 (500 in this case) and then add 2500 to that.
500 + 2500 = 3000ft transition for OMDB
By the way this is the last time I open at OMDB - I am aware there are many trolls when I open at such airport, so next time I’ll open I’ll be at a different airport
Ohhh, but what exactly are transitions?
Transitions are given when an aircraft wants to fly through your airspace, but is not arriving or departing
Ohhh now it makes sense, I read on the ATC manual that that was what it was, but I thought that was what the radar frequencies are for, so thats why it confused me
Well I was on the same boat as you
But I will tell you how to give transitions for an airport,
When giving a transition at any airport add 2500ft to the airport altitude and round it off that will give you the optimal transition altitude. Still couldn’t get it then probably might wanna read the ATC manual book or feel free to pm me :)
I have, but like I said, I didn’t understand it due to this
