Air Traffic Control Tips

Hey everyone! So recently I’ve been ATC on TS, mainly ground. A few hours ago, I tried approach for the first time. Wasn’t that busy; only one person. I tried vectoring him, but I had a hard time assigning the right heading. To all the experienced ATC’s out there, how do you figure out which heading they need to go?

I don’t know if there’s a specific place I need to go to ask this, but this is a start. If anyone has any other tips, please tell me.

If the aircraft is on your freq.
-tap and hold the aircraft
-drag to desired heading
-give additional instructions as needed (e.g. Assign altitude, clear for approach, etc.

You can use the drag feature. Just hold the plane and “drag” it to where you want to direct it and it’ll give the plane the heading

The drag feature is your friend. 🙂
