Thanks to the pilots that came out to support my learning while doing G/T and then Approach on TS1…Thank you All for All following my ATC Instructions. Not one issue…Very Rare on TS1. Thank you again
This was at KMIA and Im grateful
You’re lucky my stupid phone wouldn’t take a screenshot.
Why in the world would you force me to taxi from gate D1, two feet away from 26L, all the way around the airport to 27?
Just because you are closer to a green RWY doesnt mean that runway is in use. That happens in real life you know.
I’m an IFATC Supervisor and Recruiter/Trainer, I’m well aware of how to work ground, thanks.
The guy parked next to me was given 26L. It was in use.
I know how to work a field.
That has nothing to do with it. If this were real life, then I’m sure many people would appreciate holding behind a heavy for wake turbulence.
The whole point is efficiency. There’s nothing to warrant a taxi that long unless there’s a very good reason. And as MIA is nowhere close to heavy traffic operations as it is in real life during the course of this session, 27 shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, it should always be considered. Flow is better that way.
I would have done the same thing, you need the exercise. 🙃
Infinite Flight: now with an integrated fitness programme
I am from KMIA, i see departures from 08R and arrivals to 26L, today at KMIA 08 and 09 runways where not in use, the 26 and 27 where, unless he was in an A380, 26L is perfect, supers take concourse J which is right next to 27-09 and heavies or smaller take 26L-08R. No need to send him all the way to 27 as that is a really long taxi from concurse D. Just a note if you’re controlling KMIA
Because Im the Ground Controller
Now really isn’t the time to get smart-aleck with him. Just sayin’. Pick and choose your battles.
So, it’s a power play?
Besides I like my Departures spread out as to be efficient
So… an empty airport with maybe one or two planes warrants “efficiency” to make someone taxi for two miles?
The airport was not empty and I needed the extra taxi time for inbounds…geezz…
Must have been one hell of a line to 26L.
Joshy joshy joshy is always correct, it gets boring when an airport is empty, and it gets stressfull when its full. Efficiency does not mean taxi for 420 miles, maybe putting space between your departures 😉 Is.
I would have been the first to the line. Not kidding.
