Review:

Ground:

  • Pushback and taxi command were perfect. The same with taxi to parking.

Tower:

  • First pattern: Be aware of surrounding terrain. I had to fly over the mountainous area above my pattern altitude. Cleared for the option was good. My landing was decent-ish, but I put the spoilers on by 2500 flying hours of default reaction.

  • Second pattern: I requested change to 03R. You gave me the clearance and the correct traffic movement (right traffic), however you didn’t give me a pattern instruction. You need to give a pattern instruction before any kind of clearance as tower. This includes when Approach is active. If they are cleared for Approach, there is no need to give them a pattern entry, only a landing clearance. This does not go for visual approaches.

  • Go Around: Was unable to produce.

  • Departure: Departure request good. Frequency change approved possibly a little late but nothing wrong. If you know an aircraft is departing the airspace you can get them off your frequency as soon as they are comfortably in the air.

  • Active Airspace Call: Good shout. I wasn’t actually planning on this one.

  • Transition: Failed. A transition is used so that an aircraft can pass through a Tower’s airspace without being disturbed by nearby aircraft, with a separation of 1,000ft+. The transition altitude for this airport is 2,000ft, and with pattern work is 3,000ft. You have to take note of the airport altitude and surrounding aircraft. Take a look here to understand transitions more, as well as more advanced stuff on Tower. (Some game stats are outdated) Most people don’t know what a transition is during training.

  • Inbound: Correct pattern instruction and landing clearance. Correct exit runway command

Also when you’re IFATC you have to announce closure 5 minutes before, and as you’re closing. Unless another controller has confirmed to switch over with you, or you are splitting into multiple controllers.

I’m still practicing, Thanks for coming and I will definitely need to learn a few things. I was expecting only patterns today. But it’s ok.

You are a good controller. Everyone gets confused with the transition. Apart from that the only way you can build the rest of stuff I tested you on is by experience, which you’ll get over time as a controller. Using the side panel/quick access bar is very helpful when controlling a busy airport. I think you’ll easily get IFATC as your skills grow.
