Hello everyone I want to start practicing to be a ATC controller in the future. I would like to practice ground and tower, come on by to do some pattern work.
Runways: 03L and 03R
Hope to see you there, I will be open for about 30 minutes, all feedback is appreciated, thank you.
I have a bit of spare time, and I’m nice.
I’ll come down!
How was it @Ecoops123 ?
I’m now closed. Thanks for coming everyone.
- Pushback and taxi command were perfect. The same with taxi to parking.
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 (Some game stats are outdated) Most people don’t know what a transition is during training.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.
if anyone still wants to practice i am active at KPWK
Please announce this on your own thread. Thanks
Thank you for the heads up
Please come on down for some patterns at KMCO on the training server. I will be open for about 20 minutes. GA aircraft are preferred today. Thanks.
Runways are 17L,17R, 18R, 18L
I’m now closed, I will open tomorrow, thank you.
Dios mio I have got to come 😃
Hello everyone I’m open at KMCO for some pattern work, on the training server. Hope to see you there.
Runways are 18R, 18L,17R,17L
I’m now closed, I will be open tomorrow!
Hello everyone I’m open at KSNA for some patterns, runways are 20L and 20R, hope to see you there :)
Edit: I’m closing early since nobody came, I will open up tomorrow instead!
Hello everyone I’m opening up KFLL on the training server for some pattern work, runways are 10L and 10R, hope to see you there.
Edit: I’m now closed hope to see everyone tomorrow!
