@AsternDestroyer's ATC Tracking Thread [PASSED MY PRACTICAL]

Hello everyone!

Someone recently suggested I open an ATC Tracking Thread, so that’s exactly what I’m doing!
Here I’ll be posting whenever I open, usually in advance to the opening so everyone can plan out flights or pattern work. I hope to get feedback on how I perform!

Here’s how a post would look:
Server: TS1 Global
Time: 1700z (Zulu Time)
Open For: Approx. 30 minutes (Times are strongly subject to traffic.)
Airport: EGCC (Manchester Intl. Airport)
Services: Tower, Ground.

Please make sure your status on this post is set to “Watching” to ensure you get notified whenever I open!

I also recommend putting open or closed in your title, for example: @AsternDestroyer’s ATC Tracking Thread (CLOSED)

I’ll be sure to stop by when you open!

Sounds good! First opening will most likely be tomorrow morning, so I’ll send a message out tomorrow. For now, have a good evening!

No need to send out a new message. Just update your post’s title to (OPEN), and in a little reply add the airport you’ll be controlling, and for how long. And on this: I would avoid the big obvious airports, as they can get busy quickly, and you’ll have too many noobs not following instructions. Grab a less obvious airport; KSCK, EDDL are good as they have parallel runways.

Good luck!

FEEDBACK:

Pattern Entries: you should always follow this plan: Pattern -> Sequence -> Clearance. When I requested runway change to 26L you forgot to give me a pattern entry, this should be “enter right DW 26L” as a I was on right DW for 26R and then sequence and clearance was on point. Same happened when I was on Left DW 26L, it should be “enter Left DW 26R”. Don’t forget to give an aircraft a pattern entry

Tower: the exit command was a bit earlier, try to send it when the plane is below 100kts.

Ground: It was accurate.

Keep it up,
Sebastian

Pretty sure you were on an upwind of 08R when you requested the change to 26R; not sure about the other time. But thanks for the feedback!

Then I misclicked by resending when I meant to do a disregard last message.

At the request at someone I’ll be opening at Vancouver once again!

IMHO…thirty mins is not an adequate time to test control a tower…by the time you get at least a few pilots doing some patterns it is almost time to close …so if you want to be an IFATC …your shift will be for at least an hour !!!

I say 30 minutes but really I open for like an hour… xd

Feel free to stop by!
