ATC controller in Cape Town

What’s with the controller down in cape town rightnow. Okay i understand he is dealing with traffic but he cannot just give me a heading where mountains are present and tell me to descend to 2500. Again i appreciate all the hard work he is putting rightnow to make the flying experience to CPT better

Please PM @Flo_Rauslg if you have an issue with his controlling.

I assure you, our approach controllers are very well trained and will not vector you into a mountain. :)


As Taipei said, they go through vigorous training to reach their position, unlike Ground and Tower and if this is the case and this is true, it must have been by accident or got mixed up somehow. If he is in the probation phase, tell him about it and let the controller know how he can better his/her duties.

Please contact the controller directly. If you need further assistance, feel free to reach out to a moderator. Cheers!
