How are you?
I’m suggesting a thing for IFATC and maybe TS (would be less possible)
A voice chat Between ATCs
Coordination will be enhanced and be cool if two controllers are available (app/DEP and TWR/GRND)
Tell me what you think 🤔
couldn’t find a duplicate, tell me if you find one.
To my knowledge IFATC has a Slack channel that they can communicate with eachother in. This would be helpful for TS though.
IFATC already has a Slack group that we use to communicate with each other during controlling, and I can see this going out of hand on TS. So I don’t really think it is needed.
Yes but do there’s vocal channels in slack?
I personally think it’s better to use other free software such as discord, instead of devs developing this, attention could be focused on more important things.
I don’t think vocal communication is needed, messaging via Slack seems to work proficiently.
Often, I will be controlling either Ground or Tower at TS1’s busiest airports, and I’ve found it quite annoying that often you don’t know what the other controllers’ decisions and active runways are. IFATC has the ability to communicate effectively through Slack, but those in TS1 don’t. And most probably don’t use IFC either.
So what I’m thinking is something along the lines of the button-style communication we already use for aircraft, but instead for ATC. e.g. A Tower Controller can press a b…
This has already been requested.
Thanks. I’ll search more then.
