ATC Education Group: IFATC Approach and Departure Time-Lapse @ VHXX

A few weeks ago, me and a few other controllers worked together as a team to manage the mass amount of inbounds into Kai Tak. Was really a fun experience and I hope you can learn something new, or just be entertained by this time-lapse I made of my session. Enjoy!


Great video! Also great controlling by you guys🤙

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!

I find how cool it is if you high speed scrub with your finger to see a super fast time lapse of it very cool to see this time lapse in general

Bit of fast forward editing by @DGGR will do the trick. ;)

Awesome video. Also helps pilots understand/view controlling. Gives them another perspective.

Definitely, I was pretty focused on my section in the moment so I learned a few things just watching what initial was doing in the replay.

You guys make it look easy. Awesome job Kyle, Ethan and Gary!

Super rad watching it. Very interesting and entertaining to watch all the aircraft in the airspace move around so much without hitting another aircraft. It’s actually satisfying. 😝

That’s the fun part of being an approach controller. I would love to do it considering I like satisfying puzzles like these. The only problem is, I have a keen affection for perfection. I don’t like messing up.

Perfection is subjective depending on what the goal is, efficiency is the most important thing. Messing up is inevitable and happens. Thanks guys for the kind words!


I wrote a post on the efficiency of both strategies, for anyone that’s interested.
