I could probably fly in a few minutes

Maybe you should try approach since you teached all us IFATC about it a few days ago.


Great! Thank you!

I know yโ€™all are testing me!

Iโ€™m charging my phone a little bit :)

So, a few things. For someone who tried to teach us approach, you know surprisingly little. You need to have a thorough grasp of the concept of a pattern to be a tower controller. The legs are crosswind, downwind, base, and final. If I report my position, you need to give me a sequence, followed by an option clearance so I can do a touch and go. I didnโ€™t receive a single one, nor a single sequence. That was a very poor showing. I also received some messages in the air that made no sense, like no intersection departures. Next time you try to teach IFATC something, make sure you know what youโ€™re talking about first.


You never asked for touch and go

what region is EBBR in?

I never asked for a touch and go. Letโ€™s just think about that for a minute. I was there for ten minutes. I touched down on the runway and took off again approximately 20 times. Being that Iโ€™m an IFATC, I know what ATC commands mean. Therefore, I requested somewhere in the area of 20 touch and goes. Not exactly 0.

Itโ€™s in Amsterdam.

ok, cool, is it still going on?, oh EBBR is brusels, isnโ€™t it?

Yes it is. Iโ€™m not sure if itโ€™s still happening.

oh, ok at least i got the airport right lol!

Amsterdam, Netherlands

thxa, someone already answered, but thanks again for responding! :)

That was a mess. Iโ€™m asking to takeoff and Iโ€™m getting clearances while there is a 747 taking off on the same runway. After that, I asked for a GPS approach and got โ€œThe frequency is busy, please be patientโ€ so I asked again and got the same response. What am I supposed to do as the pilot at that point? You know Iโ€™m inbound for landing and the least you couldโ€™ve done is sequenced me to follow someone else in the pattern instead of trying to deal with one person at a time. I suggest practicing with ground and learning to manage airplanes that are barely moving before you step up to tower. Never mind trying your hand as approach. Good luck.


Circle around the airport until I give you clearance
