I got a couple of general questions about ATC. Currently I’m mainly trying to operate in busy airports in the training server because I need to improve my capacity to operate in stressful situations that is when I tend to make more mistakes.
I already know the basics for ATC, I have good experience even tho is not exactly applicable in every scenario for big airliners. I have a couple of questions but I will probably add more in the comments.
KLAX: let’s say we are differents controllers for gorund and tower. If a plane lands on 25L and needs to cross 25R, should tower switch freq to ground or can the plane stay on tower freq since tower knows how much time he has to cross the rwy? (Usually 25R is really busy so there is planes lining up, taking of and landing every short period of time) In order to cross usually the plane cleared for LUAW should hold for him but ground cannot really do that. I’m going to summarize the question, when a plane exits a rwy, does he has to always switch to ground or there are some scenarios where tower can choose to keep him in his freq? Or how do you operate in those situations if you are ground?
I already asked this question in other topic but is still not clear. Transition altitude: Should be inside the airspace (below 5000 AGL) but high enough to not become a problem for planes in the pattern right? In the written test there was a couple of questions about that all with different altitudes. Does it take in consideration recommended VFR / IFR altitude depending of the heading of the aircraft? (odd / even + 500ft for VFR for example)
Give way to… is also an instruction for the aircraft to hold position if needed? or should be together with a hold position if the aircraft needs to stop in order to have enough space to fit both planes?
To improve ATC, what do you guys recommend, enter in big airports to improve operations in high stress or go to smaller airports?
I have more questions but right now I don’t remember all of them haha but I will probably ask more things in the comments. If you dont understand the questions please let me know and I will try to reformulate the question.
Probably I will open the tracking threat again tonight (USA time zone) and I would really appreciate if anyone could join that to practice a little bit more.
Thank you guys!!
