ATC strips dashboard

Hi
First, does anyone know the meaning of all the markings on the strips? Whats under the runway number? what it means when turned green etc.

Second, what logic is behind the order of the strips?

Cheers

A simple explanation form an IF ATC:

  1. Green runway number marking: a green rwy marking means that runway is safe to use and is not affected by any weather conditions. An orange marker means the rwy is affected by a few weather aspects and is asked to use with caution. A red rwy marker is when the runway is difficult, if not impossible to use.

A red runway simply means that it is inactive due to the wind conditions.

Not always.
Some red marked runways are still within the maximum tailwind component limit.

That’s what I’m saying, it’s inactive, not closed.

I was actualy talking about the airplane strips on the right side of the screen, where you see the airplanes callsign and other info…

Oh.

FF = Flight Following
RV = Radar Vectors
ILS = ILS Approach
LOC = T&G’s

Don’t quote me on this, but I believe green means that you have cleared the plane for landing, option, etc.

LOC means The aircraft is in the pattern doing touch and goes.
