ATIS PLEASE! I Find an ATIS Broadcast with Weather and the Actives Number extremely helpful. The Broadcast reduces the workload particularly on a long cross country or inter region sortie. Controllers please take a minute as you rotate in at shift change and activate or update ATIS as necessary. Kudo’s Controllers. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication. (They never promised you a rose garden! ) Max Sends
This s a bump of a previous post. My Post “Where’s ATIS” sez it all. Max Sends from 015AGL outbound Page for Ocean Reef Club.
If ATIS could be automated though… It’s "A"TIS for a reason lol
They should bring it back. Like @NatIsrael972 said, it should be automated. Sometimes I hear a Unicom frequency say that ______ Unicom is using runway 4L, left traffic. If the devs added that, they could easily add ATIS.
Nat, A specious, illogical argument still. (Ops or Tower cut updated ATIS tape as the forecast chgs.) Any duffus can record or type except one select group, must I name them? 16 months and counting w/o ATIS. Regards, Max Sends
Sorry but I don’t understand a single word you typed
Even though ATIS is having issues, we have them in our airports repo codes :)
Basically you’re saying that the airports still have ATIS frequencies. Yes, they do, it’s just that none of us are “qualified” to use it ;)
Having ATIS back would be as simple as Tyler or Matt flipping a few permissions around and letting certain ATC ranks use ATIS again.
If you don’t remember, this was disabled a long time ago because it was an unstructured system that was partially being abused (IIRC). They wanted to come up with a better way to have ATIS, probably without it being typed out manually.
Yes, I remember.
Oh I was just saying that for everyone, not directed specifically at you :)
Ah, ok. I just got a notification, so I guessed you were talking to me.
Yes i think ATIS will be great to have an audio source of airport wheater,
avoiding to check the METAR manually and waste time to gotomap-selectairport-seemetar when your in descent…
Some little planes take a loop in the ATIS to know wheater information before entering in an airport pattern :)
Man that would be amazing!
Off topic, but you are really back to the community? Welcome back!
@LufthansaA340… Just passing thru! I’ll comment on the olde olde issues that linger like; refurbished hanger queens, slow updates, lack of Advance(d) ATC Staffing and ATIS in particular. Thanks for the mention, watching! Max Sends
