Automated ATIS

Would this be possible? CONCEPT: auto ATIS for airports. HOW IT WORKS: The system would detect the airports wind, traffic (aircraft tuned to frequency or on the ground), and if delays are expected (part of traffic). EXAMPLE: KLAX Information alpha, expect delays ground traffic and air traffic heavy, visibility 8 miles, winds favor runway 25L 25R 24L 24R, expect those runways for arrival/departure, winds 7KNTS at 240.

Thoughts?

The controller (if not qualified for ATIS) can say which runways are In use.

@Rotate I’ve kinda decided no one cares about improving the functions or ability’s we do have but only want more more more. I’ve created several of these posts trying to help the problem aera’s of the sim. This one
This one Proposal for updating report user function
I think a few more they all get burried and lost. It’s all about what is new not what we can improve and that’s sad to me.

ATIS has been disabled? I think I missed something. Why was it disabled?

ATIS was disabled because it wasn’t being used correct and took away from a good atc experience. It will be added later when there is a better system for ATIS and it is easier to create.

I thought you need to be a high rank in controlling to enable ATIS. I’m surprised it was being used incorrectly

I basically caused ATIS to go off line I had one set up and didn’t have much traffic and still used what was in ATIS to dictate my runway usage. It will be back with better access for users

ATIS took a long time to create and made controlling while creating it difficult. ATIS was proven to more complicated than useful. It will reappear when an easier system is created.

Correct Carson. Controllers had to be at least AC1 or ATC Specialist to use the ATIS feature.

Well that’s what happened. 95% of pilots wouldn’t look for it reguardless and I loved it as a pilot that’s why I made it a point as soon as I became a specialist to not open an airport that had it and not utalize it. But that’s why it was shut down.

How do you rise in the ATC ranks?

@Carson get in touch with a recruiter provide experience and age and a bit about your self and they will test you and pass you or tell you what you need to improve on for a retest.

Yes I am aware of that and am taking the test sometime this week. But I was just curious about when you are an ATC how you rise in the rankings. But I guess I’ll find out soon enough:)

👍🏻 they promote for good controling and test to be able to do approach and center.
