Busy traffic at TNCM

TNCM was so packed that a lot of aircrafts had to hold over TFFG and TFFJ for hours until given clearance for visual approach.

Same. But, I love the traffic at TNCM. Extra traffic = More Challenges. And I love challenges.

Don’t forget San Clemente! That airport was insanely busy back in the early days of IF.

So you want 2 arrivals in an hour, so that we(as controllers) sit there for an hour watching the plane slowly approach us and then just clear them(beacuse there is no other traffic right?)? I get that sometimes the traffic go way above what would actually be IRL but its fun and very interesting to work around that rather than just sit there and send 2 commands, i still wish we had ATC schedule, because the system which we now have is very inefficient.

Awesome shot @flying_infinitely, looks unrealistic but it’s still awesome! 😍


My opinion is on the contrary, with the current system, underrated airports located in IF can feel that they are controlled by IFATC. After all, if you choose a region that has a lot of traffic demand you can control a lot of traffic there. Once again it’s just my opinion about our IFATC system, have a great day Divyansh! 😆

The ATC was working very hard indeed managing all that traffic in one tiny air space.
