Hey, Carter! Thank you for opening up today. Here’s my feedback.
- Good transition altitude for me.
- Good pattern entry for me on 29R when I called in.
- No sequencing for N503SP at 03:40:16Z. You simply cleared them as number 2.
- No sequencing for me either at 03:42:36Z. Same issue as the third point.
- Good runway change for N503SP at 03:43:37. You also sequenced them here, which is good.
- Late clearance for me after I changed to 29L. I had to report position on final to remind you at 03:45:16Z.
- No sequence for me at 03:47:18Z. Same issue as points three and four.
- No sequence for N503SP at 03:49:18Z. Same issue as points three, four, and five.
Overall, you did pretty well. The runway changes were well-handled; the pattern entry and transition for me were also good. Your only issue right now is sequencing. Remember: all aircraft following each other to the same runway in the pattern need to be sequenced. Inbound aircraft without radar also need sequencing (as well as pattern entries before you clear them). If radar is present, aircraft that are radar vectors (RV), flight following (FF), or are cleared for the visual approach all need sequencing. The former two (RV and FF) require pattern entries as well, but visual approaches don’t. Section 3.4 and Section 3.6 of the ATC Manual explain these two concepts in depth.
Aside from that, the only other thing I noticed is that your clearances could be a bit earlier. You can clear aircraft when they’re on late crosswind/early downwind. You don’t have to wait for them to be fully established on the downwind. On an unrelated note, VFR aircraft (pattern work is an example) only need to be 500ft apart (vertically). The 3nm/1000ft separation applies to IFR aircraft, and even so, only one of those have to be met. If the vertical separation is there, the lateral separation can be exempt. The same applies the other way around.
Keep up the work, and feel free to reply to this or PM me if you have any further questions or concerns.
