CaptainJam’s ATC Tracking Thread - [CLOSED] @N/A [PRACTICAL PASSED]

Hi everyone,
Welcome to my ATC tracking thread where I will be posting when I’m open at an airport. I am now open at KBOI for anyone interested to help me practice by doing some patterns.

I passed my written test about a week ago but I did not pass my first try on the practical test, so I am looking forward to practicing controlling an airport.

Airport: LFBO
Frequencies: Tower/Ground
Server: Training Server
Runways: 14L/14R

Please don’t hesitate to leave feedback it will be much appreciated.

I’m stoping by!

Great Thanks!

Wow! Did not expect you to do that well since it’s your first time opening but that flawless except for one thing.

Transition Altitude = 1,500ft (pattern work altitude) + 1,000ft (separation between aircraft) + airport elevation (always rounded up to the nearest 500)

So for KBOI -> 1,500 + 1,000 + 3,000 (2,872 rounded up) = 5,500

All I can say is great job, you’re very far along. Tag me when you open next!


Thank you so much for the amazing feedback. I completely forgot about the 1000 ft separation. I will make sure to tag you. Thanks again!

Hello! I was STELLAR Heavy,

Just like @yoshi_flyer said:

The only thing was you should have cleared me left downwind 10L, because there is no ATIS, so you can’t close runways. but that’s just nitpicking.

I hope to see you very soon in IFATC!

@CaptainJam, how did you learn how to do everything so well?

Thanks for your feedback.
It took me a while to decide which runway since I was originally doing 28L/28R but I didn’t know that you can land 10L since there is no ATIS. Thanks for that!

Haha thanks. I do ATC on the training server a lot and before I passed the written test I also failed once so after that fail I realized that I had barely any knowledge in ATC (I got a 30%) so I kept learning and practicing and now I have learned everything I need to know.
I failed my first practical test attempt since I was pretty nervous. But thank you so much!

Yup still open. I’ll be waiting!

Ohhh that makes more sense, no wonder why you know so much. You definitely know a lot about ATC now, I’m very impressed.


I’m dropping in now as Delta 1594 in a 320!

Malaysian 888 here. Shit I crashed :( coming back

Haha it’s ok.

Thanks for dropping by everyone! I will be closing in 5 minutes for today!

Hello I was Malaysian 888. Overall you did a great job.
Disclaimer: I myself also planning to apply for IFATC, and I am not good at patterns. The feedback below are of what I know based on my session feedback :)

  1. Great work on asking me to descend to pattern attitude. First time doing patterns at KBOI and since I crashed the first time, I thought I’d fly slightly higher :)
  2. A bit late on exit runway command. Typically it is given once the aircraft reach below 70kts.
  3. By right no need to give pattern instructions but I really appreciate that (first time pattern @ KBOI).

Thank you once again :)

PS: May I invite you to come in and do pattern works when I am open? :)
My username is Anthony_Morgan :)

Thanks for the feedback. I would be very happy to help out and fly patterns for you. Thanks!
