I’ll be right out!


#3

So, is pattern work where I just go and go and go around?


#4

Basically.


#5

It is just a series of touch and goes.


#6

You coming out @Leif_Tufte?


#7

Any aircraft or just props


#8

Any aircraft is fine


#9

Ok thanks!


#10

I’m trying but I’ve never done it before


#11

You should taxi to the end of beginning of the runway. You can’t takeoff at half length @Tucker_Ryan


#12

I can come out later if you wish.


#13

Sounds great @Plane-Train-TV


#14

I will be staying open for an additional hour!


#15

Thanks for the ATC. Looks like your ready for your exam!


#16

Thanks for coming by @Leif_Tufte and @azeeuwnl


#17

Good job! I’m confident you can pass your practical.
Also good job on the go around with the dude hogging the runway


#18

Very nice job!
Pattern entries for inbounds and runway changes: good.
Sequencing: good. Watch your sequence count though.
You cleared me twice for number 2, without a sequence first. Always first a sequence unless you wait till I’m number 1 (if the guy before me is on very short final, just wait till he’s on the runway, and the clear me for number 1).
Don’t forget your runway exit instructions
Go-around: well spotted.
Little Hawaiian 215 didn’t really need an expedite for leaving 08L, as he there were no other aircrafts.
Exit runway 04R and cross 04L: great!
Re-sequencing where needed: well done.
Try and be proactive with runway crossings. Keep watching those planes taxiing on the platform. I got the idea you were a bit distracted there sometimes 😉

How are you doing with your theory test?


#19

Thanks for you feedback as always. Are you saying I shouldn’t have sequenced you number 2 because the aircraft ahead was on such a short final? I passed my theory test. Waiting on @Julius97 to give the practical exam in about 30 minutes.


#20

You didn’t sequence me. You just cleared me for number 2 🙂
Always a sequence first. Then clearance.

A few tips for good ATC work everywhere:

  • sequencing is your friend
  • timely clearance, but not too early.
  • watch aircrafts on the platform, scan continuously.
  • give way instructions where needed
  • keep an eye out for go arounds

All the best with your test! See you on the other side 😉
