Well done. A few things to keep in mind for next time though;

  • You told me to taxi to 1C when I was considerably closer to 1R. As you had no traffic, you could’ve/ should’ve had me to go to 1R instead.

  • You ongauraded Air Force multiple times. Never on guard aircraft inbound when approach is open, let approach hand off for you. (Unless approach is clearly trolling on the TS)

  • On my runway change to 1L, you didn’t give me an exit direction.

  • When an aircraft repeat full stop, you do not need to re-clear. Your original clearance for the option allows me to full stop, or t&g.

Overall good work, I wasn’t able to test your traffic management/ sequencing skills, but that was a good session considering your just starting the road to IFATC.


Thanks @EthanT2! One thing: approach wasn’t active, so I think it was best to have him with me. Sorry about the accidental landing clearance, I was preparing a clearance for your next pattern and accidentally hit send

No worries. Approach actually was active, ask @Matt777 ;)


Oh ok, I didn’t see that

Yes sir. Was making sure no interfered with your session as the Air Force pilot was coming in to 19C that would have been a conflict for you. I vectored him to 1C out of the way. Listen to @EthanT2 & all IFATC members advise as it will help you greatly.

Overall: well done!
Sequencing and clearance were great!

Some points for improvement:

  • You shouldn’t give me take-off clearance before I asked.
  • You dangerously cleared someone WETOOLOW to take off on 30 while I was on left downwind of 1L. Should have let him LUAW and give take-off clearance after I passed the end of rwy 30…
  • I don’t think it’s a good idea to ask pilots to “maintain slowest practical speed” when they’re just 2nm from the runway. I know I turned base a bit too soon so I had to do a pitch-down approach. Worst case, I would have just gone around.

It was well done! I noticed that you also sent a “frequency change approved” to WETOOLOW on departure, so that was good. Keep practicing and you’ll get to be an IFATC in no time ;)
