Hello everyone, I havent been ATC in a while because I’ve been literally addicted to flying in the past month. So, I will be open at TNCM from 18:25 ZULU until 18:55 ZULU (19:25 BST- 19:55BST). If you come to do pattern work, Ill try my best but I haven’t vectored someone to do that in a while so forgive me if I’m sending you the wrong instructions. Feel free to come in anywhere from GA aircraft or A380’s! All feedback is much appreciated :)
Your thread says KLAX but the title says TNCM?
I’m sorry! I should have checked if it was available before I made the topic 😐
You did good, except you cleared the Dash 8 for takeoff when I hadn’t even turned around yet and begun the back-taxi after landing! You have to wait until I am totally done with my back-taxi and clear of the runway. You can’t ever do that, it’s a huge risk of runway incursion.
Also, another thing you need to work on is your spacing. There was only 3 nm in between 2 planes on final and the one behind (I believe it was @AllegiantAir) was flying pretty fast. You cleared me as number 2 for the option, so I had to turn right in front of him. You then told me to go around but still me and AllegiantAir came very very close to a mid-air collision. Also, when you had me go around you said left traffic which is good. But then you said enter left downwind, you didn’t need to say that because you already told me to make left traffic.
Lastly, try to stay open a little longer next time! 25 minutes isn’t that long, most ATC stay on for at least 40 minutes or more :)
Yes he told me to make a 360 when and if I had we would have had a midair collision
Did anyone see me stall after that touch and go, talk about embarrassing.
Basically came in too hot and had already missed 1/2 of the runway and tried pulling up at the end but was only goin 95 KTS and crashed into the Water
i know, but i had to go for dinner.
But isn’t there that massive space at the end of the runway where youD turn around?
Hence why i told him to make a left 360
Thanks for the feedback!
No lol, i was to focused on vectoring the other aircraft.
It still counts as a runway incursion. Let’s say he had to abort takeoff and used the runway to reverse thrust and crashed into my plane. Not allowed at all no matter how big/long the runway is.
I understand now, ill (hopefully) never do that again :)
Still open? If not tag me next time
I’m not open, but I can re-open if you like? I don’t mind :)
