I am practising ATC right now at KSAN! I will be controlling for 20-30 minutes. See you there!
Alright, I’m joining
I crashed an A330 into Runway 24 at over 500 kts
I saw that…
Here I come
Nice sequencing! A little close for comfort, but it was good to fly. Imagine my excitement when Flagship 27 decided to troll his Cessna into my face when I was 10 seconds from touchdown, taking off against traffic without clearance. Also, you cleared a jet for takeoff less than 1 NM in front of me, so I compensated with flaps and spoilers and hoped he would hit his throttles and get moving.
After you cleared me for takeoff and pattern work, and I was flying east at 2000’ toward the sequenced jets to take my place in line for landing, your ground controller called me on the radio to let me know I was sitting on an active airport and would I please call ground.
Seriously though, thank you guys - that was good fun.
Cessnas aren’t supposed to be in a sequence. If there is another runway, it would be used for props only.
yeah, I was the ground controller… I accidentally pressed that, sorry.
its KSAN, one runway.
I worded that badly. It wasn’t in line. I was arriving number 4 in a sequence of jets, and this Cessna taxied and took off from the opposite end of the runway, all without clearance, and then made a 45°+ bank to the north right after rotation. Obvious troll.
That 737-800 troll is so annoying!
I’m finished! One hour of controlling.
Cessnas can be in a sequence. That’s the whole point of sequencing. A good controller would know how to mix his jets and GA props in the pattern. ;)
While it is more challenging to have a mix, a good tower controller can fit them both in using speed commands, call base, and extend upwind/downwind. All IFATC must be able to do this.
