Ok glad you know basic information
But some mistakes spotted
-unesscary I’ll call your base just clear for the option will do
subsequent times came in for touch n go no need for pattern entry eg(enter left downwind ) unless runway change
Once you have cleared me for the option no need for left traffic as you have already cleared me for left traffic
-late runway exit you can do it once the aircraft is below 70-60kts
Good call for the right on the next taxiway
Overall not bad well done mate need to work on more stuff 👍👍

Hi thanks for the service! I was N535WQ, and here’s some feedback:

  • Transition was spot on at 3000ft
  • Initial pattern entry and clearance were also what I’d give to an aircraft in that position, however things got a bit strange there. I don’t understand why you asked me to enter right downwind, I was completely fine on left downwind, and then I also don’t understand why you told me to enter straight in either. Once an aircraft is in the pattern, its down to them to remain in the pattern. If you wanted me to turn base, just issue the turn base command.
  • When I had completed my T&G, its always best to clear early, when an aircraft starts their downwind. I never received a clearance for my full stop either, which is why I called on final.
  • Scandinavian only received a clearance without pattern entry when they first called up, but I believe you tried to correct this.
  • The continue inbound command was unnecessary for Scandinavian, you could have just told them to enter straight in, and then sequenced them when I was on downwind. Typically, the continue inbound command is only used for aircraft who are very far away, or if your sequence is full and you are waiting for some people to land.
  • My runway exit was slightly late at around 45 kts, it should have been at around 70 kts but thats only very minor. The expedite, traffic on final was also unnecessary as Scandinavian was still around 12 miles out. You typically only use this when traffic to follow is on 5 miles or less final.

Overall, you showed a good knowledge of what you are doing, some more practice and you’ll be there!

I strongly advise against restricting people who are not IFATC. Being IFATC or not doesn’t matter at all, as people who are not can still fly properly and give feedback. Everyone should be allowed to come, the more people there are the more you can practice handling inbounds and sequencing. A lot of ATC training pilots in the training group who fly for official training sessions are not in the IFATC team, so everyone should be given the right to fly a few patterns and give you feedback, IFATC qualified or not.
