Would like to be able to have “no pattern work” on ATIS broken down a bit more:
-No pattern work, air traffic volume (too much traffic to do patterns)
-No pattern work, IMC
-No pattern work, single runway operation
This would help differentiate the reason behind why the controller is not offering pattern work. The airport could be just barely be IMC and at that point there shouldn’t be pattern work but some may not realize the real reason behind it.
