Hi. I was VT-SOO. I had to exit the session twice because it was becoming a little confusing/chaotic.
Overall, I think you should definitely read up on the ATC manual to sharpen your skills as a controller. Also, I would highly suggest staying away from the bigger airports like KLAX or KJFK or KSFO etc which are prone to trolling and chaotic traffic. In any case, even after you get into IFATC, you will not be able to control the bigger airports until you are promoted to the rank of Specialist.
Here is my feedback from whatever I saw in the session:
“Continue taxi” is not an appropriate command, when I’ve pushed back and requested to taxi for the first time. You definitely need to assign a runway to an aircraft who calls you for taxi for the first time.
When I respawned for the first time and requested pushback again, you said to expect 31L but then when I requested taxi, you sent me to 13L.
You cleared me for takeoff on 13L with an aircraft on very short final. I understand they were not exactly following your instructions, but yeah. (@Zigler_AviationYT callsign Jigsaw 1111 in the F-14, I’m looking at you here, buddy, if you wanna engage in such antics please go to the Casual Server and have all the fun you want.)
You should’ve given an exit runway command to VT-VAR and United 591 rather than a “contact ground”
You forgot about me holding short of 13L after United 591 exited the runway.
Immediate takeoff was not necessary, there was no one on final for 13L.
You should ideally clear me for landing/option on downwind itself, I shouldn’t have to ask. In case of other traffic, use sequencing as necessary (not necessary this time as there was no one in the 13L pattern). I kept reporting my position hoping you’ll give me a clearance, but you didn’t clear me until I was almost out of your airspace on a very extended downwind, after which I exited the session.
Looking forward to see you improve on your next controlling session! Please do consider opening up a smaller airport next time, and do tag me to join!
