Thank you @AviationChampion. No problem. Hope to see you next time.

I’ll stop by after I finish my flight from EHAM-KSEA in the ES. I’m gonna be on the ground in about 15 minutes.

Feedback from Delta 1060 Heavy (normally N915DD):

Sorry that this feedback is late. I had to go do some things yesterday.

  • Great transition response!

  • You can give sequences before pilots reach their pattern legs. For example, when I stated I was inbound for 16R, you waited about a minute (until I was to the downwind leg) to tell me to enter a downwind. I think it’s more efficient to have the pilots do a little work in remembering which leg they need to enter. Also, this gives you more time to focus on other aircraft that need attention.

  • Great runway change response!

  • Make sure you are aware of which runways you assign to aircraft and what one they’re lined up for. For example, you cleared me for the option for 16L, but I was lined up for 16C. In this case, a reminder would be good to send and if needed, a go-around.

  • Rest of the session was great!

Overall, awesome session! Make sure to keep studying and practicing. Hopefully, we can get more pilots to join next time!

ATC Manual Section 3.3 - Inbounds - This will help with clearance, pattern entries, sequences, and clearances for options.

ATC Manual Section 3.4 - Pattern Work/Transitions/Flight of XX - This will help with pattern work and transitions.

ATC Manual Section 3.5 - Exit Runway / Go-Around - This will help with go-around calls and exit runway.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks a lot @Cooper_Marcukaitis for giving feedback. I will do make a note of these things and make necessary changes in my controlling from next time. And I will do remember to tag all of you @Cooper_Marcukaitis @Guitar @CompetitiveDivide320 during next sessions.

Would you like to provide any feedback about my controlling today @Cooper_Marcukaitis?

Feedback from N915DD:

Great job today!

  • Great transition response!

  • Great pattern entry call!

  • Since you already gave me left traffic on the first landing, you didn’t need to tell me to enter the left downwind leg on my second.

  • When I called to let you know I was gonna make a full stop, you only needed to call “roger.” The landing clearance was unnecessary as you cleared me for the option prior to that.

  • Rest of the session was great!

Overall, awesome session! Make sure to keep studying and practicing. Hopefully, we can get more pilots to join next time!

Possibly. I’m currently on a flight from Los Angeles to Taipai, but should be on the ground within 2.5 hrs.

I am in a need of practicing ground controlling too. Since, you (@Cooper_Marcukaitis) have already helped me out in practicing tower controlling. So, for ground controlling and sequencing practice I think I am in a need of 2 to 3 persons who can help me out with that.
