Feedback from YMCA
➢ As someone said above, it’s unnecessary to tell ‘right’ or ‘left traffic’ at each touch-and-go. Instead, just use this command after a runway change or when the aircraft enters the pattern.
➢ It was very close at one point. It would’ve been safer to ask me to go-around ‘just in case’, but as you’ve mentioned, I touched down right when the other plane lifted off the runway.
➢ Your ‘exit runway’ command was late: usually, as written in the ATC manual, you should say that when a plane reaches 70kts on the runway (particular case after you clear an aircraft for the option, as we don’t know if it’ll take off again or not).
✔ The taxi instructions were correct.
✔ The take-off command was perfect.
✔ The landing clearance and the clearances for the option were perfectly provided, at the optimum time.
✔ The go-around was well-handled.
✔ The pattern altitude was also spot on.
✔ Spot on for giving me a landing clearance rather than a clearance for the option when I said ‘inbound for landing’.
Overall, it was a great session. You’ve got the basics. Now, what you need to do to become perfect at controlling is working on those little details. Congratulations, and good luck!
