Fynn111's ATC Tracking Thread - [PASSED PRACTICAL]

Alright thank you for the feedback :)
Yea, I still have to get a better feeling regarding possible conflicts, but situations like this really help to learn that very quickly

– EDDL is now closed and I try to open again tomorrow (around the same time) –

– EDDL tower and ground is now closed –

Hello!
Thank you for the service. I have some feedback and advice for you.


Feedback:

(See below for advice regarding each situation)

  • [21:39z] - Unnecessary “Extend Downwind” for N811NC.
  • [21:43z] - Upwind conflict resolution.

Advice:

  • The use of the “extend downwind” command is usually for critical situations where separation may be lost. I would recommend avoiding an excessive use, otherwise you will be over-controlling.

  • Whenever you face an upwind conflict, where you have the two aircrafts on upwind and one of them is requesting a runway change (OO-LXV), send a “Extend Upwind” command to the aircraft requesting the change; that way, the aircraft won’t turn into the other aircraft path. Once the aircraft that did not request change (CC-NPR) has turned towards crosswind, give a pattern entry to the aircraft requesting change. Do not confuse or send with “Turn Crosswind” as you did on today’s session (remember that all runway changes must have a pattern entry prior clearance.


Solid Points:
Transition altitude.
Pattern entries.
Sequencing skills.
Clearances.
Runway changes.
Go-around call.

Outstanding session. Perfect knowledge of commands and their corresponding use. Only minor mistakes. Overall, great airspace awareness and most importantly an organized pattern work.


Let me know if you have any doubts, I’ll be happy to help.
Cheers,
Nico

Hey Fynn,

Nice job over there in EDDL.

The only thing I could add is the following.
(Timestamp 21:41 till 21:43)
Extend upwind… was very good when I asked rwy change to rwy23R. A little later you said turn crosswind. It’s better to say in this case “enter right downwind rwy23R, nr 2 traffic to follow is on right downwind.”
So I know where you want me in the pattern and which way to turn.

For the rest, great job!
Cheers,
Stef oo-lxv

Ok, thank you so much for your very detailed feedback, I will keep it in mind! Thank you for coming :)

No problem, nice job!
May I ask, are you being trained by an IFATC Trainer or have you been training by yourself?

I taught myself (I made 1000+ operations on TS before opening this thread and I watched some ATC livestreams)

Wow, impressive. It was one of the best sessions I’ve seen in a while.
Best of luck in your IFATC practical!
