Alright well. There’s some stuff you definitely need to work on. Here are the following.

-When I announced that I was ready for takeoff and I was remaining in the pattern you never specified a direction (left or right traffic) to do my circuits in and wanted me to do an immediate takeoff with traffic on an 8 mile final which was not necessary.

-You never cleared me for the option without me having to remind you I was on right downwind touch and goes. It is your responsibility to know where I am and when to clear me instead of me having to give it constant reminders of where I am and my intentions when it was already stated I was remaining in the pattern as well as sequencing me when needed.

-When I was full stop you told me to exit runway when I was airborne and not at a safe speed for that message to be transmitted. It is important to be aware of where the aircraft are.

There are many wonderful and informative tutorials in the #tutorials section on the forum. I’d start with going on YouTube for great tutorials as well.


Hey IF515!

Sorry I couldn’t stay for long yesterday, I had to head out. Just one key point for circuits. As you noticed you kept clearing me for right circuits on 07R, and then I would disappear and then respawn and request a circuit again. This is due to a large mountain right in the circuit pattern for 07R 😉. Make sure you are aware of your airport and it’s surroundings. In this case you could clear me for take off and tell me to make left traffic, and then issue a pattern entry for 07L. Other than that, the clearances you gave we’re pretty good and timely. Hope to stop by for some more circuits next time!
