As y’all know LSZH was featured for this week’s FNF and was very busy throughout the day. I controlled Approach for 2.5 hour and thought to share few insights and the Timelapse of the session.
So here’s the plan I made prior to opening, since most were coming from LSGG,LIMC,LOWI I kept my initial leg to the north of the airport to avoid people to travel extra miles(When controlling radar,you need to expedite things,if you keep them covering extra miles than needed, it’ll increase the workload unnecessarily, this Post from ATCEG clearly mentions what I mean. Keeping my initial leg to the direction of the majority arrivals kept helped me expediting most of the arrivals)
With one line,14&16 can be used simultaneously (which was done few times) though I was using 14 for most of the time since 16 had queue for departures.
Worked very well with the level of traffic, kept things going smoothly. With presence of the Upwind leg,I also had options to fit any Go arounds, manage spacing and many more!
Here’s the timelapse of the session
Thanks to @Kamaniya for helping me with the video!
