IFATC at Home - Denver - @Luke_Sta - Closed

Hey people!

For IFATC at Home, I will be opening Denver International Airport! This thread contains information, procedures, charts, times, and more!


Why Denver? Why should I choose to fly here?

I chose Denver because of it being the main airport I fly out of and my most frequently visited airport. You should choose Denver because of its elevation, variety, and flight frequencies.


Procedures - SIDS, STARS, and Taxi Maps

In the category below, I have put down SIDS, STARS, the primary taxi chart, and taxi information for arrival and departure for all concourses.

Information

The top image shows arrival taxi routes. Tracks and route names will be provided in each sub-category.

SIDs and STARS:

These are laid out in a table for each departure runway and what SID/STAR to expect for each runway upon departure or arrival. Not all available SIDs/STARs will be used and be ATC preferred. I personally prefer the RNAV SIDs/STARs as they contain more information (altitudes, speeds, etc.), and will keep those mostly in ATIS to let pilots know that those are the better ones.

Various NOTAMS:

Runway 17R/35L and taxiway MIKE are back open. 17R/35L is a primary arrival runway, so departures off of this runway will be limited mostly to overflow and cargo aircraft.
Progressive taxi can and will be used by me to direct traffic if needed.
Traffic will be sent to an applicable departure runway due to their destination. (If you need help with this, PM me)


Times I will be open:

I have laid out some times that I should be open for the event. I have also included a probability percentage of what times I’ll be open. All times translate to your local time zone.

Times

2020-07-19T05:15:00Z2020-07-19T06:45:00Z Probability - 100%
2020-07-19T17:00:00Z2020-07-20T01:00:00Z Probability - 75%
