As some of you may know, I want to be a IFATC Controller! You have to start somewhere though so if anyone is able to help me achieve that, I would appreciate it! I hope to control you soon 😂
I’ll be open in Fort Myers (KRSW) later of you want to come and fly some patterns!
@JacksonAviation, I’d be interested. Let me know how long until you’re starting.
Probably 30 minutes or so
Now Open at KRSW!
I’m open at KRSW now and most likely MRLB later
Closed! MRLB may be tomorrow
Now open at MRLB!
You did fairly decent, but I have a few things to point out.
You cleared me for transition at or above 1,500ft, that is pretty low, and 2,500ft or above would’ve been appropriate for this airport.
No need for me to line-up and wait, as there is no other aircraft inbound, you could have easily just cleared me for takeoff.
When I was on left downwind for runway 7, you told me to extend downwind, even though there was no incoming traffic.
When I was entering downwind, you told me: Cleared for the option runway 7, after the option make left traffic.
The pilot would already imply to make left traffic, as when I took off you said: Cleared for takeoff runway 7, make left traffic.
Those are my suggested improvements for you as ATC, I wish you luck in the future!
Thank you! I will use that in the future!
I will be open at KBNA later
I’ll be open at KBUR in about four minutes
I’ll spawn wait
Thanks! I’ll be there in a sec!
I need to plan some stuff tho
I’m coming! Callsign: Airbus 737
On my way!
You did decent, but you still have a lot to work on.
If there is one or more aircraft landing on the same runway, you must give them a sequence, or else the aircraft doesn’t know who to follow, or they could just hop in front of someone on final.
Before giving a clearence, you must give a sequence first. Also, when I changed runways, you must clear me again, same with the go-around. When I was on final the third time, I would’ve called a go-around, since you forgot to clear me.
Also, to another aircraft, they requested for a touch and go, but then you told them, Cleared to Land, in that situation, you would tell them “Cleared for the option”.
When I landed, you should’ve told me to exit the runway, but you never told me when and which way to exit.
Also, whenever someone requests a runway change, you must give them a new pattern entry into the runway.
That’s all for now, I hope you continue to improve in future sessions. :)
Feedback from your session @JacksonAviation
Taxi clearances - good
Takeoff clearances - good
Pattern work - ok, although lots to improve on. My first pattern could’ve been cleared to land much earlier as there were no other aircraft in that pattern.
Runway changes - need to ensure you are giving a pattern entry prior to clearing the plane to land, rather than giving a straight away cleared to land command. This helps the pilot know where to go.
Landing clearances - usually a fair bit late
Other aircraft - you probably should’ve told me to go around or the other aircraft, rather than making me do a 360 on short final at 200ft AGL
Sequencing - as said in @InfiniteNick’s post, you must give a sequence if there are multiple aircraft flying the same pattern at the same time. (If you forget/don’t do this, you will definitely get a fail for the practical as it is a huge part of ATC)
Other than that you did alright.
