Hello. I was going to fly patterns but something personal came up and I needed to leave quick, but some feedback I got from the short time I was there:
• You initially told me to taxi to 16L. I don’t think this instruction makes sense, as it would involve me going all the way to the opposite side of the airfield and require a runway crossing. It is your discretion, but since 16R was literally right next to my parking spot, I think it would be more suitable for an efficient departure.
• The “contact Sydney tower on 119.XX” instruction is unnecessary as this is already included in the taxi instruction: “8-SMRT, taxi to runway 16R contact tower when ready.” (If someone requests a frequency change after taxi, the correct command is “you were already instructed to change frequency”, found at the bottom of misc. messages”)
Anyway, I hope to test you more in the future, keep watching those #tutorials and practicing! Best of luck on your ATC journey!
