Hello fellow air traffic controllers and other aviators!
I am Cedric Laureys and I like to be an air traffic controller on the training server.
Most of the time, I love to do it but sometimes I hate it. Let me explain why:
Often, people don’t listen to my instructions. For example on the ground and tower service, they request 27L but it’s not in use, do I assign them rnw 09R. They just don’t listen to me and taxi to 27L anyways. When tower gives them clearance for takeoff on rnw 09R, they still takeoff on rnw 27L…
It’s even more fustrating on the departure or approach frequency: People often don’t turn the assigned headings and just follow their flightplans. When I give clearance for rnw 36C they still continue their approach to rnw 36L.
Because of this, I don’t like to be IFACT anymore.
My question to IF is: Is there a possibility to give atc the authority to punish people who are not following the instructions? I have some ideas, if you want to know them you’re welcome to contact me :)
Have a nice vacation
