I think a regular should re catorgirize this as #tutorials since its a great reference

Got you :)

@Dillon_Lewis you sir are a scholar and a gentleman. You’re the first ATC I have seen encouraging use of IFR procedures! We need more of this! I’ll try to make it tomorrow if I can.

you IFATC are so lucky. controlling ATC at one of the busiest times and places sounds like a dream come true, and you can ghost the trolls too! have fun!

I have came up with so many techniques on how I would go about that type of traffic.

Charts everyone!

(Hope you don’t mind @Dillon_Lewis)

HLYWD1

ANJLL4

GOATZ1

IRNMN2

If you need help deciphering the charts here’s two videos to help!

That should be a tutorial by itself. Maybe someone else can do it.

IFATC here is a suggestion:


In the most extreme cases this might be what you use.

I don’t think there’s enough space for departures, for example, there’s a sid that goes southeast, and it directly goes through that sequence. I’ll find it again

Edit here it is: image

I LOVE when pilots use realistic STARS in Infinite Flight! It’ll be cool to see LAX looking (somewhat at least) similar to real life! 🎉

Very good information. Do you have the tickets for departures from the airport?

Stay tuned, may or may not be working on in now. 🙂

You’re welcome for helping you out with ALL the formatting on this thread 😡. In actually, great post Dillon, gave me some decent reading material for my layover :)

@Dillon_Lewis do the IFATC controllers who are controlling like KLAX KJFK or EGLL have pre-made plan for how they are going to tackle the traffic like the picture in my post above

In most cases, the aircraft will be in decent lines already since planes would have already been under the control of a previous controller. When jumping into a busy airspace, a plan is always good for how you line up the planes, but you also need to be fluid and flexible in modifying it as a controller since there will always be exceptions that won’t fit perfectly.

Always! Can’t go wrong with one, but things can get crazy without. 🙂

We almost need to pin this for tomorrow ;)

We have a plan which combines, @trio, a number of arrival and departure procedures so that we can efficiently get planes in and out. We used this previously and it was highly effective.

Have fun tomorriw,
Adam
