I’m lty , I’ve just passed the IFATC written exam, I’m now practicing for the IFATC practice exam. Any feedback is really helpful, I hope that I control a few planes so I can practice sequence and ground conflicts.
2.An unnecessary downwind extension And extended too long
3. There were aircraft on the runway and were not extended
4. Give option permission too late
5. As soon as G-PMKY landed, the subsequent plane gave permission to take off, a little early conflict.
I hope my feedback will help you😊
Actually I think you did a lot right, but you panicked a bit when it got more complex and especially that Southwest lining up when you’d said to hold short.
Ground control is good
Transitions were at a good altitude
You gave pattern entries for all inbound and runway changes, and directions for all takeoffs - this is great to see and often missing for new controllers
Don’t be tempted to over control when a sequence will do, such as the extend downwind to Henry behind me. He knows he’s number two and will space himself accordingly.
Good go around for me when the runway was blocked. But Henry should have had one too, it was too close for his landing as well. (the right call for the Southwest should have been “not cleared to enter the runway”).
You cleared the takeoff behind my landing a bit too early. I normally wait until the landing plane commits to the turn and then I know they’re definitely exiting; remember IF’s recommended turn speed is 10kts.
As you get more confident try to give your sequences earlier so everybody knows what they’re doing, and give clearances as soon as you think the order isn’t going to change.
Good start, look forward to flying with again soon!
