Feedback for D-LIPA (CRJ700)
-By 18:41Z, I should have a sequence. This way, I can plan who to follow. You can sequence aircraft whenever you feel ready! This way, they can follow people without you telling them when to “turn base” or “extend downwind.” I sent a position command to make sure you didn’t forget about me at 18:42Z, but you did not answer till 18:44Z. Until you sequence me, I do not know who you want me to follow. Make sure to not forget sequencing! There are good IFATC videos for you to watch to sharpen your skills.
-At 18:44Z, I hear you giving clearances to people on the upwind (as 2nd and 3rd, which tells me you knew I was there). That is fine, however, I was on final and still hadn’t been cleared. Make sure to not forget about your clearances.
-At 18:46Z, I reported on final to try to get you to clear me. You responded with “You are already cleared to land” at 18:46:28Z, which is not true. You did not clear me to land, so I went around.
-Your go around commands were good! You gave me a pattern direction, which was perfect.
-I heard you give a departure command to EI-COL at 18:50:12Z, and it was perfectly done.
-I reported that I was on left base a minute later because I was still not cleared, so I tried to remind you. Replying with “Roger” there does nothing, but instead, you should look to see if you are missing a clearance or if the pilot wants to remind you they are “full stop,” meaning they were in the pattern but now intend to land normally. I never did receive a clearance for the option/to land, so I again went around.
-After going around, I requested to depart to the North. You handled that well!
Things I did not do today were runway changes or transitions, but I am sure other pilots have.
My overall advice to you is to re-read the ATC manual, which can be found here. Also, check out Infinite Flight’s videos on ATC’ing on YouTube. They helped me a lot in my training. Keep working hard and you’ll get the hang of it soon!
No wonder you kept calling out. Sorry about that, i’ll make sure to get it next time. May I also tag you the next time I’m open?
No worries at all, as long as you learn from it, that is what we are all here for! You may definitely tag me next time, I am excited to see your improvements!
Feedback from EI-COL:
Transition was spot on with the 3000 feet.
When I requested inbound you never gave me a pattern entry. You just cleared me for the option. I needed a pattern entry, so you should have said “Enter right downwind runway 6R” followed by clearing me for the option.
When you cleared me for the option the first time you just have told me this “EI-COL number 1 runway 6R cleared for the option, after the option, make right traffic. You should have said this because I had just joined the pattern.
On the runway change you should have given me a pattern entry instead of sequencing me behind someone else. I could have gone left or right because you never told what downwind to enter.
You told me a “Your already cleared to land avoid unnecessary reports” I’m not sure why you did this as I never said anything to you. Might have been a mistake but if not it was completely unnecessary.
You need to say “Frequency changed approved, good day” if I’m leaving your airspace, which I was.
You have a lot to learn. I recommend watching this video organized by Tyler Shelton himself. This will help get an idea on what your supposed to say and do for Tower and Ground:
Also look at this area in the ATC manual:
Thank you very much. I do believe somebody called on final when I had given them landing clearance, might’ve been a mistake. I’ll be sure to check it out. Thanks for popping by. (May I also tag you the next time I’m open)
(18:29:49) When I was Inbound, you just cleared to land. Next time give a pattern entry for inbound aircraft and runway change and later the clearance.
(18:35:52) Missing sequencing. (Number 2 traffic to follow is on right downwind).
Missing ecit runway command.
That’s all, see you next time!
Thanks so much for the feedback, I’ll be sure to apply it to the next time I control
Sure thing, feel free to tag me!
Sure thing I’ll swing by
