MaxSez: This is not a TS-1 complaint just a suggestion. Had an interesting TS-1 uncoordinated Approach into Heathrow a few minutes ago.
The interchange between me, Approach & Tower was a comedy act. I was laughing so hard I went missed!
I’m fully versed in the nature of TS-1 and those who man it.
Being a helpful soul I wanted to PM the apparent Fledgling actors involved to discuss this vaudeville. There ID where not of record. Let me suggest that those who man ATC training position be required to join the Forum and have a Comm address established. Suggest a Reprogram, a Controlled Access sign in ID /Pin into the system for access to TS-1 ATC positions forthwith. The ability to ID all members who flit about the platform Is of critical organizational importance. Just saying!
(Based on feedback: To be clear, the purpose of this suggestion is to facilitate Controlled Access to the Controller training node, facilitate PM Communication and Accountability for TS-1 Controllers in training Only. It has no impact on IFATC or Pilots in general. Please read the commentary closely.)
