Respect for this man for handling Heathrow for 12 hours. In that time you could do so many things. But he decided to control Heathrow on training. Respect.

It’s not all lost. I can now say “you weren’t cleared for takeoff please exit the runway” in a second, and I know where that button is in a split second 😅 thanks for the kind words.

My deepest respect. And most importantly you’re alive, and hopefully in mentally stable condition :)

If you could handle all the stress of controlling Heathrow and more in Training Server, where there is no person who does anything with trolls, you should consider joining the IFATC team…

I hope you’re still alive, mentally, after that madness.

Bro I need your patience, I can’t control LHR on ES and not loose brain feels and contemplate reporting everybody just because they don’t like they’re assigned runway 💀, give this man a medal

I can apply on the 4th of September. I may apply for IFATC. The ATC was easy, the staying up was challenging.

I wouldn’t survive a 12 hour ATC shift even if I had toothpicks to keep my eyes open like Mr. Bean

Fun fact I actually did this with matches on the last 20 mins. But we don’t tell anyone about that.

I believe 12 is the max. If it’s not you know exactly what I’m doing.

It was very tiring. I did it at night and I’m in the UK, it meant there wasn’t much traffic later on. This meant I didn’t have anything to do. And I kept fading in and out of sleep every 20 seconds. I did make it eventually! Luckily. Once I woke up I didn’t remember anything until about 3am ish. So I might’ve gone to hell and back but I don’t remember. Lucky me🥳!

As others mentioned before: this was a tough ride. Great you did it well. But always keep in mind: its just a game and health is always over fame. Keep it in mind :). See you soon on IFATC.
