New York ATC

Kudos to the controllers at JFK right now, over 140 aircraft inbound! I was landing at JFK in a TBM-930 from BOS and they did a great job vectoring, especially since I was the only turboprop in their airspace and I was going 180kts😂 Anyways, awesome controlling by them! Also thank you to whoever opened up HFD for a short time, which I guess is my second home base aside from BDL🤙

Even though I’m not currently controlling at those airports we really appreciate it when people thank us for controlling. :)

Yes, I was landing there a couple hours ago - it was pretty hectic :)

The tower half an hour ago was great. He really threaded the needle though…

Perfect timing on clearance for takeoff

The ATC are really doing a fantastic job 🎉
Seems like the controllers are using the Canarsie Visual for 13L… nice

It seems that they are…loving the realism by the controllers!

I doubt they ignored you, as they were very busy they may have forgotten about you but that is even doubtful.

Thanks pal, I signed off after 2:30. Very relived. I was running 3-4nm spacing which is really really tight. Glad you enjoyed the approach into runway 04R I believe. We were running the 13L approach which was a blast. Looked so cool with 6 airplanes lined up on a 10nm base. Will most likely I open later and run it myself if the winds permit.

Thanks,
Ethan

I remember seeing you on approach only because your current username is my old one😂

I’m pretty sure you were the one controlling when I was landing. You did a great job! We all appreciate you using your time to control for us.

Wow. That’s what JFK should look like in real life at this time of day and towards the evening! For once, IF Expert Server looks like real JFK!

Agreed, kudos to the controllers. Not only dealing with busy airspace in a realistic way, but also coping with pilots who don’t understand the visual approach into the 13s. Really enjoyed my approach and landing there just now.

Not just the 13s but any runway at JFK😂 There was someone on approach for 4R that seemed like he had no idea what he was doing, he didn’t have many flight hours so probably wasn’t too experienced . Most likely not a good idea to fly into JFK unexperienced😕

Although I don’t control an expert server I like seeing that at Tokyo International

Wow, wonderful job!

The expert controllers do a great job vectoring busy airspace
