Can someone please tell me how the ATC operations are counted and recorded.
Every “cleared for takeoff” or “cleared to land” on Tower I believe counts as an op.
Adding on to Nate, all approach clearances & servicing aircraft through RV/FF counts as operations as well;
The full story on this I don’t recall every seen published, only some pointers. But indeed not all instructions will count as an Operation. Like Nate, I’ve also read it’s the clearance instructions, and Tyler did a note on this once. See above.
In Tyler’s post there’s nothing mentioned on Ground ATC operations, but I’m quite positive Ground ATC does build Ops as he/she is controlling.
OP requested closure
