Server: Training
Frequencies: Ground & Tower

NOTAM’s when open: GA aircraft at discretion dependent on the airport. Pattern work allowed. If using ILS, RNP, GPS, VOR, NDB for approaches, file flight plan. Additional NOTAM’s posted below.

Will do. I might open KSNA in around an hour. Only concern about the airport is KLAX traffic trying to come over and land.

Thanks for the pattern work!

Feedback: CF-TFC

  • Transition altitude was incorrect at 3000ft, the correct transition altitude is 3500ft. To calculate transition altitude, take airport elevation 744ft + 2500ft = 3244ft. Round that to the nearest 500ft increment and 3500ft would be the correct transition altitude
  • Pattern entry, when called inbound, was good
  • Clearance was good with appropriate traffic direction
  • Clearances + sequences were good
  • “Extend downwind” command was unnecessary. When you sequence aircraft, it is the pilot’s responsibility to maintain minimum separation requirements when in the pattern
  • “adjust speed” command was also unnecessary. Again when a sequence is issued it is the pilot’s responsibility to maintain minimum separation
  • G/A with F-ANCY was caught however it was a close call as I was really close to the runway threshold

Good job today. Let me know if you have any questions.

Till next time!

I rounded down to 3000 😤. My math skills are bad. Thanks for letting me know! Also, appreciate you letting me know the separation requirements. Cheers!

Hi! From F-ANCY:

I agree with much of what Arian said above.

  • It is the pilot’s responsibility to maintain separation from the other aircraft in the pattern, so the “extend upwind” and “extend downwind” commands were not unnecessary.

  • On my first landing, you cleared me for the option and then gave me a “make left traffic,” but that isn’t needed since it was in the takeoff command. Not a big deal, just something to take note of.

  • Good job catching the G/A, albeit it was a little late.

Overall, great job today and let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for having me!

Thanks for coming! I definitely learned the separation requirements, appreciate that. Also, the go-around I agree that I was late and needed to focus on the go-around more than the pattern entry of Benji.

Yes! Keep in mind that your practical will have 7 pilots flying in the pattern, so make sure to try and anticipate the scenarios.

Have you gotten a trainer yet?
