All good brother thanks for the atc!
For example, SWA, DL, and AAL are all coming in for landing. You tell the Southwest, Number 1, cleared to land. Then you tell the Delta, number 2, cleared to land. You don’t clear the AAL. The Southwest lands. You don’t need to notify the Delta, he can just continue on to land. However, when you clear the American, because Delta is now number 1, you would clear the American as number 2.
Hope that’s a better explanation ;)
@Sean_Murphy Thanks for stopping by!
Not a problem! Glad I could help you! You actually did really well in my opinion, although me on the other hand, I need to work on my attack-like approaches lol!
Attention: runway change! Here’s the new runway info:
Patterns will still most likely be performed on 01L.
I wasn’t able to fly for you today, but from the questions you asked above, I’ll send you my Golden Rules for Air Traffic Controlling on IF.
You will see ‘golden rules’ applied in the IFATC tutorial videos on YouTube. Check out these video’s. You’ll learn a lot!
- Watch aircrafts on your platform. Good Ground control is important. Use hold position and give way instructions. Give way instructions are sometimes given before a taxi instruction.
- Understand the concept of the Pattern. Know your departure, crosswind, downwind, base and final legs.
- every new inbound always first gets a pattern entry instruction, to inform the pilot how he should approach
- Every runway change always first gets a pattern entry instruction
- “ sequencing is your friend ”. Very important. It is used to tell pilots who to follow.Re-sequence if this helps to provide clarity. Extend downwind, I’ll call your base, and speed instructions are not meant for sequencing. Use sequence instructions, as many and as often as is needed.
- Use I’ll call your base, to delay the base turn of an inbound aircraft. Apply this to create space to allow outbound aircrafts to depart, or to avoid clashes with other aircrafts.
- aircrafts remaining in the pattern get a touch and go with an exit turn direction. This is needed only once. After this, the pilot will assume the same exit direction (number 1, cleared for the option, after the option make left traffic).
- Timely clearance for landing or for the option
- landed aircrafts all get a runway exit instruction . Know your exit procedures
- an inbound aircraft only gets one (1) landing/option clearance.
Send me a direct message if you have questions.

Thank you to the people who gave me feedback on my ATC performance! I certainly learned a lot today about how I can improve my controlling. Thanks!
