What’s the record number of ATC on the expert server? Just out of interest.
Man nobody has time to keep track of that! 😂
Not nice to assume someone’s gender… tisk tisk Brandon
Have you stopped the party since New Years?
Quitters never win and winners never quit… a lesson you weren’t taught it appears
Nope I wasn’t thought it
What’s the highest you’ve seen?
Are you looking for most number of frequencies open, # of controllers, or operations?
Either way we can guess on #1 and #2. Gary wins 2017 with operations.
Most number of freq open
According to my data, the most was around 28. We had multiple airports fully staffed.
Wow that’s amazing! Was that an event or soemthing?
No just a busy weekend. I think it may have been a FNF.
If I remember correctly it was Hawaii. We almost had every airport open.
Correction we did have every facility open.
Thats right. I think we threatened a few people in Slack to control that day.
Ah okay, what does slack mean (or do u mean people who weren’t doing anything)
Slack is an online messaging/chat tool. Many VAs and IFATC use it to communicate between members.
We use it to ask questions on situations, announce when we open/close, coordinate runway crossings with other controllers, alert controllers to ghosting complaints, the occasional joke may be seen every now and then.
Ah wow, that all seems very ordered, we never see how much work atc really do for us!
It is quite impressive on a Friday Night Flight to see the coordination between controllers. Tower asking for more space from approach to get the pilots on the ground out. Gary coming up with new approach patterns and where to hold people. Ground coordinating with Tower on when to cross planes.
Would like to but I can’t due to the fact I’ve been ghosted last month…
