Welcome to @ribery_99 ATC Thread
(For departing aircraft: Unless you are flying patterns, please file your flight plan before contacting ATC.)
Please only use “Remaining in the Pattern” if you are planning on doing touch&gos/patterns! Otherwise, please use the “departing north, south, east, west" or "straight out” command.
Hey there! Please toss this in #atc, or a regular can move it for you. Thanks :)
I’ll swing by! Callsign: X-AE-AII
Hey there! A few things to note:
Spacing is EVERYTHING. Make sure to work on that, as I wasn’t even off the runway, and the XCub was landing, and when I was landing for the first time for the TnG, there were on the runway with me when you told them to go around.
Just some simple but critical things to note, other than that you were good! :)
Thank you for your feedback. I was really struggling a bit with spacing because the XCub turnt base very fast.
Hello, K708NP here, are aircrafts landing on the other side of the runway?
Yes, they don’t answer ATC. Sorry for that
No problem, I just saw them when I was taking off, luckily I could dodge them
Hello, I was K708NP and here’s my feedback:
- Good ground control.
- I could take off at when Air Force has begun rolling. In the manual, it’s quoted: “Anticipation is encouraged and should be used when appropriate, for example if a Boeing 737 has already been cleared for take-off and is rolling, rather than issuing a LUAW (line-up and wait) clearance to the next aircraft, ask yourself if issuing a take-off clearance is appropriate based on the assumption that the first aircraft will be airborne by the time the second aircraft is ready to roll” Source: https://infiniteflight.com/guide/atc-manual/3.-tower/3.1-separation 3.1.4
- As you already told me which direction I’m gonna do the pattern work, no need to tell me again in the clearance (“K708NP, cleared for the option runway 05R,
after the option, make right traffic”)
- When issuing a exit clearance, you could also say to the aircraft to either hold short or cross a runway when you’re sure that the aircraft must cross that runway.
Nothing else to say, I hope you’ll work on these mistakes and I hope to see you soon as IFATC!
Thanks for the feedback. I‘ll try to improve the anticipation a bit more.
Or, if you have a long line of departures, you could say to the aircraft(s) you’ll call its/their base. But in my case, it wasn’t needed.
Yes, once I had to do this
