Sequencing

Hey all

Before i start, this is not a rant thread looking to bash people.

I thought it might be useful to quickly run through sequencing when on a Tower Controller’s frequency. If there isn’t a radar controller covering your inbound destination, a tower controller will give you a pattern entry point followed by a sequence (if there are aircraft ahead of you).

If youre told you are “number 2, traffic to follow is on Left DW”, please take the time to identify which aircraft you are following in the seq. It is the pilot’s responsibility to maintain separation with other aircraft in the sequence, if you ignore this and aim straight for the rwy, you will just increase the likelihood of a “go around” or a warning/report. Inbound traffic runs much more smoothly when we work together.

I hope this is useful

Thanks :)
