Before I control I will always check into this great app called Windy to check the NOTAMs for the airport I am going to control. I like to keep it as realistic as possible. Should I follow them?
It’s hard to get 1/2 of the people on the T1 server to listen so when they spawn at the gate directly next to the closed RW and ask for pushback they don’t tend to like like that I tell them to taxi to the other RW. Also, they don’t like crossing RWs when they can see no one is lined up and waiting. It can become a cluster real fast with inbound traffic and people not listening.
