Shoutout to NZAA ATC

╭─━━━━━━━━ ★,。・: :・゚☆ 。・: *:・゚★─━━━━━━━━╮

Tonight it would be Auckland ATC,
Thank you for the service and looking after me,
And the hundreds of others in the air and on the ground,
Keeping everybody so safe and sound.

Tonight it’s Qatari flight no. 921,
Heading off to Doha in the early Kiwi sun,
And thanks to your skills we have seamlessly begun.

Top precision and controlling always neat,
Showing us your skills and you never missed a beat.
The service you provide and nobody can hide,
Your skills and knowledge that keeps the virtual skies alive.

So thank you once again all team IFATC,
Appreciated, skilled and top quality,
Keep doing what you’re doing 'cos you’re doing it best,
Always well received and extremely impressed.

Good times.

A wonderful poem as always, Helmethead.
Honored to be one of the IFATC on the controlling end of one of your poems once again. Always a pleasure to provide service :)

just took off from NZAA and what a great service we all got. this is my first time on the expert server and i have to say, my mind was put to ease. A lot of traffic and a lot of controlling to do but everyone was patient. true pros.

thanks guys

Took off out of NZAA about 5 hours ago bound for Brisbane. Constant stream of arrivals, and yet the tower controller still managed to get everyone out and it was only a 15 minute wait.

Superb job, @Ray_Wang

Like Cign said, you’re also my new favourite person on the forum lol. We IFATC appreciate it very much- NZAA was especially busy that night. Controlling tower was fun but a challenge at the same time. I’m sure @Olivier999 @Enrique_Fernandez appreciate this too as they were my radar counterparts during that time period, 1500z-1600z. 😃

One thing I do want to mention if anyone looks here, please please please exit the runway as quick as you can in the busy airports(if you’re told to expedite) spacing is limited and often aircraft could have taken an earlier exit but they choose to taxi down the runway at 35knts for the next one. This can cause spacing for two departures to go down to one, very inefficient.
