Showing Appreciation for IFATC

OK, so I just got my Grade 3 roughly a week ago, and this was my first event on the Expert server. I participated in the FNF Swish Soiree, and I just want to show my HUGE appreciation for the controllers in Zurich. The approach was beautiful, gave me on time and accurate vectors, and seperates us (other pilots) wonderfully. Not trying to disrespect any other ATC, but I am VERY impressed with the Expert controllers. 10/10 <3

Considering they are IFATC, I would hope so! Nevertheless, I’m in IFATC, but approach controlling seems like a hectic job, kudos to all of those approach controllers!

Wow, such nice and beautiful words that you use. We really need to appreciate these guys as they spend hours off of there day doing contributing for pilots on IF Pro, you have to appreciate topics like these as opposed to ghosting complaints and hate for our controllers.

Dear lord that’s an immense amount of traffic. It’s a marvel how controllers can control but more importantly: effectively manage such high volumes of aircraft. Huge thank you to all IFATC members, and on behalf of all expert server pilots: we truly appreciate the time you put into making our flying experience much better.

Would like to give a huge thanks to @Karl.Luebs and @zenneth for some incredible ATC work on approach and tower at Zurich respectively. Personally I was working ground, incredible work from the whole IFATC team!

Agreed, Zurich Approach was great and so was Geneva Approach… sadly I came in during the non peak hours…

I came quite early as well, it was really nice though. I got ATC at both LSGG and LSZH.

I just have to tell you that you did a tremendous job yesterday. The amount of traffic in Zurich was comparable to a high traffic day back when regions were a thing. Amazing.
Just amazing. Thanks a lot!
