spacing aircraft

Hi there.

When controlling, how much space are you suppose to have:

  1. Between aircrafts taking off;
  2. Between aircraft taking off and landing (I.e. If ai’ve got a plane below 4/5 mile final, is it still okay to clear a plane for T/O, or at which point is it unsafe to do so?)

Many pilots usually tend to be so un patient - the minute the guy in front is off the ground, they want to be cleared for T/O. I know also that the bigger the plane, the bigger the wait because of wake turbulence.

Thanks for thé help
