Hello, I was N458WU! Here’s my feedback:
So what I found your main issue today was your sequencing. Many of your mistakes would have been resolved if you used sequencing.
Basically, what sequencing is is to instruct a pilot to follow another aircraft. For example, “N458WU, number 3, traffic to follow is on left downwind”. What that means is that N458WU will follow the aircraft on left downwind, and would be number 3 to land.
When you instruct sequencing instructions, you then have no need to instruct the pilots to adjust speeds, extend downwind/upwind, etc… Pilots would do all the work for you… you just have to carefully monitor or adjust if for some reason you need to give specific instructions otherwise.
Another good reason for sequencing was when I was on final with PUKEJACK. PUKEJACK turned base early multiple times, and you had them go-around. If you were to sequence PUKEJACK to follow me, he would have not turned base in front of me.
You didn’t give me an exit runway command as well.
Overall, there’s still a lot to work on. But this was your first session on your tracking thread, and you did fairly well! Feel free to ask any questions if you have any, and good luck becoming IFATC!
