Hey @SWAviator I was (OK-LOL) and here is my feedback

  • The transition was too high at 3,000ft, it should have been 2, 500feet. The formula is 2,500feet + airport elevation then round it up to the nearest 500.

  • The exit runway was late, it should be at around 70-80 knots.

Otherwise, great job! Feel free to tag me next time you open!

Awesome, thanks!

Yeah I’m still new to the transitions, so thanks for the formula!

As for the runway exit, I was taught around 60 but 70-80 also makes sense, so thanks for the tip 👍 👌

To be fair the elevation irl is 151 feet which makes it 2651 (rounded to 3,000) 😉

I understand it’s different in IF though 😂

It’s really what the controller prefers at this point, you just don’t wanna go below 60 or above 80 I personally prefer 70-60kts more so… I wouldn’t say you were wrong there.

Hey there I’ll be giving feedback just give me a quick sec!

Feedback :D

Great Session! But there are just a couple things from me!

  1. While telling an aircraft to pushback make sure to tell them what runway they will be pushback so the aircraft knows where to stop kinda like this.

“G-BLUE Pushback Approved. Expect Runway (Any).”

  1. While I was exiting the runway. Maybe just next time, (You don’t have to this every time but here is an example)

“G-BLUE Exit runway when able. Cross runway (Whatever runway) and contact ground on the taxiway.”


All in All Great session my friend! I hope to see you as a ATC controller some day! Just a bit more practice and studying! And you’ll get there in no time!

I’m also a recruitment for IFATC! So who knows maybe we’ll both be controllers some day!

Whew that was a lot! Have a great Day/Night @SWAviator! Tag me next time you are open!
Until then cya!
