Hi everyone, I want to make a ATC Tracking Thread because of my failed IFATC exams (A lot of people told me to do it after this post)
Thanks for being there!
unfortunately, i couldn’t be trained on sequencing but thanks for being there!
Thanks for the ATC, shame we didn’t get a little more traffic but it comes and goes like that
Would you like feedback here or via PM? Overall a good effort, don’t give up and it will all come together i’m sure
I prefer you feedback here. And thanks
Ok, here you go…
Ground control all good
You gave a good pattern entry and clearance option for my runway change request
Good use of the exit runway left and hold short instruction to allow for a departure on 04L
Don’t be afraid to clear an aircraft for the option earlier, don’t leave it until an aircraft is on base or final. Its best to sequence and/or clear an aircraft earlier so they know who to follow and then clear them
If an aircraft is remaining on the same runway for pattern work you don’t need to issue a ‘make left/right traffic ‘ each time they perform a touch & go, just Clear them for the Option
Hope that helps!
Okay, thanks! I’ll do better next time
I closed cuz there were nobody
There wasn’t any people
I’m tracking your ATC thread but I haven’t had time to fly when you’ve been active. Keep posting and try to stick to training even if it means imagining bizarre scenarios that could arise as a controller while waiting for someone to pop up. Keep at it and good luck.
Yeah, I always wait for people but after one hour, I had to do other things so I closed the ATC. There are often people when I control around 2200Z-0000Z
CLOSED (LAST AIRPORT WAS EDDL)
Thanks for being there!
Yes! I’ll come.
Alright, I saw a couple of wrong things. (I was CG-004)
First of all, I’m sorry for my bad flying skills. I don’t know what happened there.
You told that other plane in the pattern to “Maintain slowest practical speed”
This is really not necessary because when you are sequencing someone it’s their responsibilty to maintain seperation.
You need to clear me faster, that’s why I announced my position. Try to clear someone when he is on downwind or even crosswind.
You told that plane in the pattern to “Turn base”, this isn’t needed since you sequenced me behind him so I need to keep separation. Trust your pilots.
You also told a departing plane to maintain heading until at or above 3000 feet. In my opinion, this was unnecessary because there wasn’t a lot of traffic.
You gave a transition altitude way too high (4000 feet), You need to give a transition altitude around: Airport Level + 2500’. In this case it would be around 3000 feet.
I have a really bad memory, so if I said something wrong, apologies… and please, say it to me.
Try to work on these remarks, and you’ll get there in no time!
Have a good day!
Yeah, I did that because there was a plane on the runway and I told him « I’ll call your base » because I know he was going to turn base quickly and, i don’t know why, he made a 360.
You’re right, I didn’t know if I had to sequence AND clear to land/ for the option.
Otherwise, you’re right for the other mistakes. I should train in these things. Thanks for being there :)
In this case, you should give him an “extend downwind” - command.
And yes, you need to sequence and land.
A sequence is given to the pilot to know who to follow.
When do I have to use the « I’ll call your base » command?
Normally, you shouldn’t use that command. I think it’s only in really rare cases that you’re using it, but I don’t know which ones.
Okay, thanks for the information. I’ll always use this command
