Thomas_Cunningham's ATC Tracking Thread - [OPEN] @ EGCC

I’m going to continue from here.

KSFO GTS open on Expert!

Wind: 03003KT
Departing Runways: 1L, 1R
Landing Runways: 28L, 28R


  • if you plan to do patterns, expect the 28s.
  • SSTIK5 DEP - 1L
  • TRUKN2 DEP - 1R
  • as always, be respectful to ATC and to other pilots.

Hope to see you there!

Hello, airports with 2 parallel runways are the ones that are highly recommended for pattern work. KBOI, KRDU, KJAC ,KAUS, WSSS and many more are great for pattern work

Thank you very much for the list! I agree that SFO doesn’t have a great layout when it comes to patternwork, so I’ll be sure to check out the list next time I open!

I would love to help! As @Jesus_Gutierrez said above, try to avoid sfo because it has intersecting runways and is a popular hub for “pilots” on the training server 😂. Please @ me the next time you open!


I’ll be sure to tag you!

Still controlling? I can stop by.

If that’s you still there, I notice your IFC name is not showing in the ATC display. It just says “Controller”. It would be better to change your settings so we see your name.

@Thomas_Cunningham just to confirm, you’re already in IFATC correct? Just curious as it appears there’s some confusion above. 😅

Holy cow I just realized I forgot to set the tag to show… Sorry about that y’all. I just closed down btw

Edit: I do have my tag on… so I’m not sure what went on… And yes I am in IFATC already.


I just did an inbound and T/G. Was that you in Tower. If so, you gave clearance before pattern entry which is backwards. Also a few other mistakes. If it was you, thanks for the ATC.

I didn’t know you could have a tracking thread when you were already in IFATC, haha. Also, this:

@David_Mullen were you the F-16? If so, sorry about that.

Nope. TBM call sign N76VT.

I see. That wasn’t me.

OK. I figured not. Please change OPEN to CLOSED as soon as you close your sessions. You had me doing unnecessary flying. No big deal.

I don’t recall seeing a TBM come in for patterns, so I’m confused as well

What server were you on?

Expert server

@David_Mullen what server were you on?

OK. I was on Training. So, you need to put RADAR in your tracking thread title if you are already in IFATC and are doing radar sessions.
