Hey guys! I currently like Approach ATC job the most! But, what is your favourite ATC job? Actually im expecting that a lot of you will say tower, or ground, but, who knows!
From my experiences, I would have to either agree with you or go with Tower. Something about sequencing planes is very exciting for me!
same! i love approach
I would agree with you along with tower. Without tower, you are not “officially” cleared for landing or takeoff.
Departure and approach
For me gourd is mine because it’s the easiest 😭😂
Got to go with departure it’s the most relaxing
Yeah tower is like running and never have a break
When an airport gets busy, I quite like the Ground frequency.
It allows me to actually see the aircrafts, and make sure they stay nicely apart from each other.
For this I often use the drone feature, check out the aircrafts and make sure pilots taxi on the taxi-ways. This can help to pick out the idiots in their over-sized aircrafts, trying to jump in front or other aircrafts and race through corners like they’re in some sort of go-kart.
I would say approach because all the vectors that lead you perfectly on the glide slope. And just to mention, IFATC is so professional that every frequency is exiting.
Personally, Tower is my favourite frequency. But as others have mentioned above if the airfield is busy, Ground would be my favourite as you’ll have slightly less task to do and you can see all of the aircrafts in the ground unlike in Tower imo
Tower is great. Especially on Expert. But it can get busy at times at large airports.
Approach - not at KLAX tho - well I personally love it cause I’m able to vector aircraft around and the best is to watch them land in the background while vectoring.
Same here!!! Love approach
love to control the tower. blah blah 123 cleared to land/takeoff. so much fun sequencing planes in to land and having planes take off. lots of pressure and timing. lots of fun.
just hate it when ground doesn’t cooperate and send planes to every single runway.
tips. it there are two runways(preferably green ones) use one for landing and the other one for takeoff. less holding short, less go arounds and therefore less shooting the gap.
I love Tower and Ground, especially when it is busy. Also, it puts a smile on my face when you actually remain in the pattern.
What else can I say.
I was going to choose approach but after all the stupid things I saw this morning, I now think T&G is better
So, I’m the only one who likes departure?
Firstly, thank you for spelling favourite the right way ;) and secondly, I prefer tower the most
