Things I noticed

  • Pushback back approved, forgot to tell me what runway to expect
  • WiFi issues maybe, delay of response to some requests
  • Clearances for the option/to land should not be given on short final if the pattern is empty
  • You do not need to wait for pilot’s to report position before issuing clearance
  • An aircraft requested takeoff while I was on a 5nm final, that was plenty of space, you could of cleared that aircraft for takeoff.
  • Sequencing, When you have more then one aircraft in the pattern, sequencing is your friend: check this tutorial out
  • You gave me the exit runway way too late, you should really issue it after touch down, and the pilot has control.
  • When you announce closing in, make sure you actually close in that time.
  • Also, you should try to always be open for an hour, that way traffic will have time to build up.

Thinking about doing some patterns in a DC-10… got a landing comp. soon, might be a good opportunity to practice. :P

“Expect runway …” actually should not be used everytime. It should be used if the controller deems it necessary for the aircraft to face a particular way for pushback to promote efficiency. It should not be used for every pushback clearance.

I know you posted that 21 days ago but I wanted to make sure the controller knew when and when not to send that command.
