  1. Hi all. I'm from the VATeir division. I'm just trying to gather ideas and preferences to see how many similar ideas there are out there for these strip annotations. Thanks guys.
  2. Hi all The recent release of VRC 1.2 brings with it the facility to transfer all the data entered on the flight strip between controllers. This wonderful facility brings with it a requirement for standardisation between controllers for the efficient use of this data. In order to devise a regional standard for the use of the new transferable flight strip data, I'm asking for some information on what standards exist in real life for the use of flight strips. Also I'd like to elicit some opinions of as many vatsim controllers as can afford the time on what information you would like to se
  3. Who dismissed your question? You asked 2 senior members of the Training Department of VATeir, one of which was in Dublin tower and oversaw the operations of Dublin tower, and both clearly outlined the procedure for releasing aircraft for departure, as was done during your mentoring, so I don't understand your confusion. The procedure used in real life was very clearly explained to you more than once, yet you continue to post about not knowing this procedure on this forum, and by doing so, not giving a good impression of VATeir training. Hi Seamus I apologise to anyone in the VATeir Train
  4. It doesn't happen. As Ruth pointed out, there are times when an authorisation may need to be granted in advance of launching a plane, but actually calling up approach and saying "I've just told him to call you" is not done, and not needed. Approach will find out when the plane calls him. I don't really understand why you think that this needs to be done over a landline, and perhaps you could explain what part you're not getting so we can help give you a better explanation of why the system is the way it is. I can't imagine a situation where ATC would even WANT a call from another c
  5. Thanks for the information Jeff. However you have raised a question for me. In Jason's post earlier in the thread... He refers to the communication of the departure to DEP. I understand there may be no need to tell DEP the aircraft is airbourne as it's a "no brainer", but can you tell me if this communication does or does not exist in real life and in how many cases is there no communication of any kind from TWR to DEP at the handoff time. Also from APP to TWR please. In short, how is DEP informed the target has been "shipped" (from TWR), and how is TWR informed the aircraft has been "shipp
  6. I'm not quite sure what you're asking, Stephen. I think you are asking how controllers know aircraft have been transferred to another controllers frequency/sector inside the tower all the way up to approach...? Most facilities in the US use flight progress strips (which contain vital information about each aircraft) that are printed inside the facility and are p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed from one controller to another or in some cases, a combination of flight progress strips and DSP (Departure Spacing Program), which is an interface that allows controllers to "swipe" flight progress strips

  8. Maybe I am misguided? Can somebody provide me with details on real world procedures with regards to how pilots become transferred from ATC to ATC for Delivery, Ground, Tower and Departure/Approach Positions please. I have no real world aviation experience. Best regards Stephen
  9. Hi Ross, I'm don't mean going through the full 'radar identified' procedure, I'm using the software [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume and Handoff feature of the software to inform my colleagues when the aircraft has been told to contact them, and vice-versa. The problem I'm having is that some of my colleagues are actually refusing to accept the handoff because "tower doesn't have a radar" Thank you Matthew, your opinion is very valuable to me. Stephen
  10. In order to F4 handoff aircraft to adjacent controllers I find it easier to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume and then handff the item. Some of my colleauges are averse to this preference because _real_ tower controllers do not have radar's. What do you think? Am I crazy to try to use the software to it's best efficiency or simply misguided.!
