  1. For #FAAland:

    7110.65 3-9-10 is your friend here for the proper phraseology.

    (Aircraft) Runway (number), cleared for takeoff.


    When discussing the surface wind, it should go between the runway number and the clearance.

    "American One, Runway tree one right, wind two eight zero at eight, cleared for takeoff".


    Appending "immediate" is governed by 2-1-5a (Though immediate is moreso an ICAO approved language not specific in the .65):

    "a. Use the word 'immediate[ly]' only when expeditious compliance is required to avoid an imminent situation."


    Usage of "without delay" should be limited to taxi.

  2. I participated, there were quite a few AC back in 2014, the second attempt at it really went down in flames. It needs even more preparation and planning than Cross the Pond! Especially since most of the routes are ssssooooo long. Finding a way to limit it to 8 hour flights (somehow) would make more sense. There are lots of other crossings that could be cool though.

  3. As Polish person, I am so happy to see Warsaw in the list for first time ever! Very happy Polish person here now!! I think you know where I will be flying from!


    Really want to fly to Calgary but the problem is.....there is no P3Dv4 confirmed scenery available for Calgary so......any recommendation scenery for this airport?


    I have used the payware one that is out just fine in v4.2.

  4. ZOA did a fantastic job dealing with the weather and the vast amount of arrivals. It is great to have seen just how busy the past five or six FNOs have been! Weather can make them more fun (on both sides).

  5. I also just feel like Pittsburgh doesn't get too much love . Not even in a vatsim sense, but the history of the Airport.. one of the best layouts out there, yet it seems none of the major airliners want to invest in it.. it's nowhere near as busy as it could be!


    Too true, too sad. Really needs payware scenery

  6. Jonah,


    While ZDC does meet every one of your requirements, I would recommend looking at some of the smaller facilities that certainly need more controllers:

    ZID, ZLC, ZKC, ZOB and ZAU come to mind. I would check each facility's website and you can always send the facility staff any questions ([email protected] where XXX is the there letter ARTCC identifier).

  7. Yeah I also have the same problem for the same reason as Paul. I know a lot of the software available does not work well for those of us that need adaptive help and that most designers do not go into their UI production with such in mind as there are very few. So if you can do it Justin that would be great, if not its cool arrow keys exist for a reason!
