  1. I would also ask for souls and fuel on board, when they have a spare moment.
    In other cases is wise to ask for fuel, but on this case is obvious the a/c has enough fuel on board since he is departing.


    Probably the pilot need to use the jettison system or fly for at least one hour or maybe more to waste the extra fuel and get back safely to the ground; this is in those cases were weight is over landing-weight.

    When declaring an emergency, fuel should be given in time remaining. When FOB information is relayed to ARFF, sit should be given in pounds or gallons, not time remaining.


    *edited for accuracy, thanks for pointing that out... hadn't yet taken my head out of the sand this morning.

  2. Just to throw this out here... but it doesn't help when VA's get shut down that have a major hub in your airspace [e.g. Northwest, FedEx]. We saw much more traffic from these guys when they were still an entity and not individual guys who decide to do a NW leg. I am aware that virtual NW does exist to some extent, but traffic did take a big hit when these guys went down. Memphis without NW and FedEx = ghost town.

  3. Apparently not -

  4. how do you get a callsign? I want to "observe" the salt lake area but I dont know how.

    For observing, I would say use the area you are observing, in this case Salt Lake [ZLC], your initials [AS], and since you're observing [OBS]. Put em together and you get ZLC_AS_OBS or just ZLC_AS. This type of callsign seems to be the norm for people observing, but you can use whatever you'd like as long as it's not vulgar or disruptive to ATC.

  5. It is now Feb. 10, 1500z and the site is down, at least for me.
