  1. Hi Bruno, No, unfortunately not. In the post you are quoting, I try to explain why. Kind regards, Martijn
  2. Prior to entering the CTR. You can find the layout on the proper chart. Martijn
  3. Ofcourse, but some map-study in advance will make the 'surprise' much easier to deal with, in case you are unfamiliar with a particular apprioach. To be honest (but speaking after only 130+ hours on a CTR position), more than 90-95% of all pilots have no troubles understanding the 'after ARTIP...' instructions.
  4. Thankfully, these waypoints are displayed on the EHAM STAR overview. In most cases, we use SPL, SPY or PAM after the IAF. Depending on traffic, we try to issue the 'after IAF waypoint' well in advance. When in doubt, speak up, radar vectors are always an option. Martijn
  5. I didn't mention source control... What would you need (basics only)? - VATSIM data: aircraft type, ades, adep, flight rules, callsign - table with aircraft and their dimensions - table with gates: lat/long, max width, max length, Schengen yes/no, cargo yes/no, GA yes/no, specials (police helicopters etc) And some more advanced: - real life parking positions (Schiphol is kind enough to provide this 24/7), however, they use flightnumbers - tool to translate callsign to flightnumber (paid service) - table with airline specific gates. For example, BAW uses the
  6. Not only that, but gate assignment is just one (small) part of a bigger part. It is simply impossible to 'take out' one specific part. I didn't design the code with this in mind. Besides that, in several places I use personal keys (for example Google Maps), but also commercial keys. It would be hassle to remove them. OTOH: I am always willing to explain how we solved some issues!
  7. Not really, developer here... This page is part of our gate assignment tools. Every minute I read the vatsim data, in order to find flights departing from, or flying to EHAM. Outbounds are easy: I compare the vatsim coordinates with the actual gate coordinates in order do determine the aircraft stand. Inbounds are a bit more complicated. Gate assignement is based on callsign, departure airfield (Schengen...), cargo/pax and aircraft type. First, the script will check if you use a real-life callsign. If so, the real life gate will be assigned, when available and suitable for your aircr
  8. @Aidan StevensThe datafeed (JSON) seems to be serving outdated data. Screenshot was taken seconds ago, 1833Z
  9. I can guarantee that traffic departing from the EHAA FIR to the UK will "never" have a 1000 SSR. To be honest though, I never check overflights. May I suggest that you ask NATS to join our 1000-club?? 🙂
  10. Hi, On my phone (Android&Chrome, latest update), some users have their names written in a color. However, some of these colors are impossible to read, especially when the screen's brightness is below 70%. Please see the attached screenshot. Would it be possible to change these colors? On the PC however, all names are written in white... Kind regards, Martijn
  11. @Mateusz Zymla The devil is in the details in EH-land. Based on (outdated?) real-life data, only flights departing from EHAM and EHRD can receive 1000, and then only flying to a specific set of airports. However, I am looking for a single-point of truth for this list. For example Germany: based on my list, the only destinations that are valid for 1000 are: 'EDDB', 'EDDF', 'EDDL', 'EDDM', 'EDDP', 'EDDV', 'EDDW'. According to your plugin, all German (ED) destinations seem to be fine. Another example: I understand that Poland has been accepting 1000 since 1 or 2 AIRACs ago. Ho
  12. Thanks, but I was hoping for a source with more 'authority'. I'll keep looking...
  13. @Andreas Fuchs 837251Where did you find this list? Really useful for Dutch VACC's SSR plugin...
  14. Is there something going wrong with the Charset? Image
  15. To be honest, when I control a CTR position, I never read flight plans, let alone RMKs. However, a simple 'unable' after receiving your arrival route, would trigger me to vector you through my sector. No problem at all. Martijn
  16. If you mean the departure time in your flightplan? It doesn't... This system is only being used during peak hours, and then only two types of time are important: - CTOTs for traffic that actually have one ('the lucky few' during CtP for example) - 'as soon as possible' for all other traffic The departure time in a flightplan would be rather meaningless in those cases. If a pilot really want to depart at a later moment, the controller can enter an RETD manually. The tool will obviously calculate a proper TSAT. And your 'edit question' is the other way around: if the situatio
  17. 1. RETD = RETD of last aircraft in sequence for the relevant runway + start-interval (usually 2 minutes) 2. TSAT = RETD - taxitime (And for event traffic with CTOT: RETD = CTOT) Please note that the system is also able to detect suitable gaps in the start sequence, so that it can 'squeeze' flights into those gaps. I also added one improvement after the last edition of CtP, a so called 'CTOT blocking mode': all booked CTOTs are unavailable as RETD for non-booked traffic, even if the booked flight is not online yet. The script will find and use all suitable gaps in the 'CTOT-sequ
  18. Dutch VACC uses a tool called 'Schiphol Planning Interface' (SPI). It consists of two main parts: a ES plugin, and a PHP backend, running on our webserver. I am the developer of the latter part. SPI has many tasks: gate assignment, TSAT/RETD/CTOT planning, EAT/hold planning, SSR assignment, route checking etc. The TSAT/RETD/CTOT planning works as follows: - Every minute I read the vatsim datafeed - Now I know which aircraft are at EHAM - Now I also know at which gate they are parked, based on lat-lon coordinates - Triggered by the plugin, I can calculate the 'taxi-time' betwe
  19. May I suggest to switch to Vatsim Connect? Martijn
  20. Hi Max, Perhaps I misinterpret your issue, but in my understanding SUPs don't facilitate the 'how to become an ATC process'. Please contact 'your' VACC for issues regarding the onboarding process. Martijn
