  1. I mean, if you arrive at an airport where pilots are all lined up for 26 and you are lining up for 8, then you are the one who needs to plan around the other airplanes. The uncontrolled environment is about working with each other and going with the flow. If for operational reasons you need a different runway, that's on you to stay out of the traffic flow until there's an opportunity for you to land how you need or want to. Aircraft on final has right of way over aircraft on the surface, however.
  2. In uncontrolled ops, whatever runway you want to use is operating That being said, right of way applies. In the US, that is defined by 14 CFR 91.113 - Right-of-way rules: Except water operations. Yeah, but it's not published for pilots. If they read the AF/D, there may be a calm wind runway noted, but that's going to be about it. For controllers flying in airspace they know on network, sure, but preferred configs have no bearing on uncontrolled ops. Err, I suppose the preferred wording is Airports Without Operating Control Towers, anyhow.
  3. Glad to hear it! When are we thinking this might be generally available? What's the transition plan look like? Will the new clients be backwards compatible? Will the old clients be backported?
  4. I'm not sure why the announcement folks are waiting for would even begin to address these particular grievances.
  5. You raise a good point -- Per UK law, an aircraft on the ground shall give way to aircraft in the air (as is the case in every country), so perhaps you might need a refresher. Adding to that some education on there generally not being such a thing as a "right" or "wrong" runway at an uncontrolled field.
  6. FORT HOUSTON LIVE #4!! Come join ZFW and ZHU as we host our busiest event of the year. Staffed Fields will include KDFW, KIAH, KDAL, KHOU, and many more!! 2300-0400z (1800-2300 CDT). A premier event which will see over 35 controllers congregating in Dallas, TX to control together for the evening. Let's just hope the internet doesn't crash like last year https://forums.vatusa.net/index.php?topic=7731.0
  7. And on VATSIM, we [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume all aircraft are RVSM capable since we don't have the ability to certify airframes or crew
  8. The short answer is no. You may be able to "make" it work using emulators, virtualization, or the like... but it's not going to be one-click by any means. Or even docomeented.
  9. Since there are no services that freely offer this (yet), then please explain why downloading and parsing the datafeed is ineffective and redundant? We have been doing this at ZLA for over a decade and it hasn't failed us yet... Because everybody has to retain full copies. Everybody is trying to replicate the source of truth with 2 minute slices, but every minor error results in additional loss of precision. It's great you've been doing it that long and it generally works, but it doesn't mean that it's the most correct solution to ever be implemented or that it can't be improved upon. Hav
  10. I have heard of data mirrors archiving the data but being unwilling to share it. I'm quite tempted to offer ARTCC resources as a mirror so we can offer a service like I'm asking for.
  11. Nope. You’ll have to do it like the rest of us. Download the data feed every 3-5 minutes P[Mod - Happy Thoughts] the data feed and add it to a database Calculate the user statistics from your database Which is highly ineffective and redundant given that we have mirrors that are already doing this. The status data is an awful way to manage this. I know the idstatus doesn't currently have the function... my hope is that there are plans for this (like I hear rumored that some regions and/or divisions are planning to offer) or some other mechanism that's not widely known. Anybod
  12. Other than s[Mod - lovely stuff]ing stats, is there a way to get monthly hour totals for user stats like I can on the stats page? I'm trying to automate my roster activity tracking.
  13. I know I'm very late in responding to this, but it's worth noting... NEXRAD isn't stored in GRIB/GRIB2. I spent most of my early career doing weather development. You'll see most of it in BUFR or NetCDF, which means wgrib2 is of no use. Also, if you're incorporating the data, wgrib2 is one of the least efficient manners to play with the data. Native grib2 libraries (or reading the spec and just dealing with it... it's only JPEG2000) are the correct route. First time I dealt with large quantities of GFS, I tried using wgrib2 and the -spread flag to get the data to a place where I could imp
  14. Is something up with the status data? http://status.vatsim.net is now redirecting to the pilot academy site.
