Come fly into ZAB on Sunday, June 25th between 20:00zand 202:30z to try

and BUST ZAB at KPHX! ZAB has put some amazing effort on the

controller side to provide you with almost continuous ATC services,

and we figured we'd like to challenge pilots to see if they could make

us cry Uncle! The first week ZAB put up 159 hours of ATC, and in the

second week we anticipate another strong show of at LEAST 100 hrs.

We'd like to challenge pilots to put enough tin across KPHX runways to

equal or exceed the number of hours we controlled. Eg, if we get 250

hours of ATC on center, we're challenging pilots to land or take off

and land at KPHX least 250 times.

 

You up to the challenge?

You'll need another 45 minutes to an hour if you're wanting us to have a chance to beat 250hrs Optimal arrival rate for PHX is 76 a/c per hour in VFR conditions landing West, so 250 aircraft / 76 aircraft per hour is approx 3.29 hours. If we do it in less time than that, the FAA would like to have a word on why the real-world can only do 76/hour under ideal conditions

*edit* if it's until 02:30Z, then we have a chance

Nope, it's 'till 2230z. 2.5hrs

It's why we called it "Bust ZAB".

 

Oh, wait...I see: You are making excuses for pilots becasue you guys don't think you can do it can you?

Well Fred,

 

As I love a challenge, I'm going to ask the rest of the ZOTSOT (ZLA OTS Terrorism Special Operations Team) crew to come pay you guys a visit!

Cheers!

 

Not sure if I should be quaking Your reputation as instigators of "fun" makes me think I should be worried In all seriousness, ought to be fun to get some ZOTSOT attention over in ZAB!

One, it was a joke. Two, why are you abbreviating abbreviations? That's why I said it should be ZLAOTSTSOT, as ZLA and OTS are already abbreviations.

 

And WHY is abbreviation such a large word!!! I tell ya what

Oh I'm sorry . . . actually not really. . . that YOU took what I wrote as something being serious, and that you had to defend your post by indicating it as a joke.

 

What gave you the impression that I didn't understand it was a joke?

 

I was simply clarifying for you.

What would you be sorry about? For that matter, why would you even say that?

What gave you the impression that I didn't understand it was a joke?

Because everything you post on here is serious.

I was simply clarifying for you.

If you knew it was a joke, why did you feel the need to clarify it for me.

 

 

eh?

Dang Canadians.
