Events getting too unrealistic


Recommended Posts

Andreas, last night at KLAS we were getting release times. They were all spaced out 20 min apart for departures to PHX. On arrival it looked like 5nm spacing for arrivals. I used to control years ago at ZTL and just watching things I felt they were being pretty conservative on the departure side of the operation but were running a good arrival op.

And then there was today’s FNO at KATL, 50+ departures,  240+ arrivals, 28 controllers, not a step over, clean descents and vectors, I was lined up with 3 other guys in final. To ZTL, freakin awesome

I stopped flying events a few years ago because of the unrealistic congestion. I now look at the vatusa calendar and fly as far away from the events as possible.

It might be a chance, though. Maybe that's a good opportunity to discover other places on VATSIM that previously did not get the attention they deserved. There is also some good ATC and scenery covera

Agreed ... the 20 minute spacing for departures out of LAX seemed extreme, but given the fact that the arrival streams were full, I think the departure spacing was warranted. I thought it was well done, overall.

That could be Ross. But PHX was west ops landing 26 and 25L. 25R should've been firing off the departures with min spacing allowed. Not sure why they were in a ground stop. Granted I don't know the airspace all that well out in that part of the country....

Yeah, I was only commenting on the ground stops at other airports like LAS, for departures bound for PHX.
