VRC Runway Labels?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm just dipping my toes into the ATC water. I just sent to ZNY my practice clearances for EWR (pray you will see me on EWR_DEL soon! )

 

Meanwhile, I have been playing around with VRC in observer mode and trying to get a handle on most of the functions of the program. However, when I loaded the sector file for EWR, i noticed that everything was there but the runways weren't labeled (4L, 22R etc.) Is there any way to turn on these labels?

 

And any tips you guys may have for me would be greatly appreciated.

 

Have a good day and I hope to soon be giving clearances to some of you

Joe,

 

While it may seem helpful now, I can [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ure you that within 1-2 hours of working live traffic at EWR you will not need runway labels. Always have an airport diagram on hand so you can give taxi instructions, but the runways themselves will jump up into your memory faster than you might think.

Hi, heres a tip a fellow ATC gave me, you dont really have to memorize the taxiway labels, just go to View and check Static Text, that should turn on the letters for the taxiways, but the runway labels are unavailable

 

Bryan,

That tip working depends on the taxiway labels being defined in the sector file - that may not be the case in the file Joe's trying to use.
