To All Oceanic Rated Controllers

Folks

We are about to start trialing a new web based Oceanic Controller Tool.

I am looking for volunteers who would be interesting in testing the beta product in order to feedback any issues you may come across when you are controlling.

If you are interested please email me at simon.irvine [at] vatsim.uk.co.uk for more details.

Thanks

Since Thomas Wand and I will be working a track on the next CTP we would like to apply for beta-testing the tool.

Hi Daniel,

Due to the high traffic levels and saturated frequencies beta testing is not something that will be done during the CTP as any problems will have catastrophic effects on the event.

It is now nearly two months since last information.

Just quick info:

First of all, project is still alive. There was small break during last few weeks because we had lost contact with our coding leader. Project will be resumed and more details on it published by Maciej soon.

Hello all,

Here's an update.

The project is making good progress again and our set release date for the public is 30th July 2013

2 weeks before the release date we will contact our beta testers and work closely with them to fix any issues.

We are in the possession of a domain name and a VPS.

We are still looking for a developer with knowledge of JavaScript and AJAX

Any questions about the project are welcome!

Steff

Dev Team Leader

Colin,

Due to technical difficulties, limited time and some other factors I am afraid to say that this system is not going to be finished for the next CTP. Its only me and Chris left with the project right now and we are starting everything from the first scratch, right now we are at proccess of creating a system requirment specification document to have a clear view of what we are working on.

Hopefully by end of 2013 we are going to start beta testing of the system.

      Hello all,
      I was finding a more realistic way to give out PDC's via text. I thought of using these two messages:
      .pdc1 .msg $aircraft $dep PDC: $aircraft CLRD TO $arr $deprwy via $sid INIT ALT: $alt squawk $asquawk ATIS $atiscode NO READBACK REQUIRED. If you're happy with this PDC, please verify by replying to this message, saying: "ACCEPT".
       
      If they reply with 'accept' then I send out this second message.

      .pdc2 .msg $aircraft Thank you, $aircraft. Contact $callsign on frequency $com when FULLY ready to push and start with stand number, ATIS info, aircraft type AND current QNH
      I preferably wanted all of the important information from the second message into the first message. However, I discover that euroscope has a word limit as to how long your messages can be.
      I'm wondering what you guys think of this procedure. Are vatsim pilots very responsive? As well, is there a way to automatically send out the second message by a somewhat means of detection from the pilot when he/she says 'accept'?
      I hope what I just said makes sense. 
       
      Many thanks!
