Recommended Posts

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.

Hi guys,

Just to keep you updated on how this project is cooming along. We now have a codding team which is created out of 6 people that have applied to help with this.

I am pleased to say that Paul Williams(907674) is now the codding leader with me staying on a position of the project leader.

The project is now being codded using CodeIgniter PHP Framework as a core for the CMS with Bootstrap CDN hosted style sheet to style the website.

Team Members:

  • Maciej Olborski(1066926)(Project Leader)
  • Steff Missot(1140732)(Codding Leader)
  • Michal Fira(1117392)

  • Daniel Plumb(1203457)
  • Louis Hacking(1219693)
  • Samuel Devey(1238610)

ALL PEOPLE LOOKING TO BETA TEST THE SYSTEM READ BELOW

If you are interested in beta testing NAECS when it's ready for this stage please drop me an e-mail to email@maciejolborski.net including your:

  • Full Name
  • VATSIM CID

People who are looking to join beta testing team have to be at least C1 rated and oceanic vaildated.

Regards,

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.

      Just a slight query related to the above:
      I was fortunate enough to partake in a weeks worth of work experience with NATS recently, and while at whitely on the ADC sims, I heard the following phraseology being used "G-ABCD, Cleared to enter controlled airspace via Route A, at or below altitude 2000 feet, QNH 1014."
      Upon asking one of the pseudo-pilots about the change, I was told it is "new phraseology" can anyone else confirm whether this is the case? Apparently, it was put in place after some confusion from pilots after receiving a "not above" clearance.

      Just reading the new sid charts , am I right in saying hand offs are going to LONDON or SCOTTISH  and not radar as no mention of Radar on the charts.
      2. After departure, aircraft shall remain on the Tower frequency until instructed. 3. En-route cruising levels will be issued after take-off by 'London Control'. 4. Report callsign, SID designator, current altitude and cleared level on first contact with 'London Control'.
      I have not got the old charts to confirm this as I take them straight from NATS web site. 
      Also frequencies have changed are we changing them within ES ?
        123.980, 131.005  BIRMINGHAM APPROACH/RADAR
        118.305  BIRMINGHAM TOWER
      121.805  BIRMINGHAM GROUND

      As above, how do you guys assess the runway surface condition on VATSIM? Do you make a visual assessment from the visual control room in correlation to the current/prevailing weather conditions or do you assess this purely off the METAR/TAF?
       
      The only reason i ask it that the surface condition of a runway really affects our landing performance (each operators SOP's may be different for the same aircraft type) Specifically if the runway is declared as DRY full length our crosswind limitations may be increased, whereas if the runway is declared WET full length, crosswind limitations are decreased. If i also needed to return after departure due to an emergency and perform an overweight landing, a DRY/WET surface also makes quite a difference for our overall LDA requirements. 
       
      Cheers

      Hi all,
       
      For the ones who enjoy carrying out IFR circuits in large aircraft, Doncaster Sheffield (EGCN) accepts visual circuits for aircraft above 5,700kg - B737/B757/B767/B747 etc. 
       
      The circuit profile & procedure can be found in the textual data in the AIP for EGCN. Primarily speaking only one aircraft can be in the circuit at a time. Be nice to get TWR on at EGCN from time to time to accept more training traffic within the network.
       
      The circuit profile briefly summarised as below:
       
      Visual circuits by aircraft above 5700 kg must comply with the following noise abatement procedures.
       
      i. Runway 02 After departure turn right crosswind at no greater than 2.5 DME, fly downwind at 2000 FT QNH, report final south of Bawtry (3 DME) and not below 1500 FT QNH.
      ii. Runway 20 After departure climb on track 190°, at 1.5 DME turn left crosswind, fly downwind at 2000 FT QNH and report final not below 1500 FT QNH
       
      Cheers.
