Is this different to the controller tool that went on trial last June ?

What happened with that trial ?

Nope, it is still same tool we used during last CTP etc. It just requires more work to make it finished by the time of next CTP in march.

I'd like to know a bit more about what I'm signing up for before I do so, could you expand on the concept please?

Jon

Jonathan, this controller tool was first introduced at the end of 2011 and it was created by me using some simple php/js that I knew, after feedback from diffrent people, me and Jan Duk(my friend who is a great web developer) have decided to write it from the scratch and make it really advanced tool for gander and shanwick controllers.

What we have already?

As you can see on pictures that Michal posted, we have some layout idea prepared, you can also do quite a lot of stuff with it already, it was used by 3 controllers during CTP for alpha testing. There was minor problems, mostly with complicated position reporting system but they were not a huge problems. Within the system you can already do stuff like:

  • Add aircrafts or for CTP import them from the CTP database
  • Select NAT view settings(which NAT's you want to see)
  • Select ATC position settings(between from Clearance Delivery/NAT Controller and Full controller)
  • Issue clearance to the added aircrafts(only real NAT's are done so far, random routings TODO)
  • File position report for each point of their NAT flight plan.

The system will already help you with separating the aircrafts in its most basic form, system uses, FL, distance between points and calculated speeds to calculate the ETA's for next points on the whole route. It will then choose all aircrafts on the same FL and same NAT and see if there will be any separation errors between them, if yes they will be displayed. In the future we are looking to make it suggest conflict resolution too.

I can say that project is at around its 55/60th % and if I can get a good team then the project can be ready for BETA pretty quickly.

I was in the same position as Jon - I would like further information on the project.

After seeing the screenshots and reading the previous (more detailed) information, expect an application from me shortly. ;)

      Just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my first event last night as a controller rather than a pilot.  Particular thanks to @Dean Benavidez, @Piers Austin-Foss and @Jake Egan for the support.  I thought we did quite well at Bristol last night! 
      I would certainly welcome more events like this one within VATUK as it gives controllers like me a chance to get involved in more events outside of CTP and MWM 🌝

      Is there any documentation for Cardiff or if anyone could possibly share some documents of Cardiff?
      If not, can someone point me in the right direction.

      Just wanted to say a big thank you to Lenny who was Directing Gatwick app this afternoon.
      I (EZY22LC) hit a PC snag or two after departure, along with a corruptly loaded Flight plan in the FMS.  Not very often I practice a divert in the FS Labs A320 and so I chose to have a practice by doing a return to Gatwick.  I was outbound passing FL 200 on unicom when I sent a message to the Gatwick director, who had just handed me to 122.8
      He was kind enough to turn me and get me onto a star, planning that whilst nursing the PC and aircraft was fantastically challenging, I missed the first WP but the controller kindly pushed me to the next one down the star.  Flying the star manually as systems fell, I was vectored to and joined the ILS at about 12 miles.
      With the field in sight.... boom, my PC froze leaving me frozen on the ILS with traffic behind.
      I did shout a quick 'I am logging off' before disconnecting.
      Thank you Lenny, your patience and guidance were both very welcome. Apologies for stopping on the ILS all be it momentarily.
      ...............
      I have now uninstalled the newly installed drive backup software!  I never knew was running in the background trying to clone my drive whilst I was flying... Doh!

      Hi all,
      It is with regret that I am announcing my resignation as TG Instructor for New Controller effective 31/10/2020.
      I would like to thank @Daniel Crookes, @Oliver Rhodes and the rest of the Training Department for their continuous support. I would like to especially thank my partner in crime, @Fergus Walsh, who has worked with me for the last year. We have introduced some very exciting changes to TGNC including exams and structured lessons and I am very happy to have been a part of it.
      This is certainly an experience that I will never forget, and I am grateful for the memorable times I have had in the department. I look forward to seeing where Fergus and my successor takes the TG in the future!
      Thanks,

      Back in mid-2019...
      And now it's happening!
      To bring the terminology in line with ICAO’s preference for PBN procedures, the UK has been transitioning from “RNAV” to “RNP” approaches this autumn. There has been no change to any of the procedures and how they work; just the name and associated phraseology. I thought people might be interested in where/when this change has taken place to reduce any possible confusion over the frequency if pilots have up to date charts!
      The airfields for which the RNAV approach has already been renamed as of AIRAC 2010 (Effective ALREADY!) are:
      Alderney EGJA Barra EGPR Barrow/Walney Island EGNL Belfast/Aldergrove EGAA Birmingham EGBB Blackpool EGNH Bristol EGGD Cambridge EGSC Campbeltown EGEC Cardiff EGFF Cranfield EGTC Doncaster EGCN Dundee EGPN The following airfields will have their RNAV approaches renamed to RNP as of AIRAC 2011 (Effective this Thursday, 08 October) :
      Exeter EGTE Gloucester EGBJ Guernsey EGJB Islay EGPI Jersey EGJJ Kirkwall EGPA Lands End EGHC Liverpool EGGP London/Gatwick EGKK London/Heathrow EGLL London/Stansted EGSS  
      Heathrow
      The trial for the RNP Y approach remains in place, effective 08 OCT 2020 - 06 OCT 2021. Therefore, the permanent approach must be referred to as the “RNP Zulu” approach on frequency, as on the chart, and the RNP Y as "RNP Yankee".
       
      Some General RNAV Reminders
      The QNH must be included in RNP approach clearances, even if it has been issued with an earlier descent - “cleared RNP approach runway (designator), QNH (hPa)”. (I couldn't find the Procedure Change Post for this, but there definitely was one!)
        There are 3 fix types prior to the MAPt: IAF, Initial Approach Fix; IF, Intermediate Fix; FAF, Final Approach Fix. Aircraft may only be instructed to route direct to either an IAF or IF to commence an approach, not the FAF.
        Clearing an aircraft for the RNP approach clears them to descend to the platform altitude and then further with the procedure. Sometimes, generally for either separation purposes or due to the controlled airspace base, you may need to instruct the aircraft to maintain a higher altitude even if they are direct to the IAF/IF. The following phraseology may be used: “EZY12AB, route direct OLEVI, maintain altitude 4000ft” then later “EZY12AB, cleared RNP approach runway 26L QNH (hPa)”
        Where aircraft are instructed to route direct to an IF to commence the procedure - as they would be at Gatwick, for example - the turn at the IF onto the final approach track must not exceed 45 degrees.
