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

What happened with that trial ?

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?

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.

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. ;)

I wish i had some knowledge in programming. I would have been happy to help you out. I really miss a good tool for Oceanic controlling.

The project was going really well - then most members disappeared, and the project stopped :L

      Oooo, "cleared RNP approach runway 26L" soon come! 😎

      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.
