atc-discussion Sector files / EuroNAT plugin for Euroscope

Recommended Posts

Michal Fira

Dear Shanwick Controllers,

 

Yesterday, Kieran uploaded clear sector-file for Shanwick, please make sure that this sectorfile is our current sectorfile and there will be no further updates unless it is needed. Additionally, for those who likes having NATS being displayed we have found recently the plugin written by Michael Freudeman. I have given it go and it works really well.

 

http://nova37.com/euroNAT.zip

 

Plugin instruction is here:

 

 

 

Installation Instructions:
1. Download and extract the DLL and wp.mdb together to any folder. Preferably a Euroscope one.
2. Open Euroscope and go to: Other SET > Plug-ins ...
3. Click the Load button and find where you extracted the DLL and click open.
4. Select the Plugin from the top menu and move 'Standard ES radar screen' from the Forbidden to draw on type list to the Allowed to draw on types list by selecting it and using the left arrows button.
5. Close the Plug-in dialog

Usage:
.natoptions
Opens the options dialog box.

.natrefresh
Force a refresh of the NAT data from the web.

.natshow <east|west|all|none|gui>
Toggle showing of east/west/all or none of the tracks, 'gui' opens the options dialog.

.natopt <linestyle|letters> <<dotted|solid|none>|<show|hide>>
Toggle styles for the lines and show/hide the NAT letter designators.

Mouse-over a WP to show its' NAT info.

 

Topic of the plugin is to be found here; http://www.nyartcc.org/bigapple/threads/9628-NAT-Plugin - please do not hesitate contacting the author of the plugin with comments/bug reports.

Best Regards and have fun!
Kieran and Michal

Hi K&M

 

If you've only just found this plug in then I'm sorry I didn't link to it before.

 

I had a problem, which I reported but never got a reply. http://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=52750#p453060

 

I haven't used it since but it might have been a coincidence as there were other reports of the IP address file being changed by network problems.

That seems to be a bug that was reported separately around the same time regarding an issue with the server list Phill. Are you certain that wasn't just a coincidence?

Evening Kieran,

Missed that bit  :rolleyes: skim-reading forum posts doesn't always pay off!

 

In that case, I'd bet that you're right about the coincidence. I'd be surprised if ES plugins had the ability to modify that file.

There is an updated version out there somewhere... not sure if it's made it's way onto the site yet.

The version sent to the CTP controllers has the new fixes and GOTA in it, unless it's super secret and not to be shared I can upload it for you. Kieran?

I think I generated the CTP one from an existing update. I'm sure Michal/Simon have a version, so they can probably update it if that file is appropriate.

The sector file is, as far as I'm concern, complete and ready to be published! However, I'll have to speak with @Anders Moen and the respective "sector file-team" (that is @Harry Sugden) first.

To answer your question, Claire; I think it's just around the corner. :)

I believe that has to go through the RTS system, if you are looking for sessions. Pure theory can be arranged 'off the record' (unofficially) on the VATUK Teamspeak server ;)

In case that someone is interested, I have used 2016's CTP-files and current EGGX-files to create a more up to date .SCT and .ESE for Shanwick and Gander.

You can fetch it here: LINK

      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 ?

      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.
