I am delighted to announce the publication of our Oceanic Control document.


I would like to thank Kieran Hardern for the time he has spent putting this invaluable document together.  


Kieran would like to thank George Wright, Jamie Fox, Barrie Joplin and Chris Pawley for their extensive proof reading, corrections and suggestions. 
Also thanks to Martin Bergin and Jean-Francois Desrosiers for their input regarding procedures and content.
The document can be found here.
I hope that you find it useful.

Is there still a requirement to pass Mach number in a position report? The last few trips I've done didn't involve a single one.

I'm presuming now because all the separation is time based rather than speed based, therefore there is no requirement to pass it.

According to the examples in NAT 007, Mach numbers are not included in position reports :)


From the document:

“Position, Swissair 100, on 8831, RESNO at 1235, Flight Level 330
Estimating 56 North 020 West at 1310, 56 North 030 West Next”

      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!
