atc-discussion What do you use for Shanwick?

Recommended Posts

Morten Jelle

Hi there

 

For the last 2 weeks now, I've been installing and searching things for Euroscope to use on the Shanwick position. I found the EuroNAT plugin, so far.

However, I was used to have this webbased tool, that was in Beta. Now it's not available anymore. I do however have an Excel sheet, that can be used for this.

But, my question is:

 

Since there is nothing except the EuroNAT and sectorfile, that is updated and "active", I am interested in knowing, what you other guys use here? Did i miss something, that is about to be developed and is in testing or something?

I can't find anything, so I guess I have to use the Excel sheet.

 

Thanks a lot in advance! :)

Hi Morten

 

I don't control Oceanic yet (obviously), but someone told me about GOATS a while ago, and I just had a search for it online: http://giwiganz.com/Gander/Seems pretty interesting!

For some reason, your google works better than mine, becuase when I search for "GOATS VATSIM" - this doesn't come up.. <_<

But thanks Harry! Will definately look into that!!

Morten,

 

I used GOATS in my marathon session the other day and it is a game changer!!!

 

In terms of my total setup, I used the G/SAATS Mod that is mentioned a few threads up, modified to include the Australian TAAATS Mod so that I have the CPDCLC functionality directly within Euroscope (it makes life sooooo much easier and quicker), as well as a couple of other nifty bits (ADS-C position data for one!!), and I much prefer the TAAATS Tag setup, despite a few errors that occur from my mash up of the two configs!

 

GOATS is simply a superb tool and the best way I have found of managing FPLs, as well as conflict alerting and resolution, overdue information updates and also a Flight Data Display. The Navdata within the FDD is currently out of date so it gets a bit confused with aircraft near the Gander coastline and the VATSIM search is currently non-functional but I am in good comms with the developer and they are known issues to be fixed soon.

 

If you need a hand, please let me know!

 

Cheers

Does GOATS have a place where you setup your hardware or do you have to have Euroscope open for comms and can GOATS do SELCAL checks or does that have to be done through Euroscope still?

GOATS is not a standalone controller client, so no, you are not able to 'host' your frequency as such through the software.  It is a controller tool (a bit like plugins that work in EuroScope) and so it can be used by a controller alongside their standard network setup.

To be honest, I do like this one: http://www.andersmoen.com/dev/oceanic/

I have unfortunately not tried  GOAT yet, so I will not say anything for sure, but I use Anders Moen's sheet whenever I sit Shanwick :)

      Hi All,
      Following today's release of UK2000 Bristol 2019 HD, I thought I'd provide an update on the latest parking stand limitations - as this scenery includes some apron extensions and stand changes that won't be covered in the existing vMATS or indeed the sector file to an extent. This will also be useful for pilots choosing their stand when setting up for departure (or indeed arriving without ATC). 
      The aircraft type shown is the maximum type that can use that stand:
      Stands 1-3 - A321
      Stand 3R & 4 - B752
      Stands 5 & 6 - B738/A320
      Stands 7-9 - A320
      Stands 10-15 - A319
      Stands 19 & 20 - B738 
      Stand 21 - B733/F100/E190
      Stand 22 - B738/A320
      Stands 23-25 - A321*
      Stand 26 - B789/A333
      Stand 26S - B738/A320 (Cannot be used at same time as 26)
      Stands 28 & 30 - A321
      Stand 29 - B752
      Stand 31R - E145
      Stand 31 - A321
      Stand 32R - E145/AT72
      Stand 32 - B752
      Stand 32L - E195
      Stand 33 - B752
      Stand 33L - E195
      Stand 34 - A321
      Stand 35 - B738/A320
      Stand 36 - E145
      Stands 37-39 - A321
      (Bear in mind the multi-use of these stands, and which ones may block others)
      Overflow Stands (These are not to be used routinely, though some of them [Such as E2/W3/W5] could be used for additional heavy parking if 26 is occupied, but at the expense of blocking other stands):
      Stands E1-E3 - A321**
      Stands W1 & W2 - E145
      Stands W3-W7 - A321**
      *I have some conflicting information about stands 23-25, they used to be max B752 but the latest information I have states A321. I will check and update ASAP, as the documentation I am using has been misprinted before!
      **Stands E1/E2 & W4/W6 are used even more infrequently - in the real world, these are for departure only in very busy times and a/c are towed onto these stands. 
      Hope this is useful!
      Regards,

      Traffic Flow
      Traffic entering in the South West of the FIR will route towards Heathrow and Munich via the South coast and to Copenhagen and Warsaw via CPT and onwards.
      AC West is expected to see a large amount of inbound and overflying non-event traffic - for this reason - no inbound event traffic is routing via the BEDEK/KENET area.
       
      Traffic inbound at LIFFY and DEXEN will route to BNN for Heathrow, as well as to Amsterdam and Warsaw via LAMSO and into Scottish for Copenhagen. Some Copenhagen (via BPK) traffic will cross the Warsaw stream to LAMSO in the North Sea sector.
      Finally, traffic inbound to Heathrow will arrive via BEL & KELLY. This can be descended beneath the other streams.
      Daventry has mostly the responsibility to sequence for Heathrow arrivals. Clacton is staffed mostly for AMS <-> LHR city shuttlers
       
      Event Sectors
      Currently we plan to use the event split of AC West into North and South and AC North into Lakes and North Sea

      Amsterdam plans to use an East/West split (no Maastricht Delta online)
      Brussels may be covered by Eurocenter vACC

      Traffic Flow
      Traffic entering in at MOLAK will split into three - one section to Copenhagen, one to Munich at LONAM and one to Amsterdam at TOPPA
      Traffic entering at NIPIT routes via BEL and KELLY into AC Lakes. This might need to be descended slightly early to go beneath traffic in their sector.
      Traffic routing towards Copenhagen from AC North will cross both Amsterdam and Munich inbounds, hopefully with Amsterdam traffic already descending towards TOPPA.
       
      Event Sectors
      Currently we plan to use the event split of Scottish East into North and South
      We will open West+Deancross combined and East.

      Good Afternoon 
      Firstly, apologies if this topic is covered in other areas of the forum....I have carried out a search without a great deal of success. Secondly, this question has arisen after my inaugural full flight on VATSIM, from EGKK to EDDH on XP 11 with the FF A320, which was hugely enjoyable and fretful all at once.
      The majority of learning has been gained from "apron listening" to the various procedures. The one item I faced without any prior experience was the descent procedure. 
      As you know, the MCDU will give me a TOD point. I am happy that a radar or director controller will probably not be aware of this point and I will need to request it. This first flight resulted in a late descent pattern resulting in vectors to shed altitude, which I achieved readily enough. I was helped enormously by a very patient and understanding director and tower controller at EDDH...(Flight taken on 24/10/19 at about 1700Z. Thank you, by the way). 
      The question is: How far in advance of TOD should I carry out initial call up, (I am using the VATSIM P1 phraseology guide), to radar to assist in my calculated descent path, and is it acceptable to inform a controller if I anticipate a too steep a path due to control lags, (or most likely my incompetence)?
      p.s. Happy with the concept of track miles btw....

      Will other bookings (for example airports that are not taking part in the event) be valid for the day?
