atc-discussion EGPX Sectors for CTP Westbound 2015

Recommended Posts

George Wright

Due to the very northerly tracks in use for today's CTP, EGPX airspace will be far busier than usual. To enable Scottish to handle this increased traffic, we have devised this alternative three-sector split. The sectors are to be used today only and there will be no updated sector files.

  1. Scottish East (135.52) will control its usual AoR plus the northernmost NAT entry point in use, BALIX
  2. Scottish West (132.72) will control its usual AoR minus the airspace enroute to BALIX and above
  3. Scottish Dean Cross (126.3) will take airspace from both other sectors. This is the busiest section above the Scottish TMA where many conflicts occur in a small area. 

Relief callsigns will be EGPX_1_CTR for East, EGPX_2_CTR for West and EGPX_3_CTR for Dean Cross.

 

Here is the diagram of where CTP traffic will route.

 

Here is the CTP roster.

George,

 

With the scetor's spilt for PX will there be any top down?

Dean Cross will be doing the Scottish TMA airports. The other two sectors will do any airports that fall under their sector.

Just like to point out, more of a cosmetic thing but if you're using the upper Deancross sector, shouldn't it use the real world 135.525 frequency then change the PX_E frequency to something more appropriate. 126.300 is TC Talla South in real! ;)

Thanks Dale, we're aware of that. Unfortunately everybody's sector files (including the ones that the Scandinavians and Dutch have) are not set up like this. It's far easier to log in using these frequencies, so as to not cause total carnage.

CTP is enough carnage as it is I reckon! And DCS looks to be, interesting.

 

I will be opening E but I'm just about to leave now to sort out what I need to do. I will try my best to be back at half past but I can't promise anything. If I'm not there I'm on my way!

Ah yes, of course, sector files! :D

      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.

      The Letter of Agreement between London and Amsterdam (Dutch vACC) is revised to take into account changes in AD3 at the end of 2018. It's available here.
