atc-discussion Shanwick Alias File

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Shanwick controllers!


I have made a simple, but hopefully good and useful Alias File that should work great for Shanwick controllers (unfortunately only with Shanwick callsign, but will be available for Gander soon). The Alias file includes the following:

  • Link to pilot brief
  • .noradar - information about Oceanic airspace for pilots with little knowledge about procedures in the North Atlantic Ocean.
  • Oceanic clearance with and without restrictions
  • Concorde clearance
  • Amended clearance
  • Procedural Reports (e.g. position report)
  • Revised estimates
  • Climb and Descent clearance
  • Change of speed (Mach number)
  • Oceanic hand-offs (to domestic and other OCAs)
  • Mayday instructions

When you have this much traffic, I assure you, a text alias will be handy! **advertisement**

      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!
