Hi all,

It is with great sadness that I have taken the decision to leave my role as TG2 TGI, it has been a long road to get the TG to where it is today with the S2 waiting list down to nothing and the S3 list moving like never before. This decision has not been easy but I feel it would be hard for me to continue in the role due to the loss of a large proportion of the team that I have been working with over the past year and certain decisions made in upper management.

Ever since joining the department in March, TG2 has gone from strength to strength, 31 committed and valued mentors have joined the team and 45 students have passed exams  in TG2 alone during the 11 months of my tenure. I have full trust that @Lee Roberts will be able to continue this exponential growth which has been seen not only in TG2 but TG1 as well thanks to the collaboration between myself and @Jamie Paine.

Thanks to all the mentors (you know who you are), students and other members of the staff team for playing such a big role in the division. Special thanks to @Luke Collister and @Charlie Watson for helping me along the way. 

Wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year.

 

Kind Regards,

J

While I have not had too much dealings with you, I have always considered you to be one of the most active and hard working TGI's in the Division. It is certainly sad when someone like yourself decides to resign. I wish you well for the future.

 

Regards

Another one bites the dust..

Jonas, it has been a pleasure working with you on what was the Essex team and trying to bring Essex back to life. This is a massive loss to the division and only one can hope that someone else with the same amount of enthusiasm fills in your role to keep the TG up to a good standard!

Thank you for all your commitment and hard work during my S3 training.

Don’t be a stranger! Maybe a quick trip to Rovaniemi? 

It’s been fun,

Louie 🇬🇱

Another huge loss.

Your contributions to the division have been endless - thank you so much. I wish you the best of luck with whatever you do in the future - (don't crash too many planes on LON_N 😉).

Whilst the success of an organisation comes down, of course, to all of its members, a more than cursory glance often tends to reveal some outstanding contributors. Through your sheer tenacity, the contribution you have made has been nothing short of outstanding, and has been one of (if not the) main factors in the tremendous improvement seen in TG2 and the division in the whole, helping to lay the foundations for instructors and mentors in years to come.

Thank you for an exceptional contribution to mentoring in VATSIM UK, and all the best for the future!

Jonas, thank you for your help towards me. I wouldn't be a mentor without your support. Thanks also for your determination regarding mentoring and shaping TG2 in a great way.

Jonas,

It has been great working with you on improvements in TG1 & TG2. Hopefully can free up some more time for us to do some flying/controlling.😉

Thanks a lot Jonas for everything you've done over this year - mentoring me on east mids way back at the start of the year, doing my OTS to become a TG2 mentor, and also the LL mentoring. If it wasn't for you I'd still be in TG1! ... lol

And yeah, good luck with your C1 training!

Jonas,

I think it’s safe to say that there are few mentors or staff members who have given up as much time as you have.

Thank you, and I’m glad that you finally gave in to my persuasion to control at Heathrow.

Jonas, thanks for the huge investment in your time you've given the Division over the past number of months and for the push you've given TG2.

Hopefully I'll still be seeing your name showing up as online on VATSpy more often than it already is!

      Hi.
      As the Frequencies have changed slightly at EGCC e.g Tower was 118.625 now 118.630
      Are we reflecting this when we sign on as a controller??
       
      Thanks

      Hi all, here is the plan for London and Scottish Control for CTP. A diagram is available at https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1OGolnZEqO5_Yg9BmbxFZbwqtfnk-Pl3WtnFVS7afSDA/edit?usp=sharing.
      All London and Scottish sectors to be used are standard and as per the current sector file. 
      We have four tracks for event traffic - R (GOMUP), T (PIKIL), X (MALOT) and Y (LIMRI). The non-event tracks will be in the middle - U (RESNO) and W (DOGAL). Westbound transfers to Shannon domestic will be to 131.150 above FL245"  Westbound traffic going via BAGSO and LIPGO above FL245 should be to 125.870 and between BAKUR and LEDGO is 131.150 and then south of LEDGO is 135.600.
       
      Scottish
      Scottish will split East/West. Please split West + DCS (133.200) from the bandbox sector. LSZH and EHAM traffic will overfly on separate routes to LONAM and TOPPA respectively. EDDF traffic will overfly the short distance via IOM. There are three routes for EGCC - one will route via IOM to MIRSI, the other two will converge on DCS and will need to be merged for arrival into ROSUN. This is the only planned convergence. 
       
      North
      North will split AC/TMA initially. If we have spare controllers on the day we can consider splitting the TMA again. AC North will handle overflying traffic for LSZH, EDDF and EHMA via LAMSO. It will also handle a short route for EHAM via DEXEN going to Central. All EGCC traffic will route UNDER AC North as per the usual agreements.  The North Sea sector will be split from AC North at select moments. Details here.
      TMA will handle arrivals into Manchester from three directions: LIFFY, IOM and DCS. The LIFFY and IOM traffic will converge on WAL for MIRSI. TMA is going to be very busy and will be handling all three stacks, so this will be the priority to split if we have the extra manpower. 
       
      West
      West will handle two streams of overflying traffic: a small amount of LSZH arrivals routing STU to CPT and a full track of traffic crossing the short distance from LEDGO to ANNET. We are expecting non-event traffic to mostly use the routes via West, so expect additional London arrivals. This will remain as one position for the day.
       
      South/Central
      South and Central have some CTP traffic but nothing major. There will be some EHAM arrivals routing via HON-REDFA and some LSZH arrivals routing CPT-MOTOX. The main traffic expected will be non-event traffic using the London airports to connect to EGCC/EHAM. This traffic could be quite significant especially in the Daventry and Clacton sectors. We will decide on the day how to split but South/Central will be at least two sectors, perhaps three if staffing permits. 
       
      The rosters will be out soon.
      Good luck everyone!

      Hello guys,
      I've was controlling Manchester Ground recently and a pilot informed me that the NATS website has posted some incorrect charts for the aerodrome: http://www.ead.eurocontrol.int/eadbasic/pamslight-2802534C6AB6A0F20B85CF9B0216B244/7FE5QZZF3FXUS/EN/Charts/AD/AIRAC/EG_AD_2_EGCC_2-1_en_2018-10-11.pdf
      The main difference is the taxiway names. Holding points J1 is now R1, M1 is R2, H1 is R3 etc. 
      Is Manchester Airport in real life still using the old taxiways? Do they actually plan to change the names of the taxiways soon?

      Hi,
      I have been looking around the forum and website and have been unable to find any documentation relating to Gibraltar (save for a letter of agreement with VATSPA, dated February 2012). As I imagine that the single letter I have found will be full of out of date information, does anybody know where I can get documentation or EuroScope files for Gibraltar?
