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,

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!

      Hello all,
      I was accepted yesterday to control in the UK under VG5. The email said I could control anywhere specified in that area without the need for any sessions of familiarization.
      I really think I should be getting at least an introductory session for controlling in the UK. I hope I can find some available members of this community (C1 controllers, not necessarily mentors or INS rated) to help me get in the groove rather than embarrass myself and annoy pilots on London West Control 🙂
      Help appreciated,
      Maher

      Hello,
      i have just started using VATSIM.
      In the real aviation life I fly from Oxford (EGTK) and have an instrument rating. I intend to use VATSIM to initially simulate IFR flights from and to Oxford using other IFR airports in UK and France as destinations. Oxford is in class G and my destination airports might or might not be in class D (but they will be IFR aerodromes). I might also fly in CAS only during portions of the flight. For example flying from Oxford to Newquay at FL100 (I fly an SR22) will have both aerodromes with instrument procedures available but located in class G and will contain only a portion of the flight being in class A and in airways and/or over class D CTRs which I will need clearance to transit. I will of course file a flight plan. This is a typical mission in my real aviation life. The questions I have are the following ones:
      1) will I be able to talk to Oxford and Newquay for IFR , departure and arrival clearances and control even if in the controllers on line list I do not see controllers active in these airports? I am referring in particular to the TWR and APP frequencies which are fundamentally important on departures and arrivals. Yesterday I  saw that there were controllers in Manchester and was able to talk to them. Then I repositioned myself in Oxford and I was not able to talk to a controller (there was no controller indicated as active in Oxford).
      2) would the answer to question 1 be different if I was departing and/or arriving from/into airports in class D?  Is there always a controller available in class D airports?
      3) do I need to see a controller active for London control in order to be cleared to enter controlled airspace and obtain radar control service?
      4) what will happen during the portions of the flight when I will be outside CAS? In the real life normally I would be handed over to a LARS controller who will give me traffic service or even deconfliction service if I ask for it, being on an IFR FPL. I might also move from a class A airspace over to a Class D airspace if there is a class D CTR on route (for example Cardiff or Bristol in the above mentioned example). How will the handover from London control to the respective en route clad D airspace work? Can I assume that there will be controller available for the class D zones to give clearance and control (either radar or procedural control)?
      in a nutsheel my questions are about controllers availability to control IFR flights in the UK airspace. In the real life they are there from beginning to end (including London Information if there is no other ATCU available). What about in the VATSIM world? Or in VATSIM I am supposed to first check what controllers are available and then define my flight plan according to controllers’ availability?
      i attach a PDF with the flight plan for the EGTK-EGHQ flight in the example
      Apologies for the long question. I tried to be as clear as I could be.
      Help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I’ve been zipping around the country VFR the last few days exploring FTX England, and have assumed Radio-airports are not serviced on the network. Relevant CTR has been online during some of my flights, and I’ve communicated appropriately for TWR &AFIS fields, but remained on unicom without complain for all the AGs. Then yesterday I had a thought to look up the rule for this, and while I found none, some posts describe S2s manning AG-positions. 
      The question then becomes, does top down apply here, or would APP and CTR prefer not to be having to pay attention to one guy reporting in and out of such aerodromes during their hours of service?

      Hi All,
      I've just logged onto Heathrow for the first time in a while. My adjacent controllers are telling me they're being told that GMC now does the stand allocation. I've always been under the impression that GMP has always had the role of stand allocation, it's always what I was taught and have taught. 
      This is apparently coming from ATC staff/LL Mentors that this is a Heathrow specific. However, in the vMATS and Moodle, it mentions that GMP has this role at Heathrow. We have a Heathrow event coming up next month, so could someone help clear this up beforehand to save confusion amongst the GMC & GMP controllers to guarantee a smooth running event. 
      Thanks in advance,
      Louie

      Dear all,
      There is a P1 exam this Sunday evening 10th Feb; the candidate would appreciate some ATC to help make the exam a success.
      Please can we ask for ATC cover from EGCC, LONDON & EGKK; beginning from 18:30Z (EGCC).
      Many thanks,
      Lewis
