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 🇬🇱

Thanks Jonas for everything, it was great working alongside you as a mentor and friend. You will definitely be missed in the TG.

Time for some more Norwegian flights... 🇳🇴🇳🇴

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!

      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.
