atc-discussion EGBB new SID airac 1906 ES sector file

Recommended Posts

It has been noticed recently that many new controllers and maybe some older members have been coming to BB to control and not having the updated Sector files that contain the new AIRAC 1906 SIDs.

Can I suggest that if members want to control at an airfield that they make sure they have the most up to date information to make the pilots and the controllers experience more enjoyable.

I know for pilots the new AIRACs are at a cost to them but for controllers is a free download and 5-10 mins to update to a new screen. 

If I want to control at another airfield I would make sure I had the correct up to date  information 


I have for your information added the link to the sector file page.

I still hope one day we can get the UK Controller Pack in line with the automatic update system in ES. Then Ops can push new sectorfiles every month and rid us of this problem.

      Hello Moderators,
      I have been waiting a long time for the next OBS ATC training session so I can carry on with my training. I have finished the theory course already. Hopefully I will get one soon.

      Hello all,
      When setting up an atis, I like to add additional information such as: "Delivery is closed" etc. However, whenever a new atis is updated, the information resets itself, removing my addition information and the only way I see of doing it is to re-add the information every time a new atis is updated. Is there a better way of doing this?

      Hi all,
      As I see this coming up on Slack, I thought I'd post this here while the official BoG blog post is being proof-read and posted: the UK2 server has been taken out of service and the UK1 server has been renamed to just "UK". In your client, you would need to change the server to "UK". However, for voice, I've found there's no need to change any of your voice configuration settings as far as servers are concerned.
      From personal experience, some of the servers (Germany, in particular) seem to have some problems with the METARs being displayed: https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79161 , however, the UK server seems to have no issue with them. I hope this helps somebody while we all settle down with the change and the official announcement becomes public 😄

      Just in case anyone hadn't seen this plugin pop up on the .net forums
      It draws a circle around the aircraft transmitting (if on screen), or a line to the aircraft if off screen. Can be a massive help when controlling a busy bandboxed sector.
