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.

They are ran every month or so. Make sure that you're part of TGNC on the CTS, and you'll get an invite once you are far up enough on the waiting list. Best thing you can do is be patient, and observe as much as you can to make your progression faster once you begin the process!

Hi Sathiya,
We currently run the OBS_PT1 Seminars twice a month so that as many people can attend. I have just had a look and you're not currently part of the TG New Controller Home Group, which means that you won't receive an email when Seminars are created, or be able to join a Seminar. I have sent you an email regarding how to get this sorted. The next Seminar is tomorrow (20/08/19 @ 1400z). 

Thanks

Thanks for all the reply. Unfortunately I didn't get any email  about the seminar Mr. Walsh. I just saw it at 1800. What a shame I missed it. I will keep looking here. 

Once again Thanks and soon I can catch it up.

So not to sound impatient, but is there any way to see how long down the waiting list you are. It's only 2-3 weeks since I signed up to begin my ATC training (Or I hope I did it correctly seeing how the author of this post wasn't a part of the TG New Controller Group) and I understand that the wait might be longer. But I was just wondering if it would be possible to get an approximate time on how long the usual wait is. I am really looking forward to commencing my training and I've been checking the CTS every day, ready to sign up for the next OBS introduction course.

In the past people used to wait for months. Now, however, this has been reduced to whenever the next session is (a couple of weeks, max a month). 🙂 As Fergus said, if you are a member of TG New Controller, you will receive an email when you get invited to the seminar.

      Just wondering now that I have my S1 at some point after I operated at EGCC GND would it be possible to control EGAA. How would I go about getting that sector or is Belfast not available

      Hi all,
      I've noticed recently a few instances where GND controllers are refusing to give aircraft departing 23R at EGCC holding point J1 due to the real-world situation of Max 8's being parked there. Whilst I understand that we are a simulation network, and we try to replicate real-world circumstance where practical, I don't think that insisting on limitations that act to the detriment of people flying out of Manchester conforms with the spirit of the game.
      If pilots wish to simulate the max 8's blocking J1 they are, of course, more than welcome to, but if someone specifically requests J1, it should be given. Real world, the lack of access to J1 is causing real issues to airlines operating long-haul routes, it makes no sense to impose the same limitation on people wishing to fly those same routes on VATSIM.
      Contrary opinions or thoughts welcome.

      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?
      Thanks,
      Ed

      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
      https://github.com/chembergj/RDF
      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.
      Cheers,
      Luke
