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.

      As a newly trained S1
      I seem to have some confusion when it comes to clearing aircraft with step climbs in there flight plans.
      For example I had an aircraft on a southbound routing to Spain they filled for cruise altitude of FL240, however had a stepclimb to FL250 within there flightplan.
      Could I clear this Aircraft on FL240 or will I be shouted down for it?
      Is there anything i need to change in his flight plan such as set a temp FL within ES as I would be initially clearing a south bound aircraft on an even flight level.
       
      Thanks for your help

      Hello!
      It's been a very long time since I've been active on the controlling side (I'm pretty sure I was still a kid when I was most active, and I'm 26 now!) and I've been thinking recently that I'd like to get back into the swing of things. I had validations for Jersey Control and Heathrow Tower back in 2010, and though I'm sure the Heathrow one is useless these days, the Channel Islands are fairly straightforward and probably a good way for me to get back into it. I've just got a couple of questions which I searched for but had no luck:
      1) Am I allowed to just jump straight back in on Jersey or do I have to be revalidated?
      2) Is there an idiot's guide to setting up EuroScope from scratch anywhere? I resisted switching to it back in the day, and somebody set up my Heathrow profile for me so I'm really not sure of what I'm doing.
      3) (this is where I really show how hopelessly out of the loop I am) While I figure out how to get myself up and running on ES, am I allowed to use VRC as a stop gap? I would worry that its lack of tag features would maybe cause issues for coordination with LON_CTR.
       
      Thanks in advance for your help! I'm looking forward to getting some ATC time in, I've been flying again for the last 18 months or so and it's great to see such a high standard of ATC in the UK.

      Hi All,
      Following today's release of UK2000 Bristol 2019 HD, I thought I'd provide an update on the latest parking stand limitations - as this scenery includes some apron extensions and stand changes that won't be covered in the existing vMATS or indeed the sector file to an extent. This will also be useful for pilots choosing their stand when setting up for departure (or indeed arriving without ATC). 
      The aircraft type shown is the maximum type that can use that stand:
      Stands 1-3 - A321
      Stand 3R & 4 - B752
      Stands 5 & 6 - B738/A320
      Stands 7-9 - A320
      Stands 10-15 - A319
      Stands 19 & 20 - B738 
      Stand 21 - B733/F100/E190
      Stand 22 - B738/A320
      Stands 23-25 - A321*
      Stand 26 - B789/A333
      Stand 26S - B738/A320 (Cannot be used at same time as 26)
      Stands 28 & 30 - A321
      Stand 29 - B752
      Stand 31R - E145
      Stand 31 - A321
      Stand 32R - E145/AT72
      Stand 32 - B752
      Stand 32L - E195
      Stand 33 - B752
      Stand 33L - E195
      Stand 34 - A321
      Stand 35 - B738/A320
      Stand 36 - E145
      Stands 37-39 - A321
      (Bear in mind the multi-use of these stands, and which ones may block others)
      Overflow Stands (These are not to be used routinely, though some of them [Such as E2/W3/W5] could be used for additional heavy parking if 26 is occupied, but at the expense of blocking other stands):
      Stands E1-E3 - A321**
      Stands W1 & W2 - E145
      Stands W3-W7 - A321**
      *I have some conflicting information about stands 23-25, they used to be max B752 but the latest information I have states A321. I will check and update ASAP, as the documentation I am using has been misprinted before!
      **Stands E1/E2 & W4/W6 are used even more infrequently - in the real world, these are for departure only in very busy times and a/c are towed onto these stands. 
      Hope this is useful!
      Regards,

      Traffic Flow
      Traffic entering in the South West of the FIR will route towards Heathrow and Munich via the South coast and to Copenhagen and Warsaw via CPT and onwards.
      AC West is expected to see a large amount of inbound and overflying non-event traffic - for this reason - no inbound event traffic is routing via the BEDEK/KENET area.
       
      Traffic inbound at LIFFY and DEXEN will route to BNN for Heathrow, as well as to Amsterdam and Warsaw via LAMSO and into Scottish for Copenhagen. Some Copenhagen (via BPK) traffic will cross the Warsaw stream to LAMSO in the North Sea sector.
      Finally, traffic inbound to Heathrow will arrive via BEL & KELLY. This can be descended beneath the other streams.
      Daventry has mostly the responsibility to sequence for Heathrow arrivals. Clacton is staffed mostly for AMS <-> LHR city shuttlers
       
      Event Sectors
      Currently we plan to use the event split of AC West into North and South and AC North into Lakes and North Sea

      Shannon is operating using this configuration: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1fQU_ksQkb-jAlJ6fOQlp7JxAYI0uajPSc1v9Ii8mITI/edit?
      Amsterdam plans to use an East/West split (no Maastricht Delta online)
      Brussels may be covered by Eurocenter vACC

      Traffic Flow
      Traffic entering in at MOLAK will split into three - one section to Copenhagen, one to Munich at LONAM and one to Amsterdam at TOPPA
      Traffic entering at NIPIT routes via BEL and KELLY into AC Lakes. This might need to be descended slightly early to go beneath traffic in their sector.
      Traffic routing towards Copenhagen from AC North will cross both Amsterdam and Munich inbounds, hopefully with Amsterdam traffic already descending towards TOPPA.
       
      Event Sectors
      Currently we plan to use the event split of Scottish East into North and South
      We will open West+Deancross combined and East.
