Hey! I am curious when the next introductory group seminar may be held? Are they regular?
By Kieran Harvey
I have just signed up as a new controller, but on the CTS I think it shows me as a "Visiting Controller" which is incorrect.
I have also not recieved any email confirming entry into the group etc.
Am a bit confused as to what I have done or am supposed to be doing, any help appreciated.

With the current backlog on S2 training wouldn't it not help reduce the waiting times. For one people would be able to self teach which would teach students the theory aspect of things and allow mentoring sessions to be more about applying that theory into practice which would decrease waiting times as students will not need to learn the theory during mentoring sessions.
I am not sure if there is a S2 Moodle Course in the making but I think it would be very helpful.

Just realised after I posted this question in the approach training forum it would only get to the training group and not the wider audience.
On non precision approaches should we be offering or if asked give the pilots a procedural service as they are flying a pre determined procedure as per chart, even though they are in controlled airspace.
had one answer with the answer basically no
my reply was ..... so there are no airfields in the UK that offer this service.
I was wondering do I need to spend time read on this as I’m doing my approach training

I apologize for asking the question that is likely trivial and explained somewhere in the vMATS that I've managed to skillfully miss whilst reading over it. In any case, maximum flight levels to different places (from Gatwick, in my specific case)! Is there a comprehensive list somewhere that I can add to the mass of PDFs I have when controlling, or a logical ruleset based on direction that I am just not party to?
Obviously over time I commit a few frequent ones to memory (I do hope they start coming up in these endless weekly pub quizzes at the moment so I can suddenly jump up and say 290 when they finally ask what the maximum FL to schipol is, but given so far the anatomy questions my family rope me in for have yet to be more complex than the number of bones in the body, I am not optimistic), but I do my best to avoid being the irritating GMC controller that clears invalid FPs for a poor CTR controller with a far higher workload to have to pick up and correct and then spend time educating me, so knowing how I can find them for myself would probably aid in this regard. Of course, it's equally possible that there are only a couple of airports where maximum flight levels apply, but that would be equally useful to know.
So that's my 1am question, any input is appreciated - take care everybody!
