Roos ATC Session

Postby ATC Roo » Mon Apr 23, 2018 4:24 pm

It must be a blue moon this coming Saturday as I have time to myself?

As I've been throwing around the Euroscope and SIMCOM X tools in order to help ATC within JoinFS, I thought I might give ATC a go myself and see how well they're working.

There are two parts to this event, the first being a hoplist in the states with ATC provided throughout the route.
The second being EGNR opening in the UK, trying to be as realistic as possible (controller skill dependent :? and still having fun ;) ).

Session Time = 1800z

Hop List = Logan Intl (KBOS) => Kennedy Intl (KJFK) => Philadelphia (KPHL) => Ronald Regan Washington Natl (KDCA)

Airport Details if needed are at the bottom of this post.

After the Hop Event....

EGNR = from around 2100z until the early hours (Traffic Dependent).

The HUB and Comms remain the same for both parts of the event.

JoinFS Hub Address = 09868 40522

Comms =
SIMCOM X if you want to give it a whirl.
Elite PremAirs Teamspeak server (as it may be that not all controllers will be using SIMCOM X, check the list of controllers).

I will be using both throughout, as the idea for SIMCOM X is to run alongside a groups existing voice server.

Everybody and their dog is invited to join in.
All pilots and flight types (IFR, VFR, FORMATIONS, CIVIL, MILITARY etc) are more than welcome.
Other controllers would also be great.

The type of ATC you receive will depend on how comfortable you are with ATC.
For Example:
If you've never flown with ATC before, this is the perfect time to ask me what the instruction I've given you means.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you know everything there is to know about flying (and the controller is able) you might want to try procedural approaches or SRAs.
I will be doing my best to provide as realistic RT as possible.

I hope a few are able to join in, if there are any questions let me know.

A friendly reminder that I will definitely be available on Saturday from 1900z onwards.

If ATC scares you slightly, there is nothing to stop you listening in to see what is going on.

I'm just looking to drum up some traffic and if there is enough, other controllers for handovers.

Ok then....
Very late organisation, but I'm a bloke and it's what we do.
I noticed Elite Premair had an ATC event at the same time as this.
So asked them if they wanted to merge the 2 events some how.
Being the Gentlemen and Ladies that they are, between us we have put something together.

Elite Premair Virtual have a hop event starting Saturday at 1800z in the US around Boston with ATC.
I will be apart of that event controlling.
I will have SIMCOM X open but the other controllers may not.
​​​​​​​A list of Active ATC is shown in SIMCOM X.

The Teamspeak Server for those not using SIMCOM X is the Elite PremAir server.

Afterwards around 2100z I'll be opening EGNR in the UK.
Using the Same Teamspeak Server and SIMCOM X.

Pilots whining there's never ATC but VATSIM and IVAO, here's your chance.

Similarly Atcos looking for traffic........

It's nice when groups can join in together, hopefully a few can join us. :)

I’m unable to fly at Saterdays at that time, but I am interested to know how it went. Can someone drop in one or two lines by way of report?

Firstly I'd like to say thank you to ElitePremair (especially Matt and Dan), who let me tag on to the end of their event and use their Teamspeak server and JoinFS hub.

The last part of the event wasn't the busiest of sessions. :D
Due to my late organisation and the fact Saturdays (and Sundays) are when most groups organise their events.

When I organise the Christmas Events, I spend around a month joining each groups Teamspeak servers and sending emails to make each group aware.

I wasn't able to test SIMCOM X as everybody was using Teamspeak, although I did have it open and it was working fine running alongside.
I would imagine a download puts people off when they already have a working voice server.


The Euroscope proxy worked a treat.
I found a few things that it should be doing and wasn't.
Using data from FSX or the JoinFS whazzup showed Aircraft positions were spot on, so much so that I was able to conduct a number of SRAs with one pilot.
He changed his weather to thick fog and despite never flying an SRA before, he was able to get his Embraer on the runway each time.

I will be on again tonight.
There is no event planned by me, but I'll see if I can find a group that don't mind me joining in.
I will have SIMCOM X open throughout, if anybody wants to say hello.
