[March 5] CivAv ATC Session

Post by Neocon » Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:36 am

Turbofan and I will be hosting an ATC session on Sunday, March 5, 2017.

The event will start at 12:00 PM Central (6 PM GMT) and last until it ends.

The map will be announced soon. It will most likely be the Middle East map.

The aircraft installed will be the standard list of aircraft installed on the YS Civil Aviation Server.

Come on over and have some fun flying with friends.

Just wanted to add - you do not have to be technically adept at ATC jargon to attend this event. In fact, you do not have to know any ATC at all. Instructions by air traffic controllers will be given in plain English also. The main purpose of the event is to have fun. :)

I hope I can attend this since it's going to be very late for me and I'm probably going to have class the next day
I like coffee and mexican food, but not at the same time.

Just a small update. Unless there is some objection, we are planning to run the server using the stock console, which means it will be limited to the 2015 version of YSF.

Just a quick reminder folks that this is tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. US CST (5:00 p.m. GMT). The map will be the Middle East Map.

No need to file any flight plans yada yada, just join the server, spawn in any position (preferably a ground start position) and announce your callsign, where you are and what you intend on doing. So it will go something like this:

"Dubai Control, Emirates One-Three-Seven on stand F10, destination Kuwait City, requesting pushback." Pretty simple. If you have a cruising altitude in mind, you can request that at this point, if not, ATC will assign you one.

If anyone's interested in doing ATC, we can use one more controller so we have two (you don't need to have ATC expertise but some knowledge of ATC is required). If you're interested just send me a pm. Also, please note that you cannot use Discord to do ATC, since we'll be using only the in-game chat (F12).

One more thing: this will be 2015-only. Most everyone by now has the 2015 version. If you don't have the 2015 version, I suggest you get it if you want to join.

On that note, see you tomorrow! Hope to see a fair number online tomorrow :)

Oops, I meant to say we can use Discord voice. Thanks for the correction Barracuz!

Also, we'll use the default ATC channels already available. Flight Comms 1 will be used for Emirates Center, which will control the following airports:

Dubai Int'l (OMDB)
Abu Dhabi int'l (OMAA)
Sharjah Int'l (OMSJ)
Doha Hamad Int'l (OTHH)

If there is another controller available at the last minute, I will assign him to Flight Comms 2, which will be Bahrain Center and that will be used to control the remaining airports:

Bahrain Int'l (OBBI
Dammam Int'l (OEDF)
Riyadh (OERK)
Kuwait City Int'l (OKBK)

If traffic is light (expected) and I can control all airports, I will do that. If traffic gets too heavy for one guy and no other controller is available, the airports listed for Bahrain control will become Unicom-only, as I expect the "popular" airports will be OMDB, OMAA, OMSJ and OTHH.
