Free ATC Training

Post by Welshy » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:56 am

I would like to invite anyone in the community to do free ATC training with me on behalf of the YSRAAF and also the 323rd. Training will be this summer with dates TBA. If you like as well as Military ATC and AEW you may be able to do Civil ATC with me and Dave J......

OOHH!!!! I'm in! I'm available first week in July. Maybe we can combine the military ATC with some inter-squadron training?

A message to all those interested the following are required to be on your computer and download links will be provided:
TS3 for Military although Chatbox in YSF will be used for civil if you lack TS3
YSFlight (OF COURSE :P)
PDF Reader (Google Chrome, Adobe Reader etc)
Notepad

I will have the dates ASAP as I just need to speak to Dave J about the civil side:P

Brilliant! But i find that Civillian ATC is quite annyoing with the chat box function on ys. You miss messages due to lag ect ect and typing out messages is extremely time consuming.
Thats why i prefer TS3. Just my opinion. ;)

I suggest using using TeamSpeak. You can always have two channels, one military 1 civil.

What sort of military ATC will be done? Do you need any military flyers to act as pawns for your trainees?

Look I like the idea of Teamspeak to but some of us have problems.

Don't ask I've said: PC says NO!

Vandal the more people I can get the better then they can take it in turns to act as pawns but anyone that wishes to do so is thanked and invited to see how I teach and things

We have our own AWAC guys so wouldn't need to take part in the training. But do have highly trained combat pilots who will be flawless pawns.

Great idea, sometimes i do the pawn thing with civilian jets, and also simulation. Simulation is where players act as aircraft in a realistic manner but do not fly planes. This also greatly increases the rate of learning and cuts interruptions like server reset ect. ;)

There are definitely times where I would like to be able to jump in and do this... Even if there was a document for quick-reference, I would use it.
I'm back.
