The Classroom (Controller Tips) / Controlling the Arrivals

Right, and he's making it seem like the technique of taking people off an arrival is wrong.  That's the point.

You said it right there, its a Technique. Is it required to give pilot's Short cuts, no. Is it Helpful at times, yes. Everyone has different opinions. Like me. I don't take planes off of starts unless i know its going to be Expeditious and/or the pilot request's it.

And like I have said, maybe it's his opinion?

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]Why though? What makes <50 any different.[/quote]

It's just how I was thought. I tried it on a few pilots and they all gave me Attitude after wards D:. So, If I am going to vector an aircraft off of a STAR, it would be <50 miles.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]I've done it from further out... aka, before the aircraft even got onto the arrival.

"Cleared direct SMFIX. Pilots discretion, descend to cross SMFIX at or above 6000, then cleared (approach) runway (runway)." There is technically nothing wrong with it. It's especially useful if you're really busy, they're RNAV equipped, and they are going to a semi-satellite field.

There are more important things to be "upset" about versus a controller's technique of pulling you off a STAR early.[/quote]

Personally, I wouldn't vector an aircraft off a STAR unless they are within 50 miles of the Arrival Airport.

Just my thought ^^


The Control Room Floor / VRC - TeamsSpeak3

Last night was an embarrassment. I lost count last night how many times Teamspeak crashed, had a stuck mic. Frustrating for me and irritating for fellow controllers.

I'm now running VRC with the Wave audio device and TeamSpeak with DirectSound. I am getting conflicting views from other responses on other boards as to whether or not they need to be different or the same. More seem to be in the camp that they should be different. So, it will stay that way for now.

I unchecked the DirectX overlay plugin and will try that out later and see if that helps. I am also going to look into disabling the exclusive mode application priority and see if that helps, assuming it's enabled and I can find it in the program setup.

When I got done last night, I logged off thinking that if I had been in the same room or building with the other controller I was working with, I would have had a butt whippin'. It was that bad.

Im sorry to hear that. If you were using the TS Overlay while in VRC, I know that for me that was an issue with VRC crashing, and TS locking up. Once I changed that, both VRC and TS3 were working as they should. Also be in mind that you should run both TS3 and VRC as Administrator's while using Windows 7.

Just switched from Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and working out the bugs.

I have, in the past had TeamSpeak issues that seem to have followed me to the new OS. With the 64bit OS I am using the 64bit TeamSpeak. Every so often, it locks up, or the mic stays open, can't see who's talking, then it seems to work itself out or more often the case have to logoff then back on.

I am wondering if I potentially have a conflict with the VRC sound device setup.
1.  Do I want the same audio device setup on TeamSpeak that I have with VRC? ie. DirectSound on VRC, DirectSound on TeamSpeak or do I want to have one running DirectSound and the other running Wave?
2.  Who else is having TeamSpeak issues? Is there something else at fault that I am not aware of?


I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit as well. I do not have an issue with using the same 'audio type' ie. DirectSound, Wave. I use DirectSound on both VCR and TS3.

Hope this helped,

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]Gents,

Is it me or does it appear that more and more controllers are not letting pilots fly the arrivals into airports? I realize the majority of newer pilots on Vatsim, haven't a clue on how to fly them or even what they are. But some of us do know how to fly them. I see it happening more often than ever myself by getting pulled off an arrival with little or zero traffic and no reason. Arrivals were created to expedite traffic flow into the terminal area safely alieviating the need for multiple vectors.
Why on earth would a controller want to complicate his/her life by taking a pilot off an arrival for no appearant reason when there is little or no traffic? I for one like to let pilot(s) fly the arrival as much as possible and limit my commands to what is really needed. If the majority of the pilots can't fly the arrivals, then take it up with those pilots. Don't penalize the ones that can. If you pull me off an arrival, at the very least I would expect a reason why.[/quote]

The Only Reason(s) I would take an Aircraft off a STAR would be for Traffic Separation, or if Traffic was light, to make their approach more expeditious.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]Tim,

So hard to determine the demeanor and tone behind text... but not knowing the whole story here I'll just take a stab and say that I practice the same thing. When traffic and workload is light, I have no problem pulling aircraft off a STAR solely for the purpose of expediting their arrival into the airport. This is not just something I do on VATSIM, but something that occurs in real life at two facilities that I know of.

Now that I said that, are you referring to situations where it would be more expeditious to leave them on?[/quote]

I Agree.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]Do you need to get ifr Clarence if noone is manning the appropriate Clarence dilvery post? If so how do you do that. If you are flying VFR into controled airspace but no controler is presnt do you also just monitor unicom?[/quote]

If you want IFR Clearance, however the local Clearance Delivery Controller is not on, but the next higher controller is on, (Tower,Approach/Departure,Center) then yes. If their is absolutley no one online in that ARTCC and the Specific Airport, then just monitor CTAF,(Unicom)

If you are Flying VFR into controlled Airspace , Charlie, Bravo, Delta, you contact the Tower, Approach/Departure, or Center Controller to get your appropriate "Clearance". If their is no controller present for your Airport, than simply monitor CTAF(Unicom)

Hope this Answered your Questions!
