General Discussion / Where's Management?

[!--quoteo--][div class=\\\'quotetop\\\']QUOTE [/div][div class=\\\'quotemain\\\'][!--quotec--]More to the point Mr. DuBois: What is your need? VATSIM and VATUSA have active management staff at all levels. Is there some particular issue you're concerned with, or was your post just to get a rise?[/quote]

I think Tom's questions are innocent enough as well.

Yup, and that's pretty much what it looks like when taking the scope from Sal

General Discussion / OTS Exam(s): 2 for 1 special at ZMA
« on: August 21, 2010, 02:47:11 AM »
Running some specials this weekend at ZMA. We have 2 back to back OTS's on Tower today, August 21! First up on the chopping block is Gary Price at 4pm Local (2000z). Then before the sweat dries on the headset Guillermo Striddles steps up to the scope at 7pm Local (2300z).

Good luck gents and let's have some fun pushing tin!!

If you are able to provide some traffic come on down to the warmth of the So. Florida beaches! All aircraft welcome and all types of flights welcome from your standard IFR to the crazy VFR cruising South Beach looking at the scenery

Featured airport is KMIA and each OTS is expected to last about 2hrs.

Yes it will be difficult for a center position but it can be done and once you start becoming familiar with the new procedures, it shouldn't cause too many probs. The only times this would be a big problem is during high traffic levels (weekends, events, etc...) in which case there's usually a local controller available (at least for the major facility).

Also, as many SOP's are written now (taking into consideration on the usual VATSIM configuration), there will be a "Relief" clause where you would be able to bypass the standard procedure to make a controllers scope time a little easier. I believe it is "On a workload permitting basis"
