When you put the URL into a browser, all you get is the tree.

Here is also what I get on our website.

Warning: DOMDocument::load( [domdocument.load]: failed to open stream: Connection timed out in /home/freightd/public_html/pages/public.php(21) : eval()'d code on line 4

Warning: DOMDocument::load() [domdocument.load]: I/O warning : failed to load external entity "" in /home/freightd/public_html/pages/public.php(21) : eval()'d code on line 4

The coding on our website hasn't changed. I think there is a problem with the feed.

It would appear the Vatusa Events Feed is out of wack again. See error below.

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

Did the URL change for the VATUSA Events feed or is the link broken? All of the sudden our site is not picking up VATUSA events.

Sorry, guys out the last few days attending a funeral. Trying to resolve our website issue. Hope to have it corrected shortly.

The Control Room Floor / "Descend Via"
« on: November 08, 2013, 09:57:34 AM »
This statement pretty much sums it up. It can be found in the 7110.65 4-7-1 Altitude Information -

A descend via clearance must not be used where procedures contain published “expect” altitude restrictions.

Good luck with the new job Zach.

The Control Room Floor / "Descend Via"
« on: November 06, 2013, 04:09:30 PM »
The Vista2 would not be a candidate for the "descend via..." phraseology. The words "Expect to cross..." invalidate the use of the phraseology if I am reading the 7110 correctly.

The Control Room Floor / "Descend Via"
« on: November 06, 2013, 09:57:10 AM »
Correct me if I am wrong, but my take on the descend via according to the 7110 is that if there is the word "expect"  on the STAR either rnav and non-rnav, a controller cannot use the phrase "descend via". There are some rnav arrivals that have the word "expect with the crossing" and some do not. I believe DEN has a STAR that you can "descend via." Not sure there are many of those types around. According to real world FTW_CTR controllers DFW will be getting all new arrivals that will be rnav sometime in 2014. Currently, vZFW doesn't have any arrivals  that would mandate a controller to use the phrase "descend via..." on the arrivals. I am hearing "decsend via" a lot in Vatusa where technicaly, this is incorrect in most cases.

The Control Room Floor / Reality vs. Accomodating VATSIMisms

I asked this very question to the RW ZFW when we visited there. Late at night they will actually clear a DFW dep aircraft bound for O'Hare  direct ORD. If another ARTCC is offline on vatsim,  I will certainly look at that option of clearign and aircraft direct for a shortcut.
