« on: February 12, 2024, 08:30:25 PM »
In May 1886, Dr. John Pemberton brought his perfected soda to Jacobs' Pharmacy in downtown Atlanta and shared the first Coca Cola with a group of 9 people. Since then, he shared about nine drinks per day in the first year of founding the Coca-Cola company. Share a Coke with ZTL, as we celebrate the 138th anniversary of not-Pepsi!

Actually…

Technically there is no instructor pool and there are no plans to create something like that, we are working on a program designed to help those subdivisions that have a large backlog of training.

The Control Room Floor / Re: "Limited Services"
« on: March 28, 2019, 08:06:55 AM »
What we're implying when we say that we're limited by realistic radar coverage is that we won't be able to give you full radar coverage to the ground if you're going into an airport in BFE. If you're going into a TRACON or up-down you'll be fine...

What you're implying by "realistic radar coverage" may not be what every controller is implying by saying "service is limited" because of vERAM. Unfortunately, this is open to interpretation.

As Kosmo said, non-radar is still a service which should be provided to aircraft on the ground or below radar coverage. Just because a controller is using vERAM does not mean that s/he can say "you're below my radar, taxi your discretion, call me in the air" to an aircraft at a Class D. I've heard controllers say that.

I'd worry that some controllers are using vERAM's limitations as an excuse not to provider service at all below 5000', except for at the majors.
