The Control Room Floor / Re: Pilot Expectations, cont...
« on: July 06, 2021, 06:34:12 PM »
Do something like Uber. Pilots can send feedback to controllers(which is already a thing), and controllers can leave feedback on a pilot. Hopefully, pilots will take it as constructive criticism.

YES! Ebay or Uber like feedback. Points given or taken away by a mostly automated system that would have input components to it on the part of ATC or the Pilot. In a very basic analogy think Ebay feedback.  I leave the seller feedback as the buyer and the seller leaves me feedback.

Also, the Pilots leaving Controller feedback isn't centralized currently and the pilots have no way of knowing a controller feedback rating.  Most, if not all, ARTCCs/FIRs don't even display a feedback metric on their website by controller.
