missed hand offs by Bobzebear to /forum/atc-sim

It may depend on the height of the airport above sea level or how close the hand off point is to the airport. From what I noticed, aircraft need to be at a certain height to be handed off. Two airports I noticed this at: Osaka Kan Sai, aircraft need to be at least 5000 feet to be handed off because the hand off points are very close to the airport, and Las Vegas due the height above sea level, but I forget what the minimum height requirement is for aircraft to be handed off their.

Some noob questions by HoluRafa to /forum/atc-sim

1st question: There is no traffic level shown for each airport, but I think there is talk of something to be added for traffic level.

2nd question: No, it just changes the runways used by flights. Just keep a close on the wind and where your flights are taking off from; the landings don't matter which runway they land on.

3rd question: A missed approach occurs when you tell a flight to land to late and the flight can't descend in time to make a proper landing, of course you tell a flight to land until it meets the required flight level to give landing clearance. All of this depends on the altitude of the airport and distance from the runway.

Tell me about your nightmare :) by lumptom to /forum/atc-sim

My "nightmare" is JFK Intl. The heading of the runways is the least of my problems, though they are a challenge, it is when I have a bunch of departures and arrivals. The arrivals come in close intervals and I have to try and to keep them from getting to close to each other. When I think I'm all good, another arrival shows up from different spot and is heading for into their path. All of these arrivals cause delay of departures.

Departing plane and langing plane on the same runway does not cause violation by federbear to /forum/atc-sim

I have done this to and never got a violation, the only violation I get with planes on the runway is if I have a plane lined up on the runway and I accidently tell the plane behind it to takeoff, but I don't know what to make of this but I'm glad there is no violation, unless the landing plane hasn't slowed down enough.

Maybe try setting the planes at different headings that have them flying away before sending them to their vector point.

Idk.

Heavies do land on 16l/34r, but only if their gate is close to that runway.

Hardest Airport by shads to /forum/atc-sim

Chicago O'Hare is not too bad given that it is the busiest airport in the world since 2013 I think. The hardest airport from what I have noticed while playing is JFK. There is always an arrival for each one you land and another departure for every takeoff and vice versa.

More on the Flow Rate by airplanes4life to /forum/atc-sim

I understand your point. However, just because your at a big airport does not mean you will have moderate traffic all the time, well any airport for that matter, but there will be times even at big airports when the traffic flow is light because it is about the time when there is the least amount of traffic. Any heavy traffic is either an arrival bash or a departure bash. Besides, your idea for an adjustable traffic rate, I do not know what to say of it, but there are airports on here with generally low traffic rates that could help new players get accustomed to the game. I'm not saying your idea is bad, but I don't I think it would fit the simulator feel. Just saying.

I like the idea of a weather setting, but emergencies, I'm not sure about, but I like your idea. From one fellow atc member to another,
