ATC IssuesA place where pilots may enter the 'lions den' that is Air Traffic Control in complete safety and find out the answers to all those obscure topics which you always wanted to know the answer to but were afraid to ask.
I played on something which I think was TRACON (SoCal?) in the mid '90s. I recall we had no speakers on the PC I was using but every time someone 'spoke' it wouldn't accept a heading or level change until they finished, hence all departures ended up being held on the ground whilst I tried to get traffic on the multiple ILS' . A better one was 'Heathrow' designed for the 'original' 48k Sinclair Spectrum in the early 80s; the software was written by Mike Male who was a Heathrow controller at the time (HD will remember him) It must have been successful because he made enough money to buy himself a TB9 G-BIAB, but he didn't get to fly it much as Talkdownman tended to hog it.
Thanks everyone. There are so many flying sims out there I thought there would be a lot more ATC stuff too - especially for us that are interested.
I tried the ATC-SIM, which looks cool, but you got to remember a string of commands short cuts... and do aircraft really go fast like 250 on departure and do 140 when 12 miles final? seems not so real that way. I also thought the arc of turn would be different based on speed.
