what?Tower uses the DFW map. Tracon uses Socal tracon map.
RTF is RTF...whether you go thru for an up/down or a stand alone tracon.Irish, I'm pretty sure the Tracon curriculum at the Academy is different from the RTF curriculum...so the maps one may use for RTF when already checked out in the tower of an up/down facility may be different from maps one may use in a Tracon class (heading to A11, N90, NCT, SCT, etc).
(I'm not sure if OP is referring to RTF or Tracon class. Dan appears to be talking about Tracon class, not RTF).
Yeah that's a better point. Touche.Yes, there are conflicts built in , but not to trick you , just to ensure you have a basic understanding of the rules and how to apply them.. It's all good..
teaching concepts and you using them correctly is the goal.
good luck to all.. this is the greatest job in the world..
And if you know how to work real pattern traffic and buck the system you will most likely be unsuccessful. No matter what you think you know listen to your instructors and pay heed to what they say. FOLLOW ALL ACADEMY ATC RULES!There are no TRICKS built in the problems.. If you know the rules and apply them properly, it's easy....
