Um I was just updating what the person that posted above me asking about tower PV's!This is not helpful, STL2CVG. We want answers on what the new PV will be like, not the date of your future PV. Unless you have answers....:hurray::tap::hug::hugs:
See ya manana!
Our lead told us we could use those shortcuts, but another one said you couldn't.I am taking the PV next week, and I have been told by my lead intructor (who knows the .65 by heart) that we cannot use Charlie-India-Alpha... we have to use India-Alpha. Mainly because ground is easy as it is, and using India-Alpha creates conflicts. Also, say you have a APT 1 going from the crash shack to Spartan Aviation, we cannot use just Hotel anymore, we have to use India-Hotel. Hope this helps
Note: This is just for Tower classes.This may have already been covered, I apologize for being lazy..
While running TSS scenarios in the sim is the entire class present? i.e. your classmates in the sim lab behind you able to watch? What about for the PV?
Just make sure before you launch a Runway 16 departure, you know where all of your VFR pattern traffic is. When they drop off the radar and just touched down, sometimes they might be a little difficult to see. You also might be tempted to take a quick glance at the radar and see no conflict for the 16 departure totally missing the guy that just touched down. If that's the case and you launch the 16, bad news bears!Our class is getting ready to PV tower in 2 weeks. No doubt, nerves are the biggest enemy of us all. We are half way through the TSS scenarios, and according to hear-say things won't get much more complex. We have simultaneous T/G's, multiple VFR's inbound for the FS, and a rack full of IFR's arrivals and departures. In addition to all the other recommendations mentioned on other PV discussions, "pad management" is another aspect that seems to make or break many during busier runs.
