Re: FNO Feedback

I didn't provide anything through the feedback system. However, I'll say that Mr. Woerly did a phenomenal job at CTR. Flying PDX-LAX, I had the opportunity to observe him marionette all the tracks with ease. With the given traffic loads, he was easily working the same amount as 6+ real world sectors...

Re: SAMPLE COMMUNICATIONS

To throw another wrench into the gears.

Localizers are used at Seattle all the time, even in VMC. Take a look at the charted visuals (BAY, HUSKY, MALL), joining the localizer is part of each visual procedure.

Re: The trappings of center...

Frank, Very good point, and something that I'll keep in mind. It wouldn't have helped in this case as the first two a/c were already assigned the ILS 10L, and the third a/c requested the RNAV. In retrospect, in the situation I encountered, once the third a/c requested the RNAV 10L, I should have hav...

The trappings of center...

Part of why I love working center, yet simultaneously why I hate working center. Group flight of three into PDX on the HHOOD4. Two of them were coming in via the JKNOX transition and the other via JOTBA. Had to turn the lead a/c on the JKNOX transition on a 270 heading for a bit to slide the guy com...

I'll be on terminal leave awaiting official retirement. Since I live in Seattle, count me in.

Teamspeak Coordination Channels

Teamspeak is an incredibly valuable tool, however, I'd like to point out a couple things which should be common sense: - If a controller is sitting in the channel they are actively controlling (i.e. if I'm working Center and am in the Center Teamspeak Channel), that is not an open invitation to othe...

Re: KSEA BRAVO AIRSPACE TRANSITIONS

Not sure why IFR traffic would be requesting to transit through the Bravo... But anyway... The VFR transitions were created years ago, well before the Seattle airspace redesign in 2012. Up until last summer (when I moved back east) when I was flying out of BFI and RNT, they were not being approved. ...

Re: vATIS

I hate to necro a thread, but a question on the new version of vATIS. Back when I had fewer gray hairs and fewer gin & tonics under my belt, I remember with vATIS you could bring up a window and select (via checkbox) what NOTAMs you wanted, along with what runways were in use. Is that no longer a fe...

Feedback

The feedback page off the main ZSE site is broken, so I’ll leave this here.. Tonight I flew KONT to KBFI.. then solely to screw with Don… Flew KBFI to KSEA in a B744. The entire experience was awesome! vZSE did a phenomenal job this evening, and the way you sectorized S46 really showed your planning...

New Green Blip Battle Station

So, after coming back from a 6 month deployment to the wife wanting to move to another place in the area... finally about 80% done with the move (finish next week). Got my new ATC station setup in the new place. I'll admit I went overboard on the lights (which was a pain to sync to audio). For those...

Free Monitors

Anyone in the Seattle area that could use a couple free monitors? I've a couple (2) old BenQ BL3200PT monitors that I'm looking to get rid of. Before I go to Craigs List, or donate them, figured I'd offer them to ZSE members first. They're free. Only conditions are you have to be in the Seattle area...
