  • ALLIAS CHANGES
    • Added "If Turbojet: Maintain 230 knots." to all SLC PDC instructions to comply with real world operations. Directives will be updated at a later date.









22APR2019

  • GENERAL
    • Corrected the example screenshot example for the ZLC Dropbox Setup pt.1 CBT in the Orientation section. The emails displayed for ATM/DATMs were old addresses and are no longer monitored. Please resubmit your requests if you used those older email addresses and never got a response.














20APR2019v2

  • ALLIAS CHANGES
    • New alias files available via the Dropbox live update system or local download.
    • Added a Facility Specific section to the Commands page "ATC TO PILOT TEXT" area.

20APR2019

  • FACILITY DIRECTIVES
    • For some time now, some material that could be found in the Local Control Facility Directive Quick Reference could not be found in the Facility Directive itself. Most changes were simply a transfer of that data and will not be mentioned per item here.
    • Clarification added to Local section for accepting radar handoffs from approach control only if the airport has full radar capability and if the controller has a radar endorsement.
    • Added the variable of "When Appropriate”, to DEL issuing ATIS data to pilots. This is for times when DEL never speaks to the pilot such as when a PDC was issued, or when no ATIS is broadcasting.

  • COMPUTER BASED TRAININGs (CBT)
    • Added instructions to the ZLC DISCORD SETUP CBT on how to run Discord in Admin Mode to prevent issues with using PTT for it while your controlling software is open.

15APR2019

  • PROCEDURE CHANGES
    • KBOI
      • Heavier traffic flow warrents traffic to land on the South runway by default (10R/28L)

  • All QR Pages:
    • Revised layout to provide a smoother and more comprehensive look.
    • A “General Overview” section has been added at the very top of the page that includes things such as Telephony Designation of the field, Airspace Class, Radar mode, RR/DNM status, ASDE-X status, PDC status.
    • Separated data for DEL, GND, and TWR similar to the ISR system and the Facility Directive format.
    • The ODP section now is in a table format just like the SID section
    • Many missing ODP info sections were added to multiple facilities
    • Standard Runway assignments and “Parking Terminals” provided in the GND section where applicable. (As of this update, only KSLC airport has this information, other facilities will be updated with this data at a later time)
