Too much and too less information, both can be unfavourable while passing over messages between ATC units. REQUIREMENTS
There is a provision of tagging the aircraft under control in IVAC which must be fully utilised for the benefit of all controllers. By tagging an aircraft, the information put in e.g. SID'S, headings etc would be visible to all neighbouring controllers thereby reducing the need to communicate with each other for the same. These functions are best accessed by first selecting the aircraft and then pressing either of these keys as per requirement.
Given below are the details each controller must insert: Clearance Delivery
Insert the SID given in the clearance to the aircraft, e.g. For Molgo1A enter MLG1A, VEVAK 1A will be VVK1 A etc
Incase the clr given is to provide vectors to SID termination point,then insertvVECTOR as tag. Ground Control
No information is needed to be inserted by this controller. When clr del is not online and ground assumes it's functions , then he would tag the aircraft as above. Tower Control
No information is needed to be inserted by this controller.Only when an aircraft does a go-around then tag the aircraft with "MSD".... meaning Missed Approach ! Approach Control
If a direct is given to the aircraft then insert the "cleared to waypoint" as it's tag.
- Tag the aircraft with the "SPEED" it has been asked to maintain. When cleared for the approach, tag the approach type e.g."ILS" or "VOR" .
- When cleared for holding , insert "HOLD" as it's tag.
- When cleared direct to a waypoint insert the name of the cleared to point.
- Insert the speed, if any specific speed has been given to the aircraft.
- Insert "hold" if aircraft is cleared to point for holding.
- An aircraft in urgency asking for priority should be tagged "URGENT"
