This licence will permit us to work with the on-the-job instructor once we will be in the unit.
As I wrote in my previous post, once approach, the training would continue with our training units, which as we are all destined to places where military activities are present, training procedures in the military airfields!
The course is very intense, lasting a total of seven weeks in which we have to learn a lot of special procedures, successfully pass two tests theoretical and practice with the simulator 2D and 3D for about 30 exercises.
The most important difference you can notice from the civil traffic, the substantial difference that can be noticed is the speed that some aircraft (especially fighters) approach the circuit but the most important thing, is the introduction of vertical separation (1000 ft) between traffic within the CTR (Class D).
This aspect poses several difficulties at the beginning, especially in the planning of the sequence, but after a while becomes an ally. The high speeds are not only negative, but can help to be clear of traffic as soon as possible, when maybe your looking to have a level free for an outbound aircraft.
At this stage we are still at the beginning of simulation, but most important points to improve, are the RT, the knowledge of aircraft type and characteristics, very difficult at this stage, is to understand some tactical call signs from the pilots, as far as I remember since Monday, every day I found a new one, like: SHARK, MILAN, LYNX, RARO, LOMAS, PEGY, GISMO or VIPER :-))
Here below I let you with some traffic that I might find in the MILPORT CTR....if you have any question about the handling of military traffic, let me know, I will be glad to answer you :-))
See you soon with some more news!!!
