Some noob questions (ATC-SIM)

submitted by HoluRafa to /forum/atc-sim

Hey i started a couple of weeks ago, i searched all the forum but i still have some questions:

  • Is there any list with the trafic level of the airports?
  • Does the wind direction frequency of change have any influence on your score? (It's not on the formula)
  • When does the system considers a missed aproach?

Tkx in advance

1st question: There is no traffic level shown for each airport, but I think there is talk of something to be added for traffic level.

2nd question: No, it just changes the runways used by flights. Just keep a close on the wind and where your flights are taking off from; the landings don't matter which runway they land on.

3rd question: A missed approach occurs when you tell a flight to land to late and the flight can't descend in time to make a proper landing, of course you tell a flight to land until it meets the required flight level to give landing clearance. All of this depends on the altitude of the airport and distance from the runway.

On the comment; "the landings don't matter which runway they land on" in my experience playing the game, the wind does matter on landings. Too much cross wind will cause missed approaches. I would be careful and mindful of the wind direction.
