Handoffs at same alt too close BOS
1 year ago
In the real world, these handovers are been given to you by another controller. That person would be quickly out of a job or in jail if they were deliberately flying jets to within 3 miles or 1000 feet of other aircraft. Just doesnt happen without major poo hitting the fan.....
Was just thinking the same thing a few days ago. Had progressed to a hundred landing/hand offs at EGLL and was then put into unavoidable confliction with a handover. Having been an ATCO for 20 years, this is totally unrealistic. You would never receive handovers which are in confliction with an aircraft you have just taken over and close to the edge of your radar cover. Handovers are ALWAYS deconflicted prior to handover.
