Hey all, so in case you didn't see the announcement video, we launched a new scripted podcast last Wednesday called Extremities. It's all about why and how people live in earth's most isolated and extreme settlements. In season one, we tell the story of Pitcairn Island--a small British territory in the South Pacific with just 50 people. It's 300 miles/500 kilometers away from the nearest other inhabited place, 3000 miles/5000 kilometers away from the nearest city, and 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometers away from its capital city in London. The twist and turns that Pitcairn takes through history and the explanation of why and how Pitcairn still exists today are fascinating, in my biased opinion. Episode 1 is out now, episode 2 comes out tomorrow, and I'd love it if you'd give it a listen. Extremities is available at the following places: Apple Podcasts: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/extremities/id1467292185 Anchor: anchor.fm/extremities Spotify: open.spotify.com/show/3yXc8WTwbZcieQhdr3Y6ao Google Podcasts: www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy9iZWJhNzBjL3BvZGNhc3QvcnNz Stitcher: www.stitcher.com/podcast/anchor-podcasts/extremities Breaker: www.breaker.audio/extremities Overcast: overcast.fm/itunes1467292185/extremities Pocket Casts: pca.st/OW0M Podbean: www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/e7bgg-9466c/Extremities-Podcast RadioPublic: radiopublic.com/extremities-8gKAOL I hope you enjoy! -Sam

4:35 Your INCORRECT GRAPHIC does not match with the spoken words. The graphic shows "<24,500 ft" or LESS THAN 24,500 while the spoken words describe Maastricht air control in control of traffic GREATER THAN 24,500 ft. The correct graphic would be ">24,500 ft". Please correct your graphic.

Where did you get your info? It’s like 75% correct. You create terms when there are already agreed upon terminology and in many cases phraseology. One example is your use of “horizontal” instead of “lateral” and your inability to differentiate between ground control and ramp control. Also, “tower control” is actually “local Control” (FAA) or “Aerodrome control”. The telephony used to contact those controllers are the name of the facility followed by the position name such as “Heathrow Tower” or “Heathrow Ground”. Additionally there are many differences between ICAO and FAA procedures and terminology. Did you spend any time in the FAAO 7110.65Y or ICAO Doc 4444?

what happens if there is a fire in the ATC building of some sector ? Who handles the planes if they evacuate the building ? What in case of an Earthquake and also all nearby ATC buildings need evacuation ?

Can we have a game where we control an air traffic sector? That sounds like an amazing concept.

It's an OK video. But traffic is much more complex in the USA.
RazorModz Vor Monat
That area of Eastern England is where I live and you're absolutely correct, pretty much the only planes we see are those that are taking off or landing at Norwich airport (EGSH) and they're generally fairly small aircraft.

How hard is it to make a computer system that can route planes on its own? Sounds like they're not even trying that.

They seem to have one. But when there are multiple options, the airlines can choose what they want.

Don't the planes just use autopilot?^^ Or does the autopilot data come fom the ground?
Keno Fuhrken
Keno Fuhrken Vor 2 Monate
The autopilot can't avoid other airplanes. Plus, instructions are given by the controller to the pilot who then can dial in the appropriate heading, altitude or speed or enter the value into the flight computer, in both cases the action is then executed by the autopilot.

The worlds first airport with no air control on site, no tower, opens in December 2019, Scandinavia Mountains, which is a step towards going towards a system built on AI. SAAB and LFV (Luftfartsverket) are working on one. Airbus is also working on something similar.
