A proof in concept with ATIS

October, 14, 2020

I recently wrote a post outlining why I though Ground should always be in control of ATIS, over Tower. Well here’s a proof in concept, courtesy of Shane H, an IFATC Officer.

“When deciding to take ground, I had remembered Trio’s post, which can be found here, about how ground should take ATIS, and boy, he was right. With how busy Heathrow was, ground had the least of worries with all of the controller changes and directions with approaches, it really makes the most sense if ground has it, thanks for the tip Trio!“

I’m glad to hear someone actually put that into practice, I was moderately surprised. Nice going Shane! He managed to capture a great time-lapse of his session that you should check out.
