Consistency with commands

November, 10, 2021 by Kyle Boas

Being consistent can really lighten your workload. You will know where and when aircraft will be without thinking.

I tell this to every one of my Radar trainees. Consistency is key. Even something as simple as using the same heading and altitudes.

Say you’re controlling Centennial Airport (KAPA), runway 35R is in use. Heading 130, 170, 260, 320 clear. You’re done. Repeat.

Staying consistent will allow you to focus on other things, because when you turn an aircraft crosswind you know they’ll be on heading 130.

It’s a small detail that will really help.
