      Welcome to the POSCON/ADX Forum!   08/22/2017

      Hello and welcome to the Positive Control and AirDailyX joint web forum! As promised on AirDailyX.net, this forum is the first of many additions that aim to change ADX from the "insolent European/American FS news breaker" into a true flight simulation community. A new company called Positive Control (POSCON for short) has taken over operations at ADX to help facilitate this objective. Who and what is Positive Control? POSCON is a group of aviation professionals, hobbyists and enthusiasts who intend to advance the simulation community to its full potential. We plan on providing users with a network and user interface that adhere to the technological capabilities of this decade. Our mission is to foster a realistic simulation environment through the use of network integration, automation and training incentives. In keeping to our company's mission of providing the most realistic and modern simulation network available, our team has been carefully selected and consists of professionals within their respective fields. These professionals include real pilots, ATC, investment bankers, retired professors, and journalists. How does this relate to AirDailyX? It is quite simple, ADX has an amazing following of very passionate individuals. By generating discussions, getting user feedback, and working with flight simulation developers, we will be able to create the biggest and most influential platform that the flight simulation community has ever seen.

      Join POSCON/ADX at FlightSimExpo 2018!   12/09/2017

      Interest in the first annual FlightSimExpo has taken off – with more than 25 organizations expressing initial commitment to making the new event in Las Vegas a huge success. Interested attendees are encouraged to follow the conference on Twitter (@FlightSimExpo) and ‘like’ the conference on Facebook (facebook.com/FlightSimExpo) to stay up to date.
      LAS VEGAS – December 8 – FlightSimExpo 2018, a new, community-driven flight simulation conference, will be held the weekend of June 9-10, 2018 at Flamingo Las Vegas Resort. Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip and minutes from the airport, Flamingo Las Vegas Resort has newly-renovated rooms, modern meeting space, a great rewards program, and features a Caribbean-style water park and tropical wildlife habitat.
      FlightSimExpo 2018 will feature a variety of interactive exhibits, and a host of educational and informative seminars from professionals across the aviation and flight simulation industries. In addition, there will be social events after conference hours for networking and connecting with other simulation enthusiasts, aviation professionals, and developers from across the simulation industry.
      The conference was formed by a group of community organizers from Boston Virtual ARTCC who have years of experience in flight simulation, aviation, and event planning. FSExpo plans to bring simulation enthusiasts, current and former aviation professionals, and anyone else who has an interest in flight simulation or aviation together to witness the advances and developments within the industry. This conference is truly community-driven: the venue, host city, and activities have all been determined by feedback from the community and developers. Early support from Orbx, X-Plane, and the new AirDailyX team helped make this event into a reality. At AirDailyX, we are proud to announce that as official sponsors of this event, we will stream live from several locations across the event and allow our viewers across the world to not only watch live but also participate in the different conferences and Q&A sessions. This event is going to be very special as we will host the Positive Control team to reveal ground-breaking developments and achievements to enhance the flight simulation industry.  We encourage everyone to participate in the planning of the conference by joining in discussions that will take place in a FlightSimExpo forum to be hosted on the new AirDailyX forum. That will be released along with our brand new web site in the upcoming days. Stay tuned for more information on these exciting developments! Early bird registration will start at just $50 for the weekend, and a 3-night stay at the FlightSimExpo special event rate will be approximately $135/night, including all taxes and fees.
      Visit www.flightsimexpo.com for more information about the event and venue. Interested attendees are also encouraged to follow FSExpo on Twitter (@FlightSimExpo) and like the conference on Facebook (facebook.com/FlightSimExpo) for updates.

  1. ADX Screenshot Contest Prizes

    Some option for the people that use X-Plane rather than the lesser ESP sims
  2. Gibraltar is a strange one, as far as i'm aware, the airport is owned by the MoD, but serves primerally civilian traffic, and has civilian controllers on contract through the standard civil UK atc authority, NATS
  3. A Study Level E190

    X-Plane has x-crafts and SSG, idk if any are good, but the SSG one looks alright
  4. The UK has quite a few airports that are not within "Britain" as such, like LXGB Gibraltar, LCRA Akrotiri, EGYP Mount Pleasant, FHSH St Helena etc. What would the intended status be of these sites from a controlling perspective; would they fall under a UK division, or the local one, such as Cyprus for LCRA? Additionally, one of the complaints i've been informed of from VATSIM is that controllers from the area around one of these fields, such as cypriot or Spanish controllers find it difficult to get approved on these positions, in part due to a different system, although I can assume other factors are present.
  5. Welcome! Let’s become friends

    A ridiculously busy event is great, but ground is where it's at; so much more exciting than APP or enroute. I'm from SE England, I guess EGKK or EGLC is the nearest airport, but not by UK scale really - they're each 70+km away, but still the closest commercial fields. I generally fly some commercial plane to airports with RNAV/circling approaches; deliberately choosing the difficult option for the controllers (after all, that's what they're there for right?)
  6. New ADX Site Feedback

    I think, certainly for people that don't visit the forum so often that there's significant potential for confusion between what is POSCON, and what is ADX, and where the line (if any) is between the two; it's not that clear
  7. Readback of clerance

    It's dependent on what's included in the clearance as read by the controller, and where in the world you are: In UK airports one will generally get "cleared to [airport] via [sid], initial climb [as appropriate, often not included if published], squawk. " It would then be required that you read all of those components back, and the controller will ask you again for it should you not reply. Under my VATSIM experience in the DANUBE FAB (BG/RO/MD), it'd be required to read back at minimum sq. code, altitude, sid and QNH (as given at clearance)
  8. Q&A about POSCON network

    According to the Letter to users (11/15/17) The aim is to have beta around, or slightly after FSExpo in June 2018
  9. Eurocontrol is simply a association to make coordination between ANSPs work better, without having much say over what these ANSPs in each country do; more like ICAO than a divisional area
  10. What does ECAC stand for/mean?
