Major Airports

Recommended Posts

Does POSCON intend to add the "Major Airport" and "Special Center" designations as they are used on VATSIM? These designations, once applied to an aerodrome or sector, require a user to undertake additional, location-specific, training before controlling there. This is usually a differences and special procedures theory course, followed by 1:1 training on the particular position.

On VATSIM, at least from the point of view of the major airports, they mostly don't fall in line with the amount of traffic that you actually get - EGKK and EGCC have way more traffic than LHBP.

It could definitely be done better with some thinking

I don't think that this is done due to traffic levels. Most of the time, it is done due to special procedures in use at the airport in question. This can be in response to a real-world incresae in traffic but, generally, online traffic levels are not the reason for the use of the above designations on VATSIM.
