The E-4B was at Patrick because of the airshow at Offutt (kind of messes up an alert bird)

We are looking for volunteers to take part in an online survey study examining air traffic controllers’ perspectives on simulation fidelity and its effects on training. The results will be used as a foundation to provide more structure and information to air navigation service providers regarding the best uses for different types of simulation in ATC training programs to better prepare trainees for the work to come. This project is conducted under the supervision of Professor Jonathan Histon.

In order to participate in the study, you are expected to have experience in the development and/or use of ATC simulations. This includes specifically:

•   Air Traffic controllers who have used simulation for training / participated in simulation studies
•   Controller Training designers / developers
•   Air Traffic Control instructors

This also includes all controllers in general as most have used simulation at one point or another to complete some form of training and may have some views or opinions as to how the fidelity of the simulation affected their training experience.

In the survey, you will be asked to answer questions pertaining to your experiences using simulation of varying degrees of fidelity, your views of the importance of fidelity when training for ATC both as ab-initio students and for recurrent purposes, and your critical feedback on simulation fidelity concepts developed by the researchers.

The survey takes approximately 40 minutes to complete, which can be finished whenever and wherever at your convenience. Please be noted that no login and passwords are required, but the survey can be completed in more than one sitting simply by saving your progress and continuing at a later time and place. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. Although no monetary remuneration will be given, your commitment is greatly appreciated. If you are interested in knowing the results, please contact the researcher directly via the email below. We will forward you a copy of the results when the study is completed.

To volunteer for this study, please click on the following link: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/hcomsurveys/atc-simulation-fidelity/. More detailed information about the study is included in the information letter provided before you start the survey.
For more information about the study, please contact:

The OKBK feed will be down for possibly several weeks or months due to delays in equipment relocation

I have listened to the recording several times and believe the last transmission to say," We see traffic at Malibu, Traffic White Cessna at Malibu State Park, Three Thousand Five Hundred, Ahhh will pass to his left side".

VRD412 from LAX to JFK diverted to KDEN after experiencing a cabin pressurization problem.  They performed an emergency descent to 10,000 feet.  The attached audio file picks up at the point where they start their emergency descent.  There's probably more audio available on the KDEN approach and tower feeds just didn't have time to search those archives yet  smiley

Found some audio on this.  It's been posted in the Audio Clips forum.

It was an emergency descent for a cabin pressurization problem.  I'm checking the audio archives...

Would there be any way to find out why this was diverted? I tried searching through the audio archives, but maybe I have my time zones messed up.

I think they are very lucky that the bricks in the front of the engine didn't come off and get sucked it. That repair would have been *very* expensive.
