Hi,
I am a french ATC working on a so called Free Route project but for the moment it is just a project which creates several new more direct routes. The aim is to allow to embark less fuel than the FPL route because the pilots are always given the more direct route possible by the ATC.
I wonder, is it worth to take more fuel in Dubai when you fly to Europe ?
It is difficult to know how much extra fuel will be consumed but I found that for an E145 15% of the extra fuel will be consumed on a 4 hour flight.
It is difficult to find jet fuel prices at airports.
What are the reasons to take more fuel than needed, is it often done ?

Regards, Greg.

There is a LiveATC feed covering high altitude airspace to the south and east of Calgary.

http://www.liveatc.net/search/?icao=ybp

However for the last few weeks it seems to be stuck on a dead frequency and all you can hear is static.

Is it possible to track the comms of aircraft en-route over your local area (high-altitude/non-local)?

I understand this may not be possible via LiveATC, wasn't sure.

If anyone can help on how to listen to flights en-route over Alberta, Canada, would really appreciate it.

Cheers

Was listening to Atlanta Tower this evening and this happened. Coyote on runway 26R reported by a couple pilots, but then disappeared. Airport ops tried to find it with no joy and the evening flow continued.

I heard a rumor that there was a pilot landing the wrong way several times.  Supposedly thiis happened last month.  Can anyone find a clip?

I was on WN1957 KLAS->KTUS 20140901 and I paid the $8 for "WiFi Internet Access".  I note that "WiFi" by itself is nothing but having a connection to the Internet -- not a subset of it -- is what I paid for.

During my ground time I was able to experiment by switching back and forth between Southwest WiFi Internet Access and Verizon Wireless 4G-LTE Internet Access.  (Big capital letters for emphassis.)

All of these worked fine on VZW and did not on SWA WiFi:
Liveatc.net the Android app showed all channels as "pending".
Google play store app downloads
VPN access

I *was* able to get to a liveatc feed source (icecast2 on a public IP) so there was nothing specific to blocking "ALL STREAMING", just e.g. liveatc.net.

I have sent SouthWest Airlines a friendly and informal letter to see what their response is.  If they respond favorably I will post here.  If they respond unfavorably we will escalate it.

if you- pilot is requested to maintain own separation in VMC what would you mind to keep wake turbulace rules?

I personally figure the guys who came up with the mileage for controllers on wake turbulence separation probably had access to a lot of fancy data generated from a lot of fancy tests/observations. A lot more than I ever personally would, anyway. Thus, I'd still try to maintain those same distances unless I felt really comfortable about remaining above the larger aircraft's flight path.

And in the controlled tower how could you know that the wake turbulance separation are not infringed, including when reduced saparation?

Is this still in the context of visual separation? If so, and assuming the pilot accepted it (after all, it's an agreement - not an ATC command), why would you care to do so?

Sure, you can try to be helpful and clog up your frequency with reminders to the Skyhawk that he's about to get close enough to a B744 to read the serial number off his APU... but you wouldn't have to. If the Skyhawk was properly advised ("caution wake turbulence") and accepted visual separation, it's the pilot's fault if he subsequently flies into the wake and his severed wings make separate landings (without clearance, nonetheless!) ahead of the remaining fuselage.
