When controlling radar, when forming a line you need to take in consideration that it will be so much easier to conduct things long term if you’re organized.
When you open you may inherit a busy cluster of an airspace. You need to find a balance between still bringing those people in and organizing a line you’ll use for the entirety of your session.
Consistency, organization and uniformity are three adjectives that you’ll want attached to the description of what your line is.
It’s difficult to stick to creating a line. A good example of this is during this session. During a strategy change by Gary Hamann, Gary halted all arrivals.
There was no sneaking people in. He choose to start a new line, he stuck with it, and it pays off.
It may seem very inefficient to completely stop all arrivals just to organize, but it sometimes is needed and the best plan of action.
