Who is following who?

Sequencing can be a hard concept to grasp as a new pilot or controller, in Infinite Flight. Sometimes it’s best to try to visualize this. Use a pen and paper if needed to draw out these scenarios, here is two examples of how you would re-sequence aircraft remaining in the pattern. For both examples, all aircraft have already been sequenced.

First example:

  • N1T3 is number 1 for 27L on left base
  • V-AA is number 2 for 27L on left downwind
  • G-KWY is number 3 for 27L on left crosswind
  • No one is on 27R

V-AA asks for a runway change to 27R

  1. Give V-AA a pattern entry and clearance for 27R.
  2. You sequence G-KWY number 2, traffic to follow is on left base

Second scenario:

  • N1T3 is number 1 for 27L on left base
  • V-AA is number 2 for 27L on left downwind

  • N1KB is number 3 for 27L on left crosswind
  • B-M23 is number 1 for 27R on right base
  • G-KWY is number 2 for 27R on right crosswind

V-AA asks for a runway change for 27R, V-AA is on left downwind.

  1. You give V-AA a combined pattern entry to enter left base for 27R and sequence number 2, behind G-KWY. Then a clearance for the option make right traffic for 27R.
  2. You re-sequence G-KWY to be number 3 traffic to follow is on left downwind
  3. You re-sequence N1KB number 2, traffic to follow is on left base
