Congratulations Phil,
I look forward to working with you in the future. I hope you don't mind old school views on things.  Seems that's what I'm good at.

Gander Oceanic (CZQO) / ADS-B
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:53:40 AM »
A question: Is oceanic going to start simulating ADS-B any time soon? As I understand it, GAATS+ has been online since 2015 utilizing this sort of surveillance.  In events like CTP, it would streamline traffic management and keep comms to a minimum.  Also, oceanic clx for East bound is done on a text base, well before the a/c enters the GOTA, and in some cases even before they depart an airport. 
My thinking is that if we keep current with real life, it will make all stakeholders happy to participate.

Cheers
