== Detailed feature list ==
Available modes and session types:* FlightGear multi-player network connections* Solo sessions with (simulated IFR traffic)* Teacher–student tutoring sessions* For all session types: en-route centre or airport control mode* For all sessions in airport mode: 3D tower view available(teacher spawns and manipulates the traffic visible to the student)
=== Session environments ===FlightGear multi-player sessionsFor all session types:* Connection to FGMS networks* Strip exchange: handovers with other airport mode (for ATC-pie and [[OpenRadar]] instances in range* Weather: real world METAR retrieval* Flight plans: interface with [http://flightgear-atc.alwaysdata.net Lenny64's data base] (the ''de facto'' FG standard)positions such as TWR, incl. run-time retrievalGND, openingAPP, closing, filing and editing (work on local copies and manage sync with online statusDEP at a selected airfiled)* Inen-app announcement of ATC sessions on Lenny64's event page Solo sessions route centre (AI traffic):* CTR control mode, or configurable combination free positioning of TWRradar, GND, APP and DEP positions in no base airport mode* Voice instruction recognition (with Sphinx)* Pilot reador runway-back speech synthesis (with pyttsxrelated options)* Strip exchange: handovers to/from virtual ATCs* Weather: randomised* Airline choice and custom aircraft appearence* Configurable airspace rules and entry/exit/routing points* Adjustable difficulty (traffic density) Tutoring sessions (teacher with student):* Teacher spawns and manipulates traffic visible to student (flight and transponder settings)* Strip exchange: configurable ATC neighbours and handover supervision by teacher* Weather: wind control by teacher* Traffic snapshots and recall to repeat situations with the student
=== General ===
Common data sources:
* Airport and navigation data retrieved from [http://data.x-plane.com X-Plane] file sets sources (whole world base default file set included)* Editable aircraft data base (ICAO designators, cruise speeds, WTC, custom files acceptedetc.)
* Radar background images and hand drawings (integrated EuroScope/[http://www.vatsim.net VATSIM]/IVAO .sct sector file import)
* Ground elevation maps (can be generated automatically with a provided script)
* Editable aircraft data base (ICAO designators, cruise speeds, WTC, etc.)
* Real world magnetic declination lookup
=== General ===
GUI features:
* Graphical launcher at start to select mode and location
* Multiple window workspace (radar screens, strip racks and bays) saved by location
* Floatable/dockable panels and toolbars (see [[:File:ATC-pie-screenshot-toolbars.png|screenshot]]) and layout save/restore
* Traffic identification assistant
* Runway occupation/incursion detection
* Visible mismatches between assigned vectors and picked up positions* RoutePosition/vector conflict anticipation and separation incident alarm* Approach spacing hints for inbound sequencestrack vs. assignment mismatch warning system
Tower viewing (airport mode, requires FlightGear):
* Renders view of airport, aircraft, weather, time of day* Internally started or through connection to an external externally running instance* Controller pane Control panel to orient/zoom view or follow aircraft
* Additional views can be connected (for multiple camera angles)
Routes, vectors, conflicts:
* World route suggestions, presets, analysis, radar drawing and world map view* Convenient mouse input for vectors, taxi instructions and route/waypoint changes* Route presets, analysis, drawing and world map view
* Current leg and next waypoint display with geodesic calculations of headings and distances
* Route/vector conflict anticipation and separation incident alarm
* Approach spacing hints for inbound sequences
=== Communications ===Radio:* [[FGCom]] radio integration (not for solo multi-player and tutoring sessions; (possible use of externally running client), incl. ATIS recording (see [[:File:ATC-pie-screenshot-ATISdialog.png|feature dialog]] with pre-filled preparation notepad), multiple frequency transmissions and monitoring, frequency-specific sound level selection* Radio direction finding (not available on FlightGear MP networksRDF)and integration to radar* Controller-pilot data link communication (CPDLC)* Public text chat in MP with preset messages, auto-completion, predefined and custom aliases for context-sensitive replacements, sender blacklist to filter out trolls
ATC coordination:
* Private messaging with other ATCs (text "landlines")
* General ATC chat room
* Private messaging (text "landlines")* "Who has?" requests
