Controller's Available Times

Recommended Posts

I probably have asked this question befrore on some forum or other, but would it be possible to ask controllers to give some estimate (non-binding, of course) of the time they expect to stop controlling? I have been extremely frustrated most of the times I try to fly on-line after spending a half-hour or more to set up a flight, and then find the controller has left just as I get airborne. I know they have other things to do, and I really appreciate their effort, but I would just like to have an idea of when they are leaving to go do those other things.Dave Hinson

For me a dream would be if a controller could state somehow in procontroller at what time and for how long they will be online and a program like Whazzup would take that info and present it on a map. You could then filter out which stations have the intentions of being online at a given moment and then plan your flight according to that.This is probably an impossible idea but if would be nice! :)/krister
