EMA (Exercise Manager for Atcs) provides a huge storage of exercises: The order is maintained because :
- Every teacher / assistant create his own set of exercises, and
- Every exercise can be named, and
- for each exercise teacher can quickly see pilots positions.
Creating a exercise means set-up, for each client, data like Callsign, Select a plane, Select an initial position (i.e. parking stand A2, or another inflight position with a specified bearing, altitude and speed) and writing notes to the student. In this way a collection of exercises for every client is made and can be printed like a small book (paper A5).
When a new simulation session takes place, the classroom will be warned by teacher that exercise nr 25A is being loaded and each student (one student = one PC) can open its own book and see what is his goal. This is tested like the most efficient way to start a new session.
The simulator, however is ready in less than one minute since all PC are logged into Windows(tm).
