[REAL ATC] Gulfstream CAUSES CHAOS ON DEPARTURE at Seattle!

*Listening to this was both funny and frustrating!!* Why this confusion for a flight which is intended to go directly to the east and cross the pond towards Europe?

@Ken Clark Unfortunately the full recording (including the pilots tequesting and receiving an IFR clearance by Ground) has been deleted from the source where I found it. But I know that particular case quite well. They got their IFR clearance, asked to depart from the longer runway due to TOW and were lead to believe they would pick up IFR after departing VFR- Then chaos followed.

@d00t amazing how many people choose a narrative without bothering to research the facts. ATC was entirely in the wrong here. The pilot had no way of knowing that ATC tower didn’t have all the correct information at hand, as they should have done, the pilot had done everything correctly. I imagine that he thought there was a reason for where ATC were sending him, until he realised they were asking the impossible from him, and he didn’t want to land, he wanted to depart..get out of the airspace altogether. It’s a very fortunate thing that nobody got killed in this balls up.

People need to know the full story here: „The facts are available by listening to the feed from Ground. An IFR clearance to Athens was given and flight plan filed. Vistajet 868 asked to depart via the opposite runway due to the aircraft being too heavy for the active runway (obstacles on departure flight path). Ground agreed this could be done only as a VFR departure. When transferred to the Tower frequency the ground controlled did not pass on the details to them correctly. Consequently, the Tower thought they intended to reland. The aircraft was then asked to manoeuvre in an area too small for it due to it’s heavy weight and minimum speed.“

This interaction should be used as an example of how a Captain, First Officer or GA pilot should always maintain there composure when speaking to ATC. Regardless of the situation, An ATC’s job is to provide a safe, orderly flow of traffic. ATC controllers are human, so frustration and anxiety can creep into their brain as well. The pilot handled the complete interaction perfectly by not taking anything personal. Well done, sir!

@Matt B even tho they had filed IFR already, they did not pick up an IFR clearance from the ground. The pilots are wrong for doing this. As per your comment about the ground controller not passing along the info to tower, that’s not the case bc he was squawking VFR and did not have an IFR squawk code. Also while departing, the tower controller did try to confirm the pilots intentions and they failed to communicate properly to the tower controller. The pilots are clearly in the wrong and should definitely be given a phone number to talk to the FAA so that they can learn US NAS procedures. It’s not that hard to pick up IFR on the ground at a towered airport.

@Beena Plumber Thats not the case, look at the posts above, the Vistajet did file IFR flight plan but was too heavy so they said depart VFR and once airborne youll be set up for IFR, ground failed to relay that to tower and the pilot had no idea why they were being turned around

Which pilot? The guy who took off for Greece without a flight plan or IFR clearance and expected to file it with the busy local controller while in the pattern? The guy who confirmed he was VFR before leaving the ground? I guess it does take nerves of steel to fly when you're that low-functioning and self-obsessed. I'm glad they're all safe.

that stuff happens in aviation , once I departed and the ATC calls to vector me back to the downwind , I asked the pilot monitoring to tell the ATC the go around traffic needs the downwind vectors and we need to remain on the departure leg , the ATC just apologized and recleared us to remain on the SID , it's common for the controllers to get mixed up which and whom is going where. Now this VISTA JET got a VFR departure which was enough to trigger their attention that there is a confusion with the ATC .

Knowing the area, this asshole took off in MVFR/IFR conditions, in busy Seattle airspace, after taking off from Boeing Field, and expected to be given an airborne IFR clearance? Then had the nerve to request a left turn while on final into BFI, which would've turned them into Renton airspace. WTF doesn't begin to describe how dangerous this entire situation was... Also, the non-relay of ground with pertinent information. WOW. (That deserves a paddlin')

Pilots had an IFR plan submitted and confirmed, but ground control moved them onto an alternate runway for weight issues. That departure was VFR only, so ground control said the pilots would pick up IFR airborne. Not usual, but not uncommon. However, ground control didn't communicate the change of plans to the tower or departure ATC, who figured the aircraft was doing circuits and gave instructions as such that would be fine for an almost empty aircraft doing circuits, but the aircraft in question was fueled for an 11 hour flight with passengers so wasn't manoeuvring as the controller expected.

@Sky Dive it was explained better in another comment. Basically they filed for IFR but needed to take off in the opposite direction as filed due to their weight. They were cleared to take off VFR and transition to IFR but the tower never got this information. Goes to show how such a tiny bit of miscommunication can become so dangerous

Well that was a complete balls up by ATC. Had them conducting a right base into on coming traffic lol wtf. Then no suggestions from the Captain on vista686 to make left turn or anything? Surprised the vista686 didn’t question what atc was thinking with the downwind departure and right turn after take off from 32L. Why not just request a VFR departure hdg to intercept outbound track and just maintain 1500ft till clear of the airfield then pick you your ifr clearance with you request for climb? The 1500ft requirement call from ATC would’ve been the trigger for me to question things at the holding point. What a shmozzel

See the comment near the top which explains what happened. It appears the pilot received IFR clearance to Athens from Ground and a flight plan filed, accordingly. Then for reasons explained, a different runway then originally anticipated was used for takeoff, which required a VFR departure. All of this was discussed between the pilot and Ground, and approved. Ground did not relay enough info to the Tower which led them to believe the plane was attempting to reland. Then chaos ensued...

It was, ground controller put the on an alternate departure that was VFR only, and told the pilots they'd pick up their IFR plan clearance airborne.

The title is not fair to the pilot. He did nothing wrong, the ATC's on duty did not follow proper handoff and communications guidelines/protocols. Assuming he filed a flight plan (which I believe is handled by company and not the pilot itself). Maybe the ATC should call Kennedy Steve for a lesson in situational awareness. It is a big jet from which you can assume it is not relanding within 20 minutes. Sometimes not assuming things can be the mother of all F-ups.

When ATC told a departing plane to fly base I was a bit confused because I usually only hear that instruction given for planes arriving. But the pilot copied the instruction and started flying a south base even though he was departing north, so I figured everything must be okay. However when ATC said that 686 is overrunning their turn for final I almost crapped my pants. Then when ATC calls the flight 848 at 4:34 I did a facepalm. But I have to keep in mind that a bad day in the office for me means that someone can’t print or the coffee pot was empty. A bad day in the office for a controller means that people die. It’s such an incredibly stressful job that there’s a maximum age limit for new controllers, just like there’s a max age limit to join most (if not all) branches of the military. I commend the pilot of 868 for staying calm and being polite. He had every right to be upset about the danger he was put into but he was professional enough to know that his main priority was the safety of the souls onboard, and that there will be plenty of time to complain later.
