Aircraft Priority
« on: January 30, 2015, 09:28:57 AM »
Hi there guys!

My name is Luke, I'm currently studying to become an ATC in Spain, I'm half American half Spanish. I have my FEAST and DART (FEAST2) test in about 20 days, and I'm using this app called SkyTest. I pretty much get everything but there are some things I still don't understand, like this one;

The app clearly says that red shows the highest priority, then blue, then green, then yellow. It also says that faster aircraft must have a higher priority, so, in this case, why would flight 37 have a higher priority than flight 19??? Flight 19 is flying at 120 knots and flight 37 at 100 knots. I chose option C (2 aircraft) because from my point of view, flight 19 has to be the first to land, and it seems I was right. But still, why would flight 37 have a higher priority????

Thank you guys, please excuse me if the answer to my problem is obvious, as I am completely new.

Luke
