sim fast is just a program they put on the scopes to make it realistic. But you can just run it on a computer as well.
Exactly. At RTF before you go run sims on the real scopes with paid RPOs you run them on computers with a classmate being an RPO. I'd hate to do that over a zoom connection though, goddamn. Especially if the "scope" is displayed over Zoom instead of the backside data being fed to simfast on your own computer... but I'm guessing whatever license they have for simfast doesn't allow that so they have to run whole display over Zoom. Dang.

Meh. It’s just like real life now where it takes a CRJ an hour to turn 30 degrees.

You don’t get the normal functionality of a STARS scope obviously (history, PTL, p-cone etc.) because the rpo is in control but it’s a hell of a lot better than going through the same LOA, Ops, and Flight Data PowerPoints every day until your eyes bleed. And it genuinely does help with basic airspace understanding as far as different runway configurations, conflicts from satellites, and the standard way to run your traffic so the sectors around you don’t wanna murder you every time you sit down.

To bad they don’t let you train on real traffic
