Hi. 
Does anyone know how I handle an emergency during a flight?
Today a plane on approach to land reported a "bird strike", it was quite far away and on the direct approach path with no possibility of shortening it.
And at the end I received a fine due to incorrect treatment.
How should I have managed the case?

Firstly, in the future you may want to mention your topic is dealing with Tracon!2012 to avoid confusion.

Secondly, a bird strike in this game should only happen on departure. So, your description of the situation seems to to contradict the emergency types described in the manual.  The following is from the Controlling Inflight Emergencies section manual regarding bird strikes: 
The pilot will call, "Departure, XXX would like to return to the airport due to bird strike.”
You must route the plane for a landing at the departure airport. The plane must land within 10 minutes. For each minute longer than 10 minutes a penalty of 200 points will be issued. If you sent the flight to center there will be a 1000 points penalty.

Bottom line - no matter the emergency you need to get the plane on the ground ASAP.

Thirdly, the points (fines) don't matter. 🙂

Hello.
Thank you for your answers.
You are absolutely right, I should have pointed out that it was about TRACON 2012.
But the plane arrived with a bird strike, and not one of the planes that were on the departure.
And so there was no way to speed up the approach.
If the plane was on the departure. I would know how to handle the case.
tnx.
