This is not a gripe or attempt to belittle those that are not advanced atc. These are just observations I have made from working as atc on the advanced server. These corrections will not only make the Atc’s job more pleasant but also make you a better pilot.
- There is no need to report you position after atc has cleared you to land. If you are “cleared to land” then unless you wish to change to another runway or change from touch and go to full stop then please don’t tell me your position.
- Remaining in the pattern should only be used if you intend on taking off, turning left/right and doing a touch-n-go. Basically if you are leaving the airport to go anywhere other than directly back to same runway then use departing straight out,etc.
- When you request taxi, the atc responds with "taxi to runway 31L, (Contact tower when ready). That second part is what I want you to focus on. The ground controller is telling you to contact tower whenever you are ready to depart. There is no need to request frequency chance. Which brings me to my final tip.
- Please do not request take off unless you are first in line holding short at runway. This crowds the frequency and confuses the atc and sometimes we can not see who is next to take off because of traffic.
I hope that at least one pilot reads this and makes these simple changes.
