When controlling on the Expert Server, I have seen an increase in the number of pilots who lack the basic skill of awareness on the ground. Here’s a few things you can do to make ATC’s day easier and improve traffic flow at a busy airport.
"Cleared for Immediate Takeoff"
Basically, this means take off as fast as possible. Don’t pretend to be Grandma Ruth turning at the pace of a snail. If you get this message, don’t dilly-dally, get onto the runway as fast as possible and takeoff. An Expert ATC won’t send this to you for no reason. Usually an aircraft on final, a long takeoff line, etc. are the only times we will send to you. Have some spatial awareness. If there’s an aircraft on final, get your plane out of the airport as fast as possible.
Ground Give Ways
When the airport is busy, please use some common sense when taxiing. Please. If there is a line on one taxiway, please follow the line instead of taxiing on a parallel taxiway risking life and limb so you can zoom ahead and cut everyone else off. This is not a Formula 1 Track.
Also, when ATC gives you a give way command, please follow it. Don’t be a New York Cab Driver and accelerate to 473 knots so you can beat the plane to the runway. Check the map, see where the plane is, and patiently wait for it to pass.
TL;DR:Grandma Ruth, Formula 1, NYC Cab Drivers, listen to ATC.
