Good afternoon IFC,
This Feature request is more so geared toward a permissive/permissions feature to IFATC. Here is the justification we all have mashed that report button or seen posts on the forum or IFFG about pilots not following procedures in absence of a controller. These individuals speed past other AC, cut off others on finals and blatantly disregard airmenship etiquette entirely. My proposal is that a permossion is added to certified IFATC to allow them to ghost inflight outside of control duties.
The control measures for this would be simple. All ghostings would be verrified with documented proof and justification from the IFATC member. So essentially it has probable cause and evidence given. I.e aircraft taxiing through eachother or taking off as another is on short final with near collision.
Now of course with anything there are negatives one is we may not catch all rule breakers but I believe we could set an defined order that even when IFATC controllers are not present your actions are still bring watched.
Thank you for your time and consideration
