This sim has given us the opportunity to simulate a wide variety a real world flight scenarios, however with all these possibilities I feel as though there have been problems in terms of communication. Have you ever felt that you couldn’t do something that in the real world is totally realistic and legal but a lack in communication options leads to a “please check help pages” response from ATC? I’m sure many have an the goal of this feature would be to give pilots and controllers a clearer line of communication without having to add tons of new commands.
Example: A Pilot wants to fly VFR around a city to look around and spot different landmarks. The pilot would simply type “City Tour” in the the remarks text box and it would appear to any ATC. This would be beneficial in this scenario because approach would now have a general understand of where the vfr traffic could be and could vector appropriately.
Example 2: Another scenario could be if a pilot would like to practice ILS approaches instead of fly visual patterns. The pilot could type “Practice ILS” in the remarks text box and controllers would know how to handle the aircraft.
Just to be clear I would like this to be just a small text box in the bottom of the Flight Plan page. The text box would ideally have a character limit so information can be concise and easy to understand.
I hope you guys see this has a useful feature that will allow for increased realism in the sim! Thanks for reading!
