I wish when controlling, you could tell an aircraft that isn’t on your frequency to “disreguard last message”. I just clicked on an aircraft flying over that wasn’t in my airspace and said “callsign, you’re in an active airspace, please contact XXX Tower on 000.00”. I know he probably thinks im a noob but there was no way for me to tell him basically that I didn’t mean to click the button.
There is already a disregard last message under the correction section in the ATC command bar. All you do is click that, and there is the disregard last message command.
You cannot click disregard last message when telling someone to contact tower. This would be something that is difficult to add because the aircraft wouldn’t be tuned into your frequency when you send the contact tower command.
A work around for this could be, if the aircraft does end up tuning in, click disregard last message and give them a frequency change approved command. While this is totally dependent on the aircraft tuning, it is definitely something you can do to make the pilot know that you truly didn’t mean to send the message.
It is also important to note that a lot of the times, pilots don’t even pay attention to this request unless they are under FL100. So if you accidentally click it and a pilot is well above tower altitude, then I wouldn’t worry about it.
Hope this helps!
You cant send a disreguard message without them being on your frequency…
Yes. Please reread my response above. I state:
“A work around for this could be, if the aircraft does end up tuning in, click disregard last message and give them a frequency change approved command. While this is totally dependent on the aircraft tuning, it is definitely something you can do to make the pilot know that you truly didn’t mean to send the message.“
😆 I know that!!! It’s obvious, I’ve stated multiple times “WITHOUT THEM BEING ON YOUR FREQUENCY”!!! I know if they tune into your frequency you can send disregard last message but there is no way for them to tune into your frequency if they are outside of your airspace.
Or, you could simply not on-guard them at all unless they actually need to be in contact with you. This is such a rare occurrence that I think Chris is right; just sending "freq change approved’ if they tune in is the best solution.
Or you could simply read my thread… @TaipeiGuru
What @TaipeiGuru and @Chris_Hoover are trying to explain is that even if you accidentally on guard an aircraft, there is a chance they don’t even tune in, but if they do, you can simply say disregard last message and then frequency change approve them. This is such an uncommon occurrence so both of them and myself don’t see a need for this feature, as we already have ways to work around this extremely uncommon accident. They are just trying to explain to you what to do if you accidentally incorrectly on guard an aircraft, and that they don’t see a need for this feature! However, if you see a need for it, you have done the right thing by creating a features request for it. Don’t forget to vote for your own feature request though!
You can’t send a “disregard last message” command unless the aircraft is on your frequency… otherwise the system responsible for running those commands would have no idea who to send it to.
