However, in the event of a shortage of available controllers, we kindly ask for your understanding and flexibility. In such cases, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Familiarize yourself with the specific procedures for Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport (LIRF) and Riga International Airport (EVRA). Ensure you are well-versed in the taxiways, runways, and any unique airport operations.

  • In the absence of active ATC, pilots will rely on the Unicom frequency for communication. It is crucial to use Unicom correctly, providing clear and concise information about your intentions, such as taxiing, departing, or landing.

  • Before pushing back from the gate, it is vital to check the METAR for both departure and destination airports. Stay up-to-date with weather conditions, including wind speed and direction, visibility, and any significant changes that may affect aircraft operations.

By adhering to these guidelines, we can ensure a realistic and enjoyable experience for all participants, even in the absence of active ATC. Your professionalism and commitment to maintaining the highest standards of aviation within Infinite Flight are greatly appreciated.
