in addition to the warnings we have, I’ve seen more and more topics of pilots getting upset because ATC sometimes don’t always see pilots either taxing without permission or through grass/terminals. So I’ve thought of a possible implementation which could help this issue.
How it works…
Basically, as soon as any pilot has loaded into an Airport, an automatic speed restriction is engaged for 5knotsGS. This is disabled the second the pilot communicates with ATC. So basically, if the pilot starts taxing without permission, ATC will get a warning around that Pilots Name.
Another suggestion would be to implement the same system for a Hold Position command. If the pilot is given this command, they won’t be able to exceed 5knots which should be slow enough for any possible incursions to be resolved. Again, it is then disengaged when ATC issues the next command.
Here’s an example of how it might look…
Sorry if the explanation is all over the place
So in this situation, Singapore 840 has been instructed to Hold Position. Now by this point I have switched back to tower to clear a plane to land.
However, because the pilot hasn’t stopped, I recieve a warning on the Ground Frequency. A warning appears around the Aircraft and next to the command page shortcut.
Also, the pilot would also recieve a warning.
There would be a neater version of this idea, so feel free to comment ideas below.
