Airbus Altitude Callouts Request
Hello there! Today, I will be renewing a request created in 2016 which is the Airbus altitude callouts. You might have noticed in some videos or anywhere related to Airbus, that the altitude callout is different to the Boeing one. They both have different voices and different callout speeches. The Boeing altitude callout (which is the main callout in Infinite Flight) will say 1000, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 (plane touches down). As opposed to the Airbus callout (not found in Infinite Flight) which will sound like 1000…(same as Boeing)… 100, 50, 40, 30, 20, retard-retard-retard, 10. Retard: When the Altitude Callout announces “retard” the pilot is meant to reduce thrust to 0 and be ready to reverse thrust.
Why is this necessary would you think?
So in my opinion, it is really necessary for professionalism, realism and would help you land the plane (if you need help with the callouts) on Infinite Flight. Regarding professionalism, I feel like that having Airbus callouts in a Boeing plane lacks professionalism (my opinion) and of realism. What Infinite Flight could do is add the Airbus callouts to Airbus aircraft and would keep the Boeing callouts to Boeing aircraft. You might think to yourself that it results in the same thing, but not really. Knowing when to pull the thrust to 0 is an important point for the touchdown. That’s what I mean by helping people who listen to the callouts.
I obviously know that there are a lot of people who use the APPR system without bothering about going inside the cockpit but to those who use it, I feel like it is necessary?
EDIT No1: In-Flight Assistant is a way of getting these alerts but I feel like it would be way simpler for Infinite Flight to add them, obviously if they get the rights.
Do you think it’s necessary?
