Am I Allowed to Spot

I am in class right now and am bored. Am I allowed to spot at an active airport in IF?

Yes, so long as you do not disturb (if that’s the right word for it) any operations :)

But always pay attention in class ;)

Just get on a Cessna and use the display name as “spotting”. Head to a GA Gate on the Expert Server and go spot some planes!

Thank you, and don’t worry, we just had a quiz and the teacher is pretty lax about this kind of stuff

Yeah if you don’t interfere with anything and just sit there and spot that should be fine. I don’t suggest getting distracted in class though 😉

I agree with @GlobalFlyer1, you should pay attention in class. Only do this when you are done with all your classwork, when the teacher isn’t talking, and the teacher has approved the use of your phone/tablet. Make sure your phone/tablet is muted or you have earbuds to not disturb those that are working. If the rules disallow the use of a phone or tablet in class, don’t do this. I’m done with a project that today is an in class work day for, so that’s why i’m on IFC.

It’s not good to not listen in class. If the teacher finds out you will probably get in trouble.

Don’t worry, I got an A and when we have tests we don’t have any other work that day. Thank you for all of your concern though

So, I once couldn’t use IF for two weeks cause I was using IF under my desk. My phone was taken away for two weeks (from the school).
I suggest checking if this is okay with your teacher first

“Mr teacher, I find your lessons boring.
Can I do some spotting on my favourite flightsim during your lessons?”

I spot in Expert whenever I get bored and not in the mood to fly nor ATC.

Just to add something: back in my homecountry Indonesia, our cellphone rules were strict as hell. If you got caught looking at your phones the first time, it would be confiscated for a week. The next time would be a month. Third time: 6 months. Fourth (and subsequent offenses): 1 year. And we had someone who got into the third offense…
