very often when i ask a controller a question about something that happened during his operation
i receive a " I am sorry ", " i apologize ", " I am sorry that i could not provide the quality … " or " i hope to see you again when i am controlling offering a better service ".
I dont know if they had to learn this during their ATC education, but please, in my case:
Stop this ! We are here for fun, we have a hobby, some people like me are stupid enough to fly around in IF just after coming from a real flight ( because it just makes so much fun to fly in IF )
When i ask a question, like just now about why i could not just taxi out of my parking position, then because i dont know what the controller was thinking or planning in this moment. And 99% of the answers are totally ok for me and i can totally understand their actions. There is no need to apologize! For what? Because i again wanted to do something that nobody else is doing ?
Like when i was new and took off in PHNL just to switch of the 2 right hand engines off my JAL747 to simulate a dual engine failure and Adam Mc.C. for sure thought this guy needs some medicine.
If, then i should apologize for not just doing what all others are doing.
We all make mistakes, and handling all these characters that are flying around as pilots in IF is for sure not the easiest thing some can imagine.
So there is no need to apologize and say sorry and all this. You all are doing a great job, coming from never heard about a vector to handling 80 planes that are all flying to one airport as if that is the last airport available on earth.
And i can tell you, i will never become a controller. I once had the chance to try it out when i was booked by the German ATC Academy in Langen where they simulate complete flights, us sitting in a simulator and the students are doing their communication and radar training.They asked me if i want to change role, so the ATC student took over my right seat in the SIM, and i took over his Radar screen : The trainer from the academy has never seen before in his live so many midair collisions in just a short time.
Continue your great service and please stop apologizing.
