Hello. My name is Marc and I am an ATC controller in Infinite Flight.
As you may have noticed, there is a new ATC feature in Infinite Flight :smile:
I will explain you today, how you have to act on the ground. In my example, there is a plane “LX46” at KMIA Ground. It is a A330. LX46 wants to fly to LSZH. At the moment, it stands at its parking positions. So let’s help LX46 taxiing to the takeoff.
LX64: Request Pushback
Ground: Pushback approved.
Now you are allowed to pushback. As soon as you are ready for taxi, you request it.
ATTENTION! DO NOT TAXI WITHOUT CLEARANCE!!!
There are 3 options under “Request Taxi”.
- Active Runway: You use that when you don’t care which runway you want to take off
- Specific Runway: You use that when you want to taxi to a specific runway
- Parking: You use that when you want to taxi to parking
LX64 wants to taxi to RWY 12.
LX64: Request taxi to RWY 12
Ground: Taxi to RWY 08L. Contact tower when ready
Ground wants you taxiing to RWY 08L. You have to do this. Ground is boss.
When you’re first in line, you change frequencie to tower and request takeoff.
ATTENTION 1 : DO NOT REQUEST FREQUENCIE CHANGE! JUST DO IT (when you’re first in line)!!!
ATTENTION 2: DO NOT REQUEST TAKEOFF WHILE TAXIING! REQUEST ONLY WHEN YOU’RE FIRST IN LINE!!!
Tower: Cleared for takoff, LX64
Hooray! We made it! LX64 is airborne.
