ATC nearly making you crash

So this happened to me earlier today:

I was approaching OMDB. The ATC gave me an assigned heading and altitude which I followed. 5 minutes later, I was a couple miles away from crashing into mountains and I started requesting an altitude change to avoid the mountains. The ATC gave me a heading change but I was still on a collision course with some mountains. This happened on the expert server by the way.

I’d like to know, has something similar happened to one of you guys?



I’m sorry to hear that this happened to you. At IFATC we take separation minimums very seriously. I would recommend sending a message to the controller as feedback is an essential part of IFATC. If it needs to be escalated, please send either Tyler_Shelton, JoshFly8, or myself a message, and we will assist you.
