ATC Schedule somewhere a little different maybe?

We always kinda get the same area for ATC controlling and I was flying out of VECC (Kolkata) when I was wondering why cities like that never get any sort of attention. So maybe devs and ATC staff, maybe you guys can create a schedule to include some cities that are almost never mentioned.

List down some underrated airports you’d like to ATC coverage at. I personally would really like VECC to be featured one day, especially with the new Global HD.

Tyler makes the ATC schedule and it’s up to him to decide.

I know… Hopefully he’ll see this and add some of the airports mentioned here.

You will have to wait and see.

I fly in and out of VECC quite often myself. Kinda sad to see no one else ever really flies in or out of that airport too.

The whole point of ATC scheduling is to include lesser-known airports. That’s why there isn’t ATC always at EGLL or KLAX. Check the schedule as said above and you can always make suggestions of where you’d like it to be. I’ve seen situations where staff choose a location based on community feedback ;)

Infinite flight wants pilots to explore other parts of the world. To get a taste of everything.

With the introduction of HD Scenery recently, I’m sure we’ll see a lot more variety of regions that are opened by IFATC, and areas such as South America, South-east Asia etc… are likely to be featured more often now due to the recent inclusion of full HD scenery for the entire planet.

Plenty of options, that provide unique routes, stunning views and interesting and challenging airports for IFATC.

For every pilot that wants to fly to a niche sport, there’s 86 that only want to fly where every other pilot is going.

There are 17000-plus commercial airports in the world. That’s not counting military facilities.

Where do people fly on TS? LAX, SFO, LHR, rinse, repeat.

What happens when someone like me stays open for 5 hours at the off-the-beaten-path airport of the day? I get 2 inbounds in between watching the numbers climb for the same old Bravos on the status board.

Pilots vote with their destinations. And they’ve illustrated time and again that their vote is whatever is the most popular that day.

Have fun!

Tim is one of our best controllers, but you’ll have to ask him for his secrets if you want to know how he maintains such high quality services on multiple frequencies. :)

It would be cool if VOBL or VOMM (Bangalore or Chennai) got featured (I mean they have as secondary, but as primary it would be cool)
