ATC “Taxi Full Length” Command
Disclaimer: There was a previous topic closed in 2017. However, that topic was very broad and confusing as to what was requested. This topic is for one specific request only.
As a frequent controller, I have seen many occasions when pilots will taxi to the middle of the runway. This has led to many inconveniences for takeoff lines as well as blockage of taxiways.
What Exactly Am I Requesting?
My request is quite simple, but I think it will prove effective for both IFATC as well as trainees wishing to improve their skills as ATCs on the training server. I am requesting an additional command, known as taxi full length. This command is frequently used in the real world, and it would add an extra element of realism as well as removing possible conflicts on taxiways.
How Would It Be Implemented?
This would be an addition to the taxi clearance, and ATC can add it to the taxi clearance.
Example: Infinite Flight 3, taxi full length runway 27, contact tower when ready.
Or, it could be used for progressive taxi instructions.
Example: Delta 712, taxi full length runway 27.
When receiving this command, pilots would have to taxi to the endmost taxiway entrance to the runway. This would prove effective for larger aircraft that need more runway, or to prevent blockage of taxiways used to exit the runway after landing.
Please vote if you think this would make Infinite Flight better. Also, please leave feedback below if you’d like.
