Away request/announcement to ATC
Hi, this is a feature request for ATC and when you are contacting center or approach, and you have to lets say unload the dishwasher or go to the bathroom, even make you mom a coffee, you can request/announce to ATC center or approach that you are needing to step away for a couple minutes, ATC will reply with roger and you can go about your chores or something you need to do real quickly without getting reported.
well, this feature can help many things,
most of us have a nice little setup for IF, with our chair, our charger, and possible our mini fridge (lol right) Weather it is in our basement or room, we all pretty much have one. When you need to step away and don’t want to get reported, i would bring my device with me, now the problem with that is,
- your device would be removed from its charger, making the battery drop
- its hard to multitask like doing the dishes and trying to listen to center ATC at the same time. While you thought bring your device with you would allow you to avoid a violation, now you will still get one because you probably missed an instruction because you were occupied with other things.
- Normally i keep the brightness down on m IPad allowing the battery to maintain at what ever it is. That being said, i sit in a dark room to keep the brightness low and i am able to still see the screen. When you leave that dark room and go into the light, your device is 1 hard to see, 2 turning up in brightness and 3 draining your battery.
If this #3 doesn’t apply to you then well sorry
All in all, this is a feature to request an away point where ATC knows that you are away while climbing or descending and you don’t 1, get a violation/report, 2, your mom wont get mad and take away IF for an entire month, and 3 your device will maintain its performance
Thanks for reading, and i will see you in the skies. If you need more clarification let me know
