Hello, Infinite Flight Community!
The Current Issue
Currently in Infinite Flight, in ATC, the some of the numbers are not pronounced properly. These are the numbers three (3) and nine (9). In IF, they are pronounced as “three” and “nine”. The should be, as many of you will know, pronounced “tree” and “niner”. This is because you don’t want to confuse three as in the number 3 with the English word “free” meaning unpaid or released. The word “niner” is use instead of nine to avoid confusion with the Germany word “nein” meaning “no” in English.
Example: American Airlines flight AA2391, would use the callsign “American two tree niner one” not “American two three nine one”. This is how we typically say it in Europe. I know, in other regions of the world, it is more relaxed.
I hope that makes sense.
Why Is This Important?
Well, it makes it more realistic. Isn’t that what we all go for? Do you want your flights to be more realistic, even if it is only a minor thing? I sure do!
Below, I have produced a video demonstrating how it should be pronounced in case anyone is unclear, although I am sure many of you do understand.
