There is one thing that is bothering me since the the first day of Live ATC in Infinite Flight. It’s something I mentioned years ago when the community didn’t even exist yet but also something that still hasn’t been changed even though it’s a No Go in real world ATC communications.
At the moment, when you’re requesting departure in Infinte Flight it sound likes that:
„Los Angeles Tower, TestFlight 1, ready for takeoff at runway 25L, departing straight out“.
The word „Takeoff“ is only supposed to be used for the actual clearance for takeoff. This was introduced years ago after the collision on Teneriffa in order to prevent accidents that may be caused through confusion because some pilots may misunderstand an ATC instructions and take off without a clearance.
It is supposed to be phrased like that:
Los Angeles Tower, TestFlight 1, ready for departure at runway 25L, departing straight out
TestFlight 1, Runway 25L, cleared for takeoff
Cleared for takeoff, Runway 25L, TestFlight 1
Personally, I think that this change would make the communication way more realistic.
