Today, I am making a feature request which I believe will clear up some confusion if it was added.
What is it?
The whole idea of the request is for pilots to announce that they are clear of a certain runway.
Right now, we have [CALLSIGN] is clear of ALL runways. However, you may have just exited the runway, and need to cross another, or you are crossing one runway, but have another to cross on your taxi route.
The idea is simple, there is an option to announce clear of an individual runway, instead of ‘Clear of all runways’.
How will this benefit?
I believe this will benefit everyone on the Unicom frequency, as everyone can be aware of the pilot’s exact actions. Rather than hearing ‘clear of all runways’, they will know exactly which runway they have crossed/ exited.
How can it be implemented?
This can be added into the ATC menu in the same way as Taxiing to runway X is. Pilots can press on a ‘Clear of’ button, and they are given the option of all the runways, as well as another option saying All Runways.
So the choices would be:
[CALLSIGN] is clear of runway 27
[CALLSIGN] is clear of runway 09
[CALLSIGN] is clear of all runways
