Okay, I’m not too good at explaining things, but I’ll try my best.
Okay, first let me point something out. You’ve probably noticed that in real life, a lot goes on when making an ATC transmission. You have to thing about different things and it’s basically challenging. In Infinite Flight it’s much easier and less complicated. We need to somehow use this same method when creating the Clearance Delivery frequency ATC options.
In order to do this, we must make the Clearance Delivery transmissions simpler and easier to understand, unlike how it is in real life. I was thinking instead of including all of these complicated things you normally say, we can just have a simple layout, kinda like a template for every Clearance Delivery transmission. You can see what I’ve come up with below:
PARTS: [CALLSIGN], [VFR OR IFR], from [DEPARTING AIRPORT ICAO] to [ARRIVING AIRPORT ICAO], [CRUISING ALTITUDE].
EXAMPLE (PILOT): Clearance, United 279 requesting VFR from KLAX to KSAN at FL180.
EXAMPLE: (CONTROLLER): United 279, cleared VFR from KLAX to KSAN. Expect FL180.
Now, another feature that could be added but makes the process a bit more challenging is allowing the pilot to create a flight plan on the in-game map and then send it to the controller. Whenever the controller would tap on that airplane or access the ATC chat menu for that aircraft, the flight plan would appear on the map. This way, the controller actually knows where that are going, instead of simply knowing their cruising altitude, departing airport, and arriving airport.
If you were to use the second method, the controllers response would change. I will use the same pilot example above as pilot transmission in this example.
EXAMPLE (CONTROLLER): United 279, cleared VFR from KLAX to KSAN as filed. Expect FL180.
If you have any questions, please ask!
