I was just flying a short cargo hop from London Stansted to London Heathrow.
Shortly after announcing takeoff from the unicom, I rolled off the runway and blasted into the skies. Shortly after that, I contacted EGLL approach and they gave me vectors. I obeyed, but they made made me fly close to Stansted again. At that time, while 8,000 feet above the airport area, I got multiple messages asking me to contact ground. At 7,900+ feet. Ground. Warning messages.
I would have contacted them really quick for them to not bother me again, but I couldn’t, since I was flying.
I was about to get in trouble for not tuning to a frequency I couldn’t contact!
This being on training, this is very unusual behavior, so since I didn’t want a report, I took a screenshot for y’all and left.
The thing is, I would have liked to finish my flight.
So… what do I do?
An unexperienced ATC user on TS repetitively asked me to contact ground while I was in the air, so I was unable to do it.
Please help me understand this issue and help me act better next time!
I put this in support, but should it be in #live?
As this was on TS there is nothing really to do.
Also I don’t care that it is 2 words. In my mind it is 1. 😂
So there is NOTHING I could have done?
Nope, if this was on expert, which would never happen, you can contact the controllers.
Well not really, no. Just another annoying controller that you can’t do much about. That’s why Expert Server is where you should trust the controllers.
Training server is where people learn, nothing you can do.
I just might have gotten speed vios
maybe I got a whole bunch
You gotta watch your speed!! 😂😂😂
Going on about the controller is like going on about your engines, you can complain about their power and output, but not maintain a stable control yourself :)
Maybe the ground controller got given a pair of ultra zoom binoculars.
Maybe he thought he was tower. And just didn’t see or hear where it says that you are ground 😂😂😂
@Robertine Most TS controllers cant even report you. If they’re giving out bogus commands, I just ignore them. It’s sad, but it’s what you have to do sometimes.
They are learning too. Just go with the flow and continue your flight.
