Sorry if this isn’t the right place, but I had a thought while controlling Seattle Center earlier today.
Would it be beneficial to add different options that instruct:
“Descend (now) to ALT” or
“Cleared to descend to ALT”?
I wanted to clear some pilots to descend from high FL to transition alt (edit: or IAF alt) but some interpreted this as an immediate order, and others interpreted it as a standing clearance. Maybe I’m missing something. What do you all think?
