I have came across something unfortunate today whilst landing at EGLL. ATC was not online so it was complete chaos at EGLL.Just because ATC is not online you just go ahead and come out of the approach line or cut in line with the sequence.Just because ATC closed you are thinking “well…I can’t get ghosted so I can cut in line” well thats a no.ATC should not have to do so much go arounds or left/right 360s when they open up.All we have to do is maintain correct spacing and stay in the sequence. It has been said before, leave some of your training server habits in the training server.Expert is meant for professionalized pilots, so we have to keep it professional.Here are some pics for you to get a better understanding on what I am taking about.
Altho, in the last image, it says that tower is active
That’s was literally 2 seconds after tower came online
I agree. Expert server is called expert server for a reason and it’s a privilege to have access to it. It isn’t a free for all server. That’s where casual server comes in. Pilots who may do this, just know that it disrupts everyone around trying to have a good professional flight on expert server. If you get close to another aircraft like shown in the picture go around. There’s a solution to everything. Don’t ruin the expericne for others just so you can get in the ground before everyone else. And plus, when IFATC makes the airport active when this is occurring it puts immediate stress on their hands to have to give them command to go around etc.
Who was the controller at the time of that? It may have been me as I was controlling the last 2 hours. Usually we let things settle down before handing out ghosts and such. We can’t control what happens when we aren’t online and we have to trust people can behave correctly.
Controller a super busy airport without approach is challenging lol
Why always heading to a busy airport?
Happens to me too and I just announce go arounds because I can’t stand cut in line pilots and I would later try to find them on IFC and …
Because that’s where all the fun is !
It was not you.After this occurred Cot Evan was controlling
Not to mention that Expert is for realism, but a Frontier aircraft is landing at London Heathrow
Who’s gonna flinch first call it going around moment hahaha!
Saw a Southwest 737 take off from LHR… shudders just thinking about it
I know, very unrealistic.
I’ve seen Alaska’a More to Love at Frankfurt. on Expert
Expert server has been going to trash over the last couple of weeks with people doing this that shouldn’t even be on the expert server ruining peoples experience on the server.
Some people just never learn ;)
And then they get ghosted.
At the end of the day, I just see it as two options: stay professional and use the best judgement you can with your given situation, or stoop to someone else’s level that doesn’t care about realism. It’s always frustrating seeing that, but if they already don’t care then there just isn’t much you can do besides take care of your own plane. I’ll always have more respect for someone that does multiple go arounds or puts themselves into a hold over someone that just decides to land on top of another plane
There are so many unrealistic flights on expert… hate that
