Hi everyone, I just did a short flight from London City EGLC. I usually like using a lightly loaded A318 and, if 27 is in use, take off from the intersection. 99% of the time, controllers are fine with that.
Tonight, a controller named IFAE-IFATC Stephen B cleared me to back taxi on 27 and asked me to contact Ground when off the runway. At this point it bugs me that there’s no option to ask for “Intersection takeoff”, so I just line up on the runway and ask for take off to the west again. He then tells me there’s traffic on final. I repeat my request, he tells me to exit left, follow instructions and look at the help page. Traffic was on right base when I lined up, no way I would’ve interfered.
My request is either have controllers allow intersection take offs and not keep saying the same thing over and over OR add more take off options.
