Escort in expert server?

Is it illegal to escort a random airliner using a fighter jet in the expert server? I’ve been wanting to try this but scared as I could get ghosted

I wouldn’t do it unless you know the pilot

You could so long as you are following IFATC instructions and you are not interfering with anyone’s flight. Meaning if you’re contacted by IFATC and you are given vectors in order to create separation, FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS and you should be fine.

Alright thank you, if I ever escort a staff, is it an insta ghost for me? xD

For that one go find out for yourself. It’s best to escort people if you know them or are in communication with them.

In real life, for example, Air Force One is escorted by fighter jets, so, it looks cool to do it in IF

oh ok u right

Airforce one is not always escorted by fighter jets. Typically a C17 or some other jumbo jet may “advance” the location where the President is going but other than that there isn’t always an escort.

So if you ever see a C17 or something land at an airport and start offloading vehicles and men you know to Google the Presidents agenda and get your camera. The President is almost certain to be there if you see @Tyler_Shelton hop out the C17 and jump in the Tower and takeover.

I briefly flew next to @DeerCrusher during his Transatlantic TBM… I guess he didn’t see me 🤫

If you want to escort people I recommend that it would be done at least in casual. So unless you know the person or talked beforehand about escorting one another than I wouldn’t.
Especially on expert, we don’t want unrealistic pilots on expert hence the name. F-22 don’t just escort planes because it’s cool. And especially staff. If anything let them escort you if you’re lucky enough. But if it’s not on casual I wouldn’t. People on training or trying to train to be on expert and be realistic. And if you’re interfering with traffic on expert,
You. Will. Be. Ghosted.

You can do it on Expert server, but depart before they contact APPR, otherwise you probably will be ghosted.

I’m sure there’s no harm in escorting staff IF your not interfering with their flight. That being said, messing the experience for them or going through them will result in a ghost for sure.

havent had it happen yet in expert server but just had someone randomly started escorting me during my current flight to KPDX i certainly dont mind it lol

As long as you’re not being a nuisance to other aircraft, escort others to your hearts content. By nuisance I’m referring to flying through others, cutting them off, buzzing them in an erratic way, or anything that would otherwise be seen as aggressive by nature.

I 100% agree with that

I am not too sure but it’s 100% OK to escort someone as long as they are not approaching their desired IFATC Airspace to cause no hassle, most importantly do not fly through, or into the person you are escorting. If someone notices you cutting off or flying through the person, they can notify the moderators or IFATC Staff.

Say where and when and I’d let you escort me. Pm me.

I escorted someone I didn’t know on expert server and didn’t get ghosted for it
