Hi people! Hola Gente!
Flying Hawaii on the expert server, I was at PHKO, I didn’t planned a flight plan, I wasn’t sure what it would be my final destination so I would make it after take off and be at cruiser altitude, when I requested pushback the ATC ground requested to all aircrafts (not sure it was because of me o any other one) to have a FPL before taxiing and I had no answer for my pushback request.
So my question, it’s necessary or obligatory to have a FPL before to take off? What about if you want to be flying in the entire region for a couple of hours or if you want to fly doing pattern work? (I think there is no FPL required in this situation) If I’m doing wrong let me know to correct my mistake, Any comment, or advice it would be really appreciated, I’m still learning and I try to do everything as best I can.
