So over time I’ve run into a few instances where something like the following occurs. I’d have a pilot cleared by Approach for a landing at (let’s pretend we’re at KLAX) 25R. As anyone who has run tower at KLAX for more than 5 minutes knows, 25R is the most common runway used for departures. If I were able to give an inbound pilot the option to land on 25L instead, without forcing him to commit, that would help keep traffic flowing.
I would like to see an option to say something like “NXXXXX, runway 25L preferred. Please change runway if able.” And have the pilot reply with “Wilco” or “Unable”.
There is the command “NXXXXX, runway 25L, cleared for the option.” but that’s intended for giving the option for landing or t&g.
Also, on an unrelated note, will there ever be any updates to ATC? I feel like IF’s in-depth player based ATC interaction is what sets it apart from other mobile flight sims. I also feel like the UI and other things for ATC could use some love.
