With the introduction of ATIS, I am proposing a simple change to the menu system to hide the “Remaining in the Pattern” option from pilots where particular conditions are met.
What am I asking for?
I am asking to do not display the “Remaining in the Pattern” option if any of the conditions are met:
- The controller has selected “No Pattern Work” in the ATIS remarks.
- The visibility in the airport METAR is below 3SM.
What does this add to the sim?
- Assists controllers who constantly have to give the “no pattern work” reply because people did not read the ATIS.

Not asking for changes to ATC menus, just the pilot menu
