Simply put, in its current iteration, how would one best inform Tower of a RNAV (RNP) approach within Infinite Flight, when there happens to be no Approach controller present?
Example: RNAV (RNP) Y RWY 31L - @KPSP
While it may be frowned upon, on PG, I usually counter the many “active-airspace” warnings by issuing a “stand by” until I’ve descended through my approach to a more relevant altitude, ie 6000-4000AGL.
My experience with PG controllers has been 50/50 regarding this. Sometimes, they just spam the “active-airspace” warning about 12-times-a-minute. Other times, they won’t mention a thing until I’m calling “Inbound on the ILS”, as if they suddenly recognize what procedure I’m following.
I only ignore certain communications when I’m certain it will result in even more confusion. Pertaining to (RNP) 31L, I’m usually instructed to “enter straight-in” when crossing the BALDI entry-point. Depending on my lateral AOA, obviously, the geography would argue against it.
I would appreciate any response, whether it be hostile, informed, a mere guess or the occasional “this topic already exists”. :)
