Hello! When issued headings, radar controllers have what is called a “drag and vector” feature. Meaning, when they tap on your plane they are able to drag a magenta line to where they would like you to go.

Check out this link if you’d like to see and learn more.

Also, you can control on the training server and if you are interested in controlling on the Expert server, check out this link for official IFATC recruiting: Infinite Flight ATC Recruiting


thank you so much! atc is much more fun now.
