I didn't know what to do ATC HELP

Ok I was on expert server The guy atc was very good IFATC in all… but I was doing remaining in the pattern so I would lift off and he would say like number 2 traffic to follow is on final… so I would keep on going along to follow and he said please follow instructions 2x and check tutorials on forum using atc instructions!! I felt so bad I’m not mad at him he was doing a great job just wanted to know what I was doing so poorly

Provide more information… what airport? Who was the controller etc


Did you enter from the wrong side maybe?

When you say keep on going did you keep flying straight from the runway?

It was Quad City and the controller had weird name like
Flo R Lg
Something like that

Best is always to just PM the IFATC

No I went around on pattern

I will get him to PM you. No need to discuss this anymore :)


His name was super hard like crazy spaced so I looked it up but it wasn’t on here

Sounds to me as if you’ve departed straight out instead of flying a downwind to the runway in order to fly the pattern, that’s probably why.


I went downwind on the pattern

Thank you Im Not mad just want to know so I won’t do it again!!!

Did you follow correct left/right traffic?

He said enter left traffic I use appr and tried to hit left traffic

Any other instructions he gave you? Extend upwind maybe?

Turn base that’s all

I’ll PM you shortly


But I turned base!!!

Ok cool Flo no problem

Appr? What do you mean? Autoland? The button that says APPR?
