Sorry for anyone on approach at PIA a few mins ago. I had to close unexpectedly to fight a fire in my neighbors yard!
It is not an acceptable excuse until the fire touches your skin.
That’s why they have the fire department. You earned 1 demerit.
Weirdest reason to quit controlling I’ve ever heard…
Not really. I am a Voluntary Firefighter and I hat to Cancell controlling abrupt because I get an Emergency in.
As long as no one was hurt (in the virtual skies or in your neighbors yard), it’s good.
This is the only time in 95000 operations that I had to close abruptly.
Nimrod neighbors left with a burn pile smoldering… when the wind picked up it ignited, and I wasn’t about to wait and see if it was gonna spread to my yard!
Grabbed a hose and soaked it down for 15mins
Ahah Gary,don’t care about that people!(I’m not speaking about your neighbors!)
There, fixed it for you. XD
Demerit for preventing casulties in reallife? Riddicolous.
The traffic at KPIA was low and there was only me, 2 other planes and a ghosted Virgin A346 Pilot in hurry.
P.S: send me the message “Avoid sending duplicate messages” for requesting another runway for approach and land is not nice and that after 7 minutes from the last message.

Diverted to KPIA due to severe weather conditions in O’Hare)
what is a demerit
He was joking, not being serious - and if you have a problem with an ATC controller, don’t hesitate to contact them via PM.
I think Joe was joking anyway… 😂
Nice job on twenty likes and counting, “you’re really liked here on the community!”
Thank you for fighting that fire.
after 7 minutes from the last message.
What do you mean by this?
U see if most other people said that stuff would have went down 😂. Good job @GHamsz for saving lives.
Yes that’s right😂 hope your neighbours are alright though mate
I diverted my A380 to KPIA from KORD, first i requested an approach on KPIA, later i took a look on the diagram to find a parking, important for my A380 due to the wingspan. So I decided to park in front of the General Aviation Hangar, to save time i wanted to take the shortest way to taxi to the hangar, and the taxiway to leave RW31 was to small for the wheels of the A380,
So 7 minutes later i decided to request the unused RW22, and GHamsz responded to me with the message “avoid sending duplicate messages”, see in the picture
