I have been controlling for a while now, and I would like to point out a few common mistakes tat are made with the ATC commands given by the controller.
This is if runway 27 is in use
- When permission is given to taxi to Runway 27, this is not permission to enter the runway and taxi down there to the holding point. This command means, taxi and hold short of the runway. Contact tower, and they will give you permission to back taxi when it is appropriate and suitable.
-If you enter the runway without permission, it may result in you being ghosted.
When the Back Taxi command has been given, please do so quickly, especially if you have been asked to exit the runway, not line up, to enable smooth operations if other aircraft are on final etc. - This will help you get on with your flight quicker, and help the other aircraft around have a good flying experience, and not cause them to have to go around, if you do not vacate quickly enough.
Another thing to point out - please do not block up all the exit routes from the runway, Hold short at the one point before being given permission to back taxi. This will enable people to exit the runway and get you off the ground quicker
If you don’t want to follow these rules, then the Advanced server is not for you - you should go to the free flight server!
