Hey all the community! I have been searching and no one have post this ATC new options. This is for making the simulator more realistic in terms of ATC. This are the new ATC options there should be added:
-Engine Start Request (Ground): You have to request for engine starting as in real life.
-Request holding position making right/left 360’s (Approach/Departure): If you are approaching an airport and you notice you are too high, you can request making a right/left 360 for descending without a steep approach.
-Fuel Emergency (All except Ground): Just put out the 3 flight hours minimum for declaring fuel emergency, and putting the minimum flight time at 1 hour
-Taxiing to Parking Announcement (Unicom): You can announce you are taxiing to the gate while using unicom.
-Advise ATC of Traffic (All): You can advise ATC if an airplane is too near to you, so he/she can take decisions of Going Around or 360 for spacing or holding position in ground.
-Requesting Speed (Approach/Departure): You can request ATC to reduce speed for final approach or changing speed for avoiding traffic if ATC don’t notice it. And only reduce/increase speed if ATC orders it to you, so you can request the best final approach speed in relation to your weight.
-Divert to another airport due to bad weather (Approach/Departure): This is just in situation you tune to ATIS, and there are hard winds, you can take a decision: Try to land or Divert to another airport.
-Request for Vertical Speed (Approach/Departure): As you can request an Altitude, it should be possible to request also a Vertical Speed for your descend/ascend, and also ATC gives you Vertical Speed instructions.
I hope you like them!! They should be added to make IF more realistic and easier in some cases.
Edit 1: Removed the “Engine Failure” button. Added “Divert due to bad weather” button.
Edit 2: Added “Vertical Speed Request” button.
