No Departures Accpeted for [Amount] Minutes

So basically, it would work like this, the controller would be really busy (advanced only) with takeoffs and landings, so they say no departures accepted and it would go over Ground and Tower frequencies, so no one could pushback or taxi that isn’t already cleared. Then, when traffic lightens, departures can resume. The controller could also put in the message how long departures wouldn’t be allowed. Any thoughts? Got this idea while sitting on a plane at a gate because we couldn’t take off because the airport was too busy.

If this was added in PG, I will depart from the grass

Do you have any reasons why you wouldn’t like it or is poorly thought out?

Actually, this isn’t that different from a hold at the gate. Happens when airports have delays. However, most IF pilots won’t want to actually wait for an hour at the gate :)

It’s a real life atc command so I think it would be a great idea and I’m all for it @hmkane let’s say you have a huge line of inbound like a lot of times at KNUC just broadcast attention all departing aircraft there’s a gate hold in effect for 15 minutes. If the don’t like it then hey can go spawn in some where else and if someone does take off from the grass then they get ghosted

The devs try and make this as realistic as possible and that would improve the realistics of the sim in my opinion

This is a great idea

I love this idea.

A great idea. This would be nice😊

Technically like a departue delay. Especially if its “Rush hour”. Some aircraft may not be able to leave there gate.

Wonderful idea!

Would be very very helpful. I currently in cases like this, I do not allow the aircraft to taxi.
