So I recently stumbled on a bunch of posts about Air Crash Investigations in IF, which gave me an interesting idea: adding a pan-pan and/or mayday button. It would be at the bottom of the list of the ATC communications box thing (don’t know what else to call it) for easy access.
Now I know there aren’t many incidents that can occur in IF, but there are still a couple of times it could be used; for example, it could be used if an aircraft is dangerously close to a CFIT. It would then allow the pilot to take evasive action without having to worry about getting ghosted.
Pilots wanting to simulate an accident/incident can also use this.
Now my thinking is, that it shouldn’t be too hard to implement something like that.
