I noticed that when I take off from an airport, the air traffic controller gives me radar vectors that deviates me off my flight plane but when they tell me to resume navigation I can’t get back onto my flight plan
Yeah they do that to avoid traffic…
They do that to move you away from conflicting traffic.
If you cant get back on course, activate the leg that is closest to you:)
Wait you can do that?!
That explains a lot then… lol
How do you activate the leg?
Departure & Approach controllers give you vectors to avoid other aircraft that may be departing on the parallel runway &/or arriving aircraft. Once they tell you to resume on your own navigation, you should be able to get back on your course. You may need to go to the map view & activate your nearest waypoint on your FLP depending on where you’re current position is & how far out you are.
You select the nearest waypoint then there’s a button called Act. leg. It changes the next leg to the one you selected
Click on the waypoint in your FPL you want to go to, then click ACT LEG
I can’t seem to find that button.
Go in map and open your FPL. The button should be on the bottom
Oh I see it! Thanks!
Thanks so much! This was the answer I needed!
The only way to solve any air traffic jam any time at any airport is to follow procedural charts for departure, arrival and approaches. ATC instructions for Holding patterns should be a must with heavily congested air traffic. The problem is till this very moment there is no ATC Delivery Service or even instructions can be used to report your departure or arrival, so ATC controllers are always urged to improvise.
Theres, wpt REDTO is selected.
The button circled in blue is the activate leg button
A little bug bear of mine, and I do know why they can’t always, but there is NO need to improvise as there are already perfectly good plans available!
Just have to find away to communicate the STAR and SID between ATC and Pilots…
