will I ever receive flight following on expert server or is ATC too busy with approaches and departures
You mean flight following when you departed?
Please elaborate a bit
They probably won’t do that, if you tune into departure you just have to check in and enjoy your flight.
No you can request it and if traffic permits you’re free to go. I did it last week when flying into EDDT following the real world STAR
It depends on if your departing or approaching. When you are approaching you will have to request radar vectors and you will be expected for being vectored by ATC. If you are departing, you have to check in and that’s about it
Negative, you can request a FF with approach
But you they will say expect vectors, so it is not necessary when approaching
Again negative. In a busy airspace they will get you vectored, but they can let you proceed on course if traffic permits
Oh ok, never knew that, thanks anyway
No Problem :)
@StickJockey does this answer your question?
That’s what I figured. Thank you!
