Clearance Delivery would allow the pilot to expect what their altitude after takeoff would be, the weather, what heading to fly after takeoff ect.
We already have topics for these.
Whenever I am center at an airport, people always contact me right after they take off or when they are on approach. I think there should be a command that’s says “This frequency only handles aircraft over 18,000 feet.”.
I have noticed that most of the time theres no approach and/or center ATC availables. Sometimes theres one, but you’re not sure how much expierenced he is, and if he is using real procedures to help you navigate.
I tried myself once to practice as an approach ATC in SOCAL and found it was a really difficult job, so many planes requesting vectors, some planes where going to airports out of the frequency bonds, etc, it was really difficult to find the appropriate calling in the list, and i notic…
Ah did not realize, someone flag it then pls
I don’t really think this is the best title for that, because before I clicked on it my first thought was “Well, there’s literally nothing we can do about that.”
