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 noticed the only way to make it professional was having the approach plates for each airport and runway with me.
For the system is very easy to calculate vectors, having all the information available.
My suggestion for a SUPER REAL FLYING EXPERIENCE is:
Having Approach and Center ATC Robots, that will guide pilots with real aviation procedures, vectoring the pilots to the appropriate heights and IF (when approach).
I think it have lots of other benefits:
- Pilots flying and learning real procedures
- Avoiding ground obstacles when having low visibility.
- ATC Tower can work more realistic procedures because airplanes are making a real approach procedure.
I want to congratulate developers for this awesome flight simulator.
