I have searched multiple times to find a “rejected takeoff ATC” feature, so this is the 1st one. Please mods do close this topic if it is a duplicate.
We all make mistakes in infinite flight. Go arounds to speed adjustments to the wrong airport sometimes. But one thing I’ve wanting to see is a ATC feature to say “rejecting takeoff”.
Just like we have a go around announce feature because we aren’t lined up or we are too high etc.
Why do we need this feature? How is it useful?
Well as we all make mistakes and sometimes forget to check fuel or something and we remember “oh I forgot to check fuel” or some common mistake we all make.
So In the Tower tab after your cleared for takeoff this should be added to the ATC comms:
“San Francisco Tower, All Nippon 98 heavy, rejecting takeoff”
Then an example of a reply could be
“All Nippon 98 heavy roger, exit left on the next taxiway and contact ground/or stay on tower according to the ATC.
If IF somehow did add it, they could add like this to somehow prevent trolls (?)
“Seattle Tacoma Tower, American 32 rejecting takeoff, (then add some reasons to why)
It could be a fuel not checked or flaps not set, trim, etc.
But yes, we would have to figure out something to prevent trolls.
To sum it up
A new ATC request feature for pilots that need to reject takeoff due to a mistake or something the screwed up:
“Dallas Ft. Worth tower, American 17 heavy rejecting takeoff”
Again, I have not found any duplicates. If you do find another original one, please close this topic.
