I have a question regarding the „Request decent via“ command. From what I read this is only working for Arrivals, but not for Approaches, is this correct?
And if this is correct I would like to bring an issue to the IFATC and Developer attention, as in some countries (e.g. in Germany), there are many airports where Arrivals aren’t really used but rather long approaches (so-called RNAV transitions). This means that you would normally not fly an STAR or Arrival, but rather an RNAV approach all the way through, which would probably need to be supported by IF as well.
Example from Stuttgart:
Only very few arrivals:
But many approaches which are also starting from far more away of the airport and can (and are) used all the way through:
I would love to hear you’re insights whether this is a valid concern or not.
