As I was flying tonight, I received a ghosting warning for idling on the runway. I was just lined up and waiting. The fancy new alert system notified me that if I didn’t takeoff or get off of the runway somehow immediately, I’d get ghosted. Naturally, I high-tailed it off of the runway, and then took off.
I was at LFPG, using Unicom. I’ve never once received this warning before. As I was looking for duplicates of my topic, I found this:
Is this still up to date? I don’t think it is, but just wanted to check, because I don’t even think I was on the runway for 60 seconds, and it threatened me with a _
ghost, not a violation. Honestly, it didn’t feel like I was on the runway for a whole minute at all. I was the only one, apart from an aircraft that was holding short a bit farther down the runway. Wasn’t impacting any traffic at all.
Obviously, the answer to this is to not idle on the runway for so long, but what is the time before one would get ghosted for this?
