Runway Idling Ghosting Warning

I never got a violation.

I got a warning that I would be ghosted.

I just want to know how long it’s would take for one to get ghosted. That’s really all I’m asking here.

I never got a violation, just a warning that I would be ghosted.

Reading the post correctly is key. 😉

I’m not sure what I can actually say here, except that you have plenty of time to throttle up and takeoff without even beginning to worry about it. Realistically, there’s no reason you should ever receive a runway idle ghost without falling asleep.

This post doesn’t seem to be going anywhere because I’m getting no answers to my question.

No disrespect to anyone. I understand you’re all only trying to help. The point is just being missed. 🙃

The only thing that hasn’t been answered is why a ghost not a violation.

Because if it ever got to the point where you were actually ghosted you would have been sitting on the runway for a ludicrous amount of time, and no one else can use the runway.

What else hasn’t been answered?

@MrMrMan Here’s something I found Similar:

'Ghost' (system ghost) after following ATC instructions

This is what I’m asking. 🙃

I’ve tried reading lots of stuff and found in most topics about this that you can only get a ghosting/violation is if you were on the runway for 1 minute… I am not sure if this helps but I cannot help you otherwise!

Sorry if it doesn’t help!

I saw that too, but Schyllberg never replied with the times.

He’s a busy man, so I understand. No worries :)

And I had answered that by making it clear that you’d have to try to get ghosted or leave your device running and walk away.

In the future, I won’t use metaphor. Apologies.

I’ve seen the minute marker too, I’m just not sure if that’s relevant anymore. The post I linked above was from quite a while ago.

No worries at all, Tim! It was my fault for lining up too early. It just made me curious about how long one would have to be on the runway before they get ghosted, so I can avoid it in the future.

I didn’t get ghosted or get a violation, so luckily I’m not asking for one of those to be reversed. 😉

It’s fine (your original last message was a tad more snarky before the self censoring process 😏). I don’t know if the exact time is public knowledge, but you have plenty, I assure you.

I guess just check the replay then! Maybe it will give some information to you as to how long you were on the runway and then just ask a moderator.

Maybe it is just a glitch with the system (most likely not though) and for this 1-minute warning and it was set maybe accidentally to be a “Ghost” thing instead of just a violation.

I know, I’m sorry. 😞

Seems like I had more before 19.1… But thank you! I definitely have enough but I’m still just curious. :)

I think that’s what I’m resorting to at this point!

Okay, i was just testing and rewatched my replay.

It seems to be around 40 secs until you get the warning. Then you get ghosted 40 seconds after that. So roughly 1 minute 20 seconds.

Is this what you were asking?


Yeah, so it seems to have been tweaked since the last info I had, so maybe no naps ;)

But you still have plenty of time, as long as you’re not just chilling.


Challenge accepted!

40+40 secs sounds very reasonable to me.

So now this is not something that is just a violation, but a ghost instead? Or has it always been a ghost?

It has always been a ghost. But due to various issues with the system earlier, it’s been deactivated for some time.
