"Runway in sight" request for foggy days

visual approaches don’t work like this. yes when a visual approach is given the controller will ask to report sight of the field before clearing the pilots on to the visual approach, but this happens when the aircraft is maybe 2-3000ft off the ground at least and several miles out, it has nothing to do with minimums.

that’s what the pilots are for! the controller isn’t flying the plane

Well then, I do not want a plane to make 10 go arounds, I would rather have the controller realize that the airfield is too cloudy

Well ****. This isnt really realistic. Forget, peopel can add it if thry want to for whatever rrason.

You are coming full circle now. Pilots are able to decide whether it is safe to land or whether to fly a MA. If the weather changes it is still their decision, and in the real world the only reason controllers ask for runway in sight is to inform other pilots when to expect runway in sight. In IF, this is not necessary because weather info is 2 clicks away.

Jeez, it’s like some of you are standing at the end of the Grand Canyon. No need to repeat someone, he can read the first post. Maybe he misunderstood this, but lets not get repetitive. He has the right idea, and if its tweaked and put in the game properly, it would make a great addition to IF. Please stop putting people down, and listen to their ideas, suggest tweaks and produce new ideas as to how this would work to its fullest potential. This isn’t a competition.


Please have a look over this as you’ve done it twice already
