I am fairly new to Infinite Flight. Today I was on the training server at KSEA and the ATC asked me for my intentions. I had a flight plan to Calgary (CYYC). I was very confused and didn’t know how to respond. Next time this happens. What should I tell ATC?
Training ATC is like this. Nothing you can do about it.
They are simply asking you what you are doing. ATC wants to know what you want to do in the active airspace — maybe land, takeoff, touch and go, etc.
P.S. Welcome to the community! 😄 👍
Had you already taken off? Were you taxiing, at the gate, or holding short?
I was told to line up on runway 16C and to wait (and I did). Then the ATC kept spamming me with “Say Intentions.”
Thank you so much!
People on training server are just learning! To get better ATC get to (or if you already are) Expert Server!
In that case, tell them “Callsign XXX requesting takeoff from 16C, departing east”.
I am Grade 2 and I am trying to get more XP so I can be a Grade 3
Welcome to the community!
You can say “inbound for landing” or “requesting takeoff” or something if they ask. But it’s TS, so they might do it if they don’t need to.
That’s just TS being TS, Expert is better.
Yeah just keep flying and you will get there trust me ATC is a lot better there as only people who are tested can do ATC.
If you want better ATC on the Training server just see the TSATC! The new schedule is not up yet but they are tested as well.
When you say you were lined up were you on the runway?
I’m confused what you are trying to say.
Did you follow his instructions; were you lined up on the runway, waiting to depart?
Guys this is no use it was on the Training server where the controller was probably just learning or trolling unfortunately there is nothing you can do other then ignore them.
Were you on top of the runway or were you still on a taxiway?
He is asking a valid question: what “say intentions” means, and why it was applied to him
This could also be @cptlogue not knowing what line up and wait means
