Hello everyone, as part of the ATC schedule Singapore (WSSS) was being controlled by IFATC. But unfortunately there was no ATC until after I parked at the Gate. I want to share some photos what was going on at Singapore just so you can know how important IFATC is and why we need it.
Player cut me off on approach to 20R instead making a right 360 for spacing. I had to go around
Same player here did go around as well but instead of making right traffic for 20R he made left
After my go around, I had to make a left 360 for spacing due to everyone coming in 20R instead of of 20C.
Here you see Singapore 222 cutting approach instead of extending downwind. Also another traffic was on final for 20C and he almost crashed into them. He attempted to cut me off on approach and take the lead. He later quitted and I landed safely
Overall ATC is very important. This is the expert server and any inappropriate maneuvering will result in a violation if ATC was present. Unfortunately they’re lucky this time.
@Mcdudeplayz explain yourself, kind sir.
The other day in Mexico City, there were a fair number of aircraft ahead of me (4) and 2 behind me. ATC goes offline. All the aircraft begin to converge on the runway to land in a space of under 9nm. I would’ve turn final, but I continued going because it was a mess.
I believe this is normal behavior when ATC goes offline at a busy airport
I have seen this a lot unfortunately, one time I was on final at EGLL and I’m about to land and another aircraft cuts in front of me for a short final. I had to go around which was hard because I was low on fuel.
Wow I can see it’s a mess for real. They also love using the wrong runways for takeoff and landing. Fantastic! And there is a report button and we can’t use it ! Fantastic!
Wow really ? You saw me go around too? What a mess oh dear!
I saw you go around landing everything the traffic so uncontrollable
It’s frustrating unfortunately. And we aren’t allowed to report players. But you did the right thing :)
Sometimes I’ll use the wrong runway but only if nobody is there and I’m already on final. If people are there I would go around.
At Mexico City that day (they have runway 8L and 8R i think) ATC had set up 8L for departure and 8R for arrivals. Turns out when it ATC goes offline it’s all free real estate for the tons of arrivals, even if it means departures that were building up need to wait longer
Yeah you normally don’t have access to the report button
Post this on the “Shocking behaviour on expert server”
I had already made a separate screenshots/videos topic on my flight with the main course of it featuring traffic
The expert server doesnt look expert at all when there’s no ATC
Well if the runway making are all green then it’s hard to know which runway (s) are open. I recommend being a bit more realistic this time and check Flight radar. Then send traffic advisories. It may not help since players won’t obey. But it’s quite professional
Once I was in a 737-800 I had 1200 kgs fuel remaining as filled a little less fuel hoping that nothing occurs but the atc caused me to go around as an aircraft on the runway was there. I was left with 800 kgs but the weather was bad and I have no fuel remaining. It’s a mayday mayday mayday, fuel good bye. I had to go around again and luckily at that time the atc went offline I landed on the opposite runway.
That’s really the advantage of the atc offline on expert server
I agree! But it’s up to us players to report any inappropriate behavior here on the IFC so everyone would know what happened. And even if ATC is present players sometimes pass through one another. I did message AviationFlyer and AVMEX about this. AVMEX did issue a violation to those players and appreciated me for letting him know what happened. If you see something say something :)
