does it exist in reality? do pilots in reality get ghosted by ATC for not following ATC instructions?!
i find it weird cause in reality the ATC doesn’t have authority over the pilot nor the pilot have authority over ATC however the pilot can have the last word in some scenarios when they feel like they can’t trust that ATC or they can’t understand or they feel they are getting wrong instructions since the pilot is the one flying the plane and to unsure the safety for his passengers sometimes the pilot takes the authority over the ATC, the ATC is also a human and can’t be perfect, but when the pilot doesn’t follow ATC instructions or an argument happens between an ATC and a pilot the ATC can’t punish the pilot and the pilot can’t punish the ATC it’s another authority that have the responsibility to investigate the case and see which side was wrong,.
but in this game ATC is given the ability to punish a pilot?! which is amazing,. how come no investigation takes place? and why ATC in this game have such a authority?! why the pilot can’t do the same thing when ATC makes mistakes?!
on the other hand i love the fact that ATC is actually given proper credit in this game cause in reality they don’t really get that much credit and pilots take most of the credit cause they are flying the plane carrying the passengers and doing the takeoffs and landings etc,… but yeah its nice to see ATC getting credit,.
but again with the kind of authority ATC have in this game violations and punishment like ‘ghosting’ should also apply to ATC, i mean if a pilot makes a mistake and receives a violation nobody will say oh humans make mistakes lets remove the violation and forgive him! no the violation stays regardless of how the mistake happened, and then there’s the ‘ghosting’ punishment however non of that applies to ATC so when ATC makes a mistake no violations take place let alone ‘ghosting’
now don’t get me wrong i am not biased against ATC cause i do try to work as ATC sometimes on the training server but knowing the fact that violations and ghosting doesn’t apply to ATC and ATC is given more authority over pilots anyone can take that for privilege and reputation, now i am grade 3 with just one violation and i can take the ATC training to become IFATC so i can play the game without the fear of getting violations or ‘ghosting’ since i am the IFATC i have the authority and i won’t get violations cause i ain’t a pilot! see?! i am not saying i am going to do that i am just saying anyone can do it,
i think there should be an official team in this community that can carry investigations, for example if a pilot doesn’t follow instructions on the expert server it’s shouldn’t be up to ATC to punish the pilot nor the other way around, instead ATC should just report the pilot just like in reality and the investigating team makes the decision, therefore there wouldn’t be a new topic every time about an ATC calling out a pilot or a pilot calling out an ATC, it’s just turns into a chaos since some pilots feel it’s unfair on the other hand the ATC think their instructions must be followed without a chance for doubts because they have the ultimate authority which is wrong since the pilot can also have the authority over the ATC it’s basically situationally, if the pilot felt like they don’t wanna continue with the approach and announces missed approach it’s up to the pilot he’s flying the plane, if the pilot wanted to land on the river again he’s the pilot he’s flying the plane so if ATC feel the pilot is doing something wrong they should make a report about that pilot so a proper investigation will take place, or the other way around,. giving one side the authority to punish the other is like mob justice.
moderators, veterans, or any experienced pilots/ATCs should form an investigation team like ‘NTSB’ don’t you guys think it’s will be awesome?!
with that being said, i now have the access to the expert server but i don’t want to go there to fly a plane cause the fear of getting ghosted by an ATC over trivial misunderstandings,.
