So I just departed KCLT half hour ago and it went smoothly. However, on the ground there was some confrontation. I began my taxi, and the controller instructed “Runway 5.” Yes, that was the command. So I park at the runway 5 holding line, and then sent “Request to cross runway 5.” I get a warning and then a repeat command “Runway 5” from the IFATC.
is this a new issue? The ATC command should be “Cross runway 5.”
