I really don’t understand the appeal here. Okay, 40-50 miles, it’s a short approach, gets you some live ATC time, but doesn’t eat up too much time. That I get.
What I don’t get, is taking off from a 3500 foot runway in your 388 from a Field that is quite literally inside the zone where you’d be cleared for the ILS as if all the other traffic doesn’t exist.
(This particular image is the funniest because of the runways and the fact it’s a 388 taking off from them straight into the cone, but it happened more than once with more traffic; closer to the cone.):
Someone that does this, please answer a couple questions:
Do you really think that other guy about to be cleared is going to be given a 360 so you can shove your way in?
Why, precisely, are you surprised when I vector you away from the traffic and put you back in line instead of scrambling five other planes around?
Does your map not work?
Why in the world are you at 8000 feet already when you’re 12 miles from the threshold?
