Alright guys, I am honestly frustrated about the amount of people who don’t know what the “Cleared for takeoff” command means… So here is what it means.
Cleared for takeoff means you are cleared to enter the runway and depart, today, not tomorrow. Many people decide that it’s time to take a nap while a controller tells them to take off. When a controller tells you to take off, do it. DO NOT sit on the runway when a controller tells you to take off. 5 seconds is okay, but 30 seconds is not okay. Go arounds are not fun, and especially when you have a full pattern or are extremely busy.
Cleared for IMMEDIATE takeoff means, get your airplane on the runway and get out. Don’t even ask for wind data, just go!
Expedite means to get off the runway, NOW, not next week, not tomorrow, now.
Please save all of the advanced controllers time so we
- Don’t issue a go around
2.Disrupt the pattern
- Ghost one of you
- Involve a crash, guys, we already deal with that enough with @StikLover2
So please, don’t dottle on the runway. Thank you :)
