why sometimes we can find some open ATC in the expert server without ATIS but just tower/ground?
There are multiple possible scenarios.
Sometimes, not all airports have an ATIS frequency. This was evident especially in the GA FNF that happened this week.
When a controller has just opened, they get bombarded with requests. While handling those, they may not have time to configure and publish the ATIS for a minute or two. The ATIS frequency won’t appear until it’s published.
Can you provide me with a specific situation and I can try to help you understand?
There is no particular situation I remember now, yeah maybe last time on last FNF. Sometimes I noticed that and was curious :)
Anyway I was convinced that IFACT configure ATIS before open!
Thanks for your reply!
