Hey guys! So for my feature request today it brings us to Tower Vectors. Now this would give tower the ability to give vectors to departing aircraft.
Now you may be wondering… Why do we need this?
Well with the addition of SIDS (Standard Instrument Departure) we have airports, such as KORD that have no SIDS. In real life these airports usually have tower give the departing aircraft vectors.
Here is an example:
Pilot: Skywest 225 ready for takeoff, 28R
ATC: Skywest 225, cleared for takeoff 28R fly heading 220 after departure
As you can see the Delta turned a hard right because it destination is LGA while the Alaska turned a soft right because it’s destination is SEA
Now sometimes it may be they maintain runway heading and then they get a vector. Most of the time after the vector, said aircraft is handed off to departure and vectored onto their FPL!
This would also be useful on go arounds! For those who don’t use go around procedures, tower would give to you a vector!
Pilot: Skywest 342 going around
ATC: Skywest 342 go around, fly heading 220 and contact approach
I honestly think this would make the game more realistic and if you agree please consider dropping a vote!
