Excuse the title, I must first say I have recently found, subscribed, and enjoyed Infinite Flight. It’s almost as full featured as the best desktop simulator with better aircraft graphics; the fact that it can be played on an iPad… tops it all off. That being said I’m working my way through the ranks, currently I’m on grade 2 and have been presently surprised by the lack of competence or at least attempt to be competent of many of the controllers that I’ve encountered. I would have expected there to be some level of ATC ability in grade 1 to accommodate those that wish to simply, get their feet wet… perhaps I just have unrealistic expectations. All this to say, I love the simulator and will continue working my way through the ranks on live.
The only other comment I have is that it would be nice to have an option to report controllers much like they can report pilots.
You do have unrealistic expectations. If it’s training server, don’t expect much. They are “learning” well most of them are.
Keep flying and you will reach grade 3 in no time. Then you can join IFATC. Also only IFATC can ghost aircraft while controlling, and were not allowed to control on training server. So don’t worry about a TS1 controller ghosting you.
You may want to try looking through the ATC Tracking Threads on the forum to find one that is open, and then go to wherever that controller is. They are likely to be a bit more competent, and of course you can provide them constructive feedback on their thread or via PM.
Like it was previously states above, don’t have very high expectations for ATC on the training server since most of the people there don’t know what they’re doing, keeping in mind there are still some who know what they’re doing, like myself :)
The problem I’ve encountered on TS is when I’m flying, ATC tends to lose awareness or not be able to do things in an efficient or accurate manner. When I’m controlling, I try to be realistic but when people decide to do their own thing or be stubborn about something I sort of give up. I generally will prioritize the planes that listen, although it isn’t realistic obviously and it doesn’t change anything either since the planes that aren’t listening don’t care what I do lol
As topic said. Its Training server. cannot expect too much. people are new and still learning out there. move up ranks and fly in expert server. you’ll find highly qualified, and competent controller out there. :)
