For anyone who is an aviator or an aviation enthusiast, controlled airspace means that the vicinity has a frequency that covers that vicinity border. In other words we know that as the vicinity center I.e. London center or Paris center. Of course also being in an airport’s zone which is also marked Or has borders.
Any pilot on an expert server flying in a not restricted airspace NOTAM or there isn’t a center controlling the vicinity or is outside the airport zone does not have any type of restriction on speed or altitude UNLESS otherwise instructed by the ATC controller.
It is unfair and very unprofessional to Mark player who fly in an in restricted airspace or are away or far from the airport airspace to be given violations (as long as they are playing an a professional manner) flying a fighter on level 500 or at high speeds in high altitudes and being outside that airspace YET being violated because they requested vectors to an airport is non sense to be honest.
On the other hand, a pilot who has emergency and has 2% percent fuel and asked by ATC to maintain lowest acceptable speed because the (un organized) ATC controller decided to line up an aircraft on the runway is BS. Asking the pilot turn around and again ask the pilot to maintain lowest practical speed with head winds of 16 knots and yet again lines up an aircraft on the runway is also called un professional.
What has turned to be annoying on this community is that (most) not all ATC controllers are having some control issues and are finding it pleasurable to them to give violations right and left. What is worse, is that people in the appeals community do believe that they are the chosen sacred ones and what they say is undeniable or even has no room for review. They pound you with gibberish vague open ended discussions and they decide on your behalf that they see what is right and wrong.
Even when you’re just following the exact directions by the ATC controller and they mess around with you and hit you with violations and you’re trying to appeal it that it’s non sense, they still try to find anything against you instead of being proficient and fair.
Flying a fighter jet at 40,000 feet with Mach 2 speed and starting a decent and reducing the speed is according to this community a violation. Why? The airspace isn’t controlled and you are following the procedures exactly and reducing your speed, but no to them because they can give violations and because there isn’t checks and balances here.
Where on earth does it say that being 40 or 50 nautical miles on an uncontrolled airspace and away from airport vicinity and flying in a straight line is excessive speed flying a fighter? Especially that the ATC instructs you to do a 180 and sends you away from the airport? I’m frustrated with this treatment and way of ignorance from several controllers, some are kids and they mess around without the slightest reality environment or experience.
Funny how when they want to use whatever argument they consider we are flying in a real like environment, but when you (the player) base your argument on that they totally ignore and disregards and use their power to either close an appeal or a discussion. This is a paid app, we all pay money here and we all follow the rules, be professional, honest and fair with players.
A general rule? Have you ever seen an ATC controller who’s 18 YO? Or have you seen an ATC controller giving you instructions and you follow them and after a minute they hit with a violation without doing anything but following their instructions?
Pure unfair game and if this keeps on going on, there won’t be much players left to play.
Not all ATC and not all Appeals but a majority is unfortunately treats you this way.
