What was the right procedure for someone not vacating the runway. I was on casual server at KJFK and I let the person on final land and I lined up but they were just on the runway it looked like they weren’t moving so I reported them after a couple of minutes and anouced take off and did because it seemed they wouldn’t get off the runway and people were behind me was what I did the right thing if not what could I have done. Sorry if this isn’t in the right category I really don’t know which one it should be under I have tried to find out
Fly on expert if you are Grade 3 for a more realistic experience.
There wasnt much that you could do… So you did the right thing
It was casual, not much to do really other than come on expert…
I normally do but due to not being able to be with my device the whole time I was in casual
I only go in expert when I know I won’t be leaving my device
As long as you’re flying at a correct altitude and out of any airport’s airspace, you can walk away from your device until you start descending even on expert.
Really. What about ATC if there is any and you fly over the airspace?
You won’t get ghosted while cruising on Expert, as long as you are at the correct altitude and speed.
Ok that’s really good to know
There is no Center frequency anymore, so if you’re above fl180 there is no risk of getting ghosted.
That’s good to know thank you for telling me
You should never take off on a runway that is currently occupied. Allowances here because it was Casual and he seemed to have vacated the device but not the flight, taking you at your word, but on the other servers, there are no circumstances under which you should take off with the runway otherwise occupied.
[As far as reporting goes, you hit the button, but that’s the end of its effect. The runway would still be occupied and you shouldn’t take off. Again, since it was Casual, there’s a little leeway, so long as it isn’t habitual, but on the other servers, no, you do not simply take off.]
Yeah I waited for him to move he didn’t I had anouced it and there were people waiting and coming in and I know about never take off when the runway is occupied but I did as I had been waiting I would only do it on casual
If you don’t want to deal with “occupiers” as I call them who just occupy the runway then go to expert where it never happens. JFK on casual or TS1 is a nightmare. 1/4 times I tried to land there on TS1 an occupier sat on the runway while I was trying to land. Spectators should stay on the taxiway!
Yeah, that’s what I took from it. Just clarifying so you don’t find yourself barred from Expert because someone at one point said “sure” about one situation on Casual
