What Will My Consequences Be For Making Such A Silly Mistake?
Here I am, I have finally reached 40,000 XP to be able to fly on the expert server in this wonderful IOS flight simulator. I had just started my third flight on the server ever with the Airbus A340 in Brussels. I have never flown at that airport before and I must admit that this was a very silly mistake on my part. I hadn’t actually realized my mistake until now with this screenshot backing it up but it is quite the confusing moment to take note of for the future.
So there I was in the centre of the two hold short lines for runway 20 and 25R at Brussels. I requested to take off and was approved for takeoff on runway 25R. I was quite unaware of the situation and lined up for runway 20 right after being approved for take off on 25R. I had noticed a Boeing 787 quite close on final which I thought was odd for the ATC to approve me for take off without requesting an immediate take off but I ligned up and started pushing the throttles all the way up when I had gotten the notification that I had been reported by the current tower ATC.
This is quite an upsetting newbie mistake that I quite regret and at this point I am just wondering how long it will take before I am able to fly on the expert server again? When I go on to the server at the current moment I receive the notification that I must be grade 3 to fly on the server as explained in this screenshot below. How long will this last for?
Sorry for the inconvenience to the ATC and Boeing 787 pilot on final as I must admit that this was quite a foolish mistake. If anyone knows the consequences of my actions please do let me know. Take care.
