In an effort to help pilots better understand ATC communications, as well as support IFATC, I would like to clear up one situation that is often misunderstood, and that is when to request for a transition through an airspace.
On Infinite Flight, ATC airspace has been established to be from SURFACE TO 5000 FT above the airport and a 5 mile radius. What does that mean? If you are flying outside of the 5 mile radius or above 5000 FT of an airport with Live ATC,
Do not request a transition. This only causes unnecessary clutter on the frequency for the controller when they can spend that time focused on inbound and pattern traffic.
All too often controllers receive transition requests for aircraft that are above 10000 FT and this is completely unnecessary.
Just think of it in a simple way of 5 & 5 (5 mile radius and 5000 ft ceiling).
If you have any questions, feel free to ask on this thread or you can PM me.
Happy and Safe Landings!!
