Hey IFC! I’ve been extremely eager to apply for IFATC for like a month now, but I received a level 2 violation about 30 days ago. I didn’t think of appealing it, because I probably deserved the violation. Is there a way to appeal this violation because it wasn’t entirely my fault? Here’s the scenario:
I was flying somewhere in south Asia, I think, and I took off, climbed to cruise, and then set autopilot and walked away (I Armed VNAV). I was planning to come back to my device right before TOD, but them something came up, my plane descended on its own (VNAV) and I received a level 2 violation for not contacting ATC from the radar controller. This was most likely my fault, but as I was not at my device to contact ATC, is there any way I could appeal this because I am very eager to apply for IFATC, and I’ve been practicing my controlling skills a lot.
Thanks for reading, and all opinions are appreciated.
