When you can’t find an airport with ATC on ES to fly into anymore.
When you find an airport to fly into with ATC on ES, you make your flight plan, take off, and then you got to break out the KARAOKE machine and sing… 😢 🎤
🎵 “THEY ARE ‘GON … THEY ARE GONE!!? GUESS I’LL JUST TALK TO UUUUU-NIIIIIII-COMMM” 🎵
When people copy your flight plans.
When 2 pilots behind you copy your flight plans and all of a sudden it’s a race…. 🏁 ugh
…at least this pilot changed a few things during climb:
- When random people fly around the EXPERT SERVER with the callsign AIR FORCE 456 HEAVY sitting in a BOEING 717-200 when your trying to work on your KDCA approaches. Then, after you announce your doing the ILS APPR on RWY #1, they just announce they are going to crash into you by hooking a wicked right turn (bank angle! bank angle!) and then announcing “On Final RWY #33” after purposly deviating from whatever “course” they were flying. 🙄🤔😔
The growing pains of the Expert Server now that there is a major lack of “police” (see 1-5).
When I can’t find any airports to control on the training server. I’ve had some awesome sessions on there, where every pilot listened to me, and kept the pattern flowing. I have like 1,300 operations - should I just apply for IFATC? 🧐
When people don’t have an IFC account linked.
I get very unlucky with novice pilots doing stupid things all around me on the Expert Server. You know when you first join the server, and the message pops up about being polite, following the rules, etc. That really makes me laugh. I can’t count how many times I’ve had to Go Around, speed up/slow down unrealistically to create space, etc. recently.
Before with the ATC hubs, these people wouldn’t be allowed to get away with what they do in those areas, but now I think it’s getting worse… I hope not.. …rant over, sorry folks - it’s just getting to me.
I’m trying to take my Grade 5 w/ only 7 violations seriously, and it’s getting much, much harder. 😬
