Your Infinite Flight Live Pet Peeves

  • When you’re controlling on TS, and pilots get impatient and take off without clearance.

  • When people taxi through you and take your takeoff slot.

ATC annoyances:

  • When ATC gives you a meandering approach, rather than straight in when there is minimal to no traffic in the area. (Not following approach charts)

-When ATC makes you descend several thousand feet below the approach/ILS (i.e. 2000 ft while still 30nm from airport)

I agree with this, it is really annoying…

When ATC Vectors you 30nm from the airport and ignores all ur calls until ur out his airspace then screams at you for not being in his airspace

Happened just now actually!

Someone on the expert server loops right in front of the departing runway looking like they were going to land on the wrong end of the runway at EGLL. But instead they pass over the airport less then 2,000 feet not announcing intentions over Unicom, impending my departure. Oh and the best part? This person was grade 4. 😳

We do also need to keep in mind that 1 there was no controller, so the pilot had full say where he/she wanted to fly, and how.

  1. This was done by a grade 4 pilot 🤦‍♂️

When your grade 5 and someone escorts you and flys through your plane on expert 😬

This is very irritating as being a controller. The red circled Aircraft just doesn’t get in mind to make that left turn after I told the aircraft ahead to stop😤. Some people don’t know how to taxi!

Is that on expert?

Yeah you’re right, happened a few weeks ago at YSSY.

The biggest one for me is when people use their strobes/landing lights when taxiing. They could go on the forum and educate themselves about their usage of lights, but they would rather believe they are doing it the right way.

Wouldn’t this be worth mentioning in the feature request: “Drag and Taxi” Feature

In some cases (like this picture) I don’t think it’s necessary tho. That pilot just didn’t watch to traffic ahead. We already have the “give way to…” option. In some cases it would be a nice addition for the realism. 50/50 choice.

This is the expert server! Aircrafts exiting the runway HAVE THE RIGHT AWAY!

My pet peeve is probably when an aircraft “accidentally” enters the runway I’m on final on.
