  1. Ok but then why does it say to use "climb via sid" with a top altitude? Also, any time a crossing restriction is mentioned, when there is not a top altitude, you use "climb via sid, except maintain." Remember, even if you don't think it makes much sense with the SID(s) in question, if all you say is "maintain (altitude)," you have DELETED any restrictions on that SID. If there is a top altitude it's "climb via sid." If there are altitude restrictions without a top altitude, it's "climb via sid, except maintain." If there are altitude restrictions AND a top altitude, it
  2. You would use that when the aircraft has already been given the detailed taxi instruction, but had been told to hold short somewhere and you're ready for them to continue. The detailed instruction is still required at some point.
  3. Where? I really don't think it does. Maybe I'm reading it differently. I agree with this. Especially if the exiting taxiways are getting blocked, tower can give full or at least partial instructions before switching the aircraft to ground to keep things moving. I always observe people stopping prior to entering the next taixway at my airport. Sometimes, commercial pilots get brave and continue on their own because they're familiar. This normally doesn't cause an issue, sometimes it does. Regardless, they're not supposed to do it, whether we deviate them for such a mi
  4. In the US, the short answer is that detailed taxi instructions must be given. "Taxi to parking, monitor ground," would be a complete departure from the established procedure. Sort of like telling aircraft to "takeoff wherever." In the US, pilots are required to exit the runway far enough that all portions of the aircraft clear the hold short bars. If doing so requires protruding into the crossing taxiway, that's fine. However, pilots are not authorized to enter a taxiway or runway otherwise, unless instruction is given by ATC. What you're suggesting would be breaking the rules as writ
  5. I think the issues were user created, people seem to get the info just fine. I really love this program.
  6. I think I jumped the gun, I'm collecting more PIREPs and folks are able to see the text information too. I'll try to get the pilot client from those who are unable to retrieve text.
  7. Since vATIS loads without populating what I know to be called the "controller information" box with the ATIS text, how do pilots retrieve the text ATIS if they are not audio capable? Is it client dependent? I've had a few PIREPs with some pilots being able to see the text information by viewing the ATIS connection in their pilot client software, and others state that they are unable to retrieve the text information. Everyone says the voice comes through great and sounds really good! EDIT: I'm probably asking this the wrong way. I can see the controller info through vatspy now, it j
  8. That would clear them for a visual approach to runway 31, sure, but if you wanted them to fly the procedure itself wouldn't it be "Cleared Expressway Visual Runway 31 Approach?" "Cleared Visual Approach" authorizes less specific maneuvers to the landing runway than the charted procedure would. This might be intentional to give sim pilots more wiggle room, I'm just curious.
  9. Well, again, if your aircraft wasn't physically near an online controller in the sim, you would not see the controller in your pilot client list anyway. For example, at 1500Z perhaps New York Approach was online. However, let's [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume you loaded your aircraft up in Bangkok, Thailand. You would not see New York Approach online, you're way too far away. The links I posted above will show you ATC and aircraft activity on the network worldwide, so they're a much better indicator of where to go to get ATC services. The pilot clients for your simulator will only show who
  10. Are you sure there are any online? Vattastic or VATSpy are what I use to see where controllers are online. If they're not online... Well, you're not going to see them. You also need to place your aircraft in the same geographical location as the controller to see them in the list. The range varies for different ATC types.
  11. It may be "Super Uncool," but according to just about every language guide out there, it's "Super Correct." You were also "super beaten" by Bradley, and I super corrected myself.
  12. I see what you're saying here, I don't deal with any of these so my experience is limited(read: nil). But even on the LOOP7 shouldn't they get "climb via SID" from clearance delivery since it contains an altitude restriction? Thanks, fixed. Bluh, you're correct but it just sounds so bad. 0% of anyone I've worked with in the field says it that way. I think I remember hearing it from some Academy instructors a while back though.
  13. It's a little bit more brief than that. You can say "climb via SID, except maintain 15,000." Also, please nobody pick up that video narrator's pronunciation of "phraseology." It sounds silly. Phrase-OL-ogy = Super Cool Phrase-EE-ology = Super Uncool
  14. Hi Folks, As many probably already know, new procedures have taken place in the real world in regards to SIDs/STARs containing mandatory altitude restrictions. You can find these changes in the new 7110.65V, specifically in 4-3-2, 4-3-3, and 4-5-7. Since the changes are brand new with this recent .65 revision, you can easily scan those sections in the PDF file for "black bars" indicating the new procedures. There is also a briefing guide at the beginning of the file detailing all the changes. Helpfully, there is also this youtube video explaining pilot and controller responsibiliti
