  1. Just as a continuation of this topic - I had a flight today - ENBR to EDDF. It was B-738 and in the FMC I created a 150nm circle around the destination airport (EDDF) to represent an EDDF approach maximum visibility area (as by Code of Conduct). But when I entered the circle and contacted the controller, he said that I'm not in his airspace yet and starts to work with me only in about 50nm from the field. So the working distance of the controller is about 50nm, correct? Another question is more about the order of operations particularly in the VATSIM - what is "the right way" - to contact
  2. Thanks! VatSPY is a thing! And I really love this old school interface!
  3. Hello. As far as I understand (and it was somewhere in the VATSIM documents) the controller hierarchy is from bottom to top meaning - if for example, ground is not available, but tower is, the ground clearances may be issued by tower controller, and then the same controller is working with you as tower and permits for takeoff. Same with approach and center. There is distances in the Code Of Conduct for each controller type. But if with ground, tower of even approach it is quite easy to figure out where the controller is and are you in it's controlled zone, with Center's I'm sometimes puzz
  4. I feel I need to write my opinion here too, 'cause it is the first place where I found people who soberly talking about MSFS and not just "ah, it so good-looking, gougers and mind(eye)blowing". For me personally visuals is just a candy wrapper. And MSFS for now feels like great looking but yet empty box. I bought it and I do not regret that I did. I believe that in a year or two it will eventually become a great simulation tool, but for now it's just not there yet. I didn't try it in the VATSIM 'cause I tried some instrument flying (it was some GA vessel) and I quickly found that half of the G
  5. M-m-m, I cannot reach this site for some reason but I guess it is not a site problem. Could you please provide some alter source of maybe PDF with the rules? There has to be one. Update: no need, site is available. Thanks. Another update: found this GA_IFR_Flight_Planning. Think it might be interesting not only for me.
  6. Hi. Need some explanation about the IFR flight rules in Europe. In the USA it is FAA Flight Regulations which rules applies on whole country. Do we have something similar for Europe? Or every country has it's own "regulations" especially when we talking about GA? I guess for airliners there has to be some general rules but what about GA? Second question is more specific. For example I planning a GA IFR route and my destination is controlled airport with published STAR's and approaches. How do I need to plan an arrival route? Using the published STAR's seems illogical because the GA
  7. Ah, I see. I have to connect the STAR with approach through the IAF. It's strange that in case of this particular charts this obvious thing did not came to mind! Thanx a lot!
  8. Hi! Can anybody explain me STAR chart at the pic below? The STAR is leading you direct to the field. For example I want to practice the approach to runway 33 (second pic) from PIMON. Where I have to divert from a direct line that I see at the STAR to a WW533 as it is IAF that I want to use? Thank you.
  9. I think I understood. So in the xPilot for example I enter the "SBI890" but when I make call's to ATC I use "Siberian 890". So the radio callsign consist of the "radio callsign" of the airline ("Siberian" for S7 and for example "Speedbird" for BA and the current flight number). Is that correct? And if I use GA aircraft I can use just the registration number (RA123 for example)?
  10. I saw this topic for newbies so I will ask my question here instead of creating separate thread. Also Im sure this question is been asked before and I just did not find answers. Tell me please more about the rules of callsigs. Particualy of the airliner callsigns. For example, let's say we have B737-800 of the S7 airline with the tail number of 12345 and the prefix of RA (since this is Russian airline so RA is the apropriate one I guess) and the flight number let's say 890 (from city A to city B). So when I make an initial call how I must present myself? I read the vatsim manual about ca
  11. Hi. Another newbie here. 🙂 I have two questions for now. First about unicom. Is it preferable to use voice to announce at unicom? I read in some vatsim documents (can't say the particular one but somewhere in the beginner's guides) that text is preferable in unicom. Maybe I read it incorrectly? Second one is about text-only controllers and the game pause. The situation I was in couple days ago: I flew VFR in Yak-18T which does not have any navigational instruments except ADF (without DME) and no autopilot. So it is 100% manual and day-VFR-only aircraft. The only controller in the a
