  1. Please do not use colons in the flightplan remarks field, because everything AFTER the colon will get cutoff. A good way to leave a remark in your flightplan is by adding RTF/MIDEX or CS/MIDEX. RTF stands for "RadioTelephony", CS stands for "CallSign".
  2. Could VATSIM's IT-team explore the possibility to cooperate with Marcus and take the URL on board? Maybe make the URL available at VATSIM's own stats website?
  3. How much can you afford? 100 EUR?
  4. Have you followed the installation and setup instructions? https://docs.swift-project.org/doku.php?id=installation_swift
  5. Try again at an airport with local ATC. When you sit in New York and tune in the frequency of a controller in Boston, you won't be able to communicate, like in the real world.
  6. Same here in Europe. In the real world we are way more informal than some here on the network. By some miracle, we don't keep crashing all the time, despite the "easy going approach". Of course, and this is the difference to VATSIM, in the real world you will find 2 professionally trained pilots working with 1 or 2 professionally trained ATCOs at a time. Top down cover? Happens a lot, but "only" on a TMA-dimension = 1 controller manages DEL/GND/TWR/APP at the same time during a traffic lull. Happens regularly at normally busy airports like LFMN (Nice) etc..
  7. When I was a SUP, I always used Euroscope for this task. The "not to mentioned" sector file and a dummy .ESE file did it. To check on a pilot I either added another VIS-center near the pilot or I used the .findac command. If you need more info, shoot me a PM.
  8. True, I forgot to mention this: when you are not ready for approach, then let ATC know. If your landing runway gets changed on short notice, you always have the option to state "we will report ready for approach", after reading back the new runway.
  9. What SIM? What pilot client? What airport were you parked at and what ATC exactly was online? When parked on the ground and trying to receive/transmit local ATC (TWR GND DEL) you should be really close by these stations, ideally at the airport that they are serving.
  10. "What arrival and runway can we expect?" would be the most appropriate.
  11. Well, it isn't the norm, but as LGAV has only 2 runways, the information is still sufficient to tell you that you should plan the other runway. I assume that you knew that already 🙂
  12. Hi Samer, the "recipe" that I posted should work in most places. Some airports are using one runway for landings and another one for departures exclusively. The ATIS will mention this. Based on this you can insert the approach and arrival way before your top of descent and also perform an approach briefing. In case that there are two or three other possible landing runways, have a quick look at those approach charts and keep them readily available as well, just in case you get told to land on one of those. That's how we do it in the real world. Are you using any program or website to disp
  13. oh, you are one of those aircraft huggers! 😄
  14. In Frankfurt, if the ATIS says that they are using 25L and 25R for landings, consider 25L when you are arriving from somewhere in the South and 25R if you arrive from somewhere Northerly, concerning the STAR entry-points. For example, arriving via SPESA, you will land on 25L most likely. This way you can already set up your FMS and your NAV radios. If you need to information earlier, just ask ATC, if there is enough time and space on the frequency. ATC may simply forget about it, when they are really busy. Happens in the real world, too.
