Turn of MSFS ATC in favor for VATSIM ATC


Recommended Posts

When using FS2020 I want to disable the built in ATC so that I can use the COM1 Radio to talk to VATSIM ATC or UNICOM. How do I do this? The only option I can find is to delegate the built in ATC to the Co-Pilot AI. This still interferes with COM1.

Please advise.

OK, so muting the ATC voices and completely ignoring them after pushback they will not bother you. Ensure you have the AI **NOT** handling your radios and you have full control over them. I flew through the ZNY area and NY_CTR was very patient as I worked this out.

Thanks for this. but... what do you mean exactly by have AI not handle radios?

I just jumped into the sim to check and I found:

  • ASSISTANCE > PILOTING > DELEGATE ATC TO AI: OFF
  • ASSISTANCE > USER EXPERIENCE > ATC VOICES: OFF
  • ASSISTANCE > USER EXPERIENCE > ATC UI PANEL OPEN AT START: OFF

Not so sure about:

  • ASSISTANCE > USER EXPERIENCE > SHOW MESSAGE LOG IN ATC MENU: ?

I dont want to lower GENERAL > SOUND > VOICES because It's both ATC *and* Co-Pilot... The checklists experience is something really appreciate.

I have all these settings set as talked about (basically everything off) and still when I land, the sim changes my frequencies to the local airport... which obviously is a pain while on VATSIM... any other solutions?

I don't experience this, don't know what to say - there must be something else - Copilot functionality maybe?
