Think I'm ready to try it out but one flight planning question


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, been lurking a long time, signed up years ago during FSX but was always too chicken to actually try out live ATC other than sitting at the ramp listening occasionally.  Just wondering one thing on flight planning for an IFR flight.  Do I put my own expected SID/STAR in the flight plan or just the main enroute waypoints and expect the controller will give me an appropriate SID and STAR?  Will be running MSFS 2020 with access to Navigraph Charts if that helps answer anything.  

 

Actually, I think I have one more question now that I think about it.  I remember using Squawkbox back on FSX to tune in and listen and that it injected Vatsim traffic into the sim.  I'm using VPilot now of course on MSFS 2020, but I couldn't tell if it was doing the same thing?  I was seeing stuff, but I also had Live Traffic and "live" multiplayer (meaning weather/time is locked) turned on.  So if Vatsim users are injected into the sim, I'm not sure how to identify them?

Depends what country you are flying in. USA yes, Australia No, Europe I believe no.

I would suggest you turn off all the other traffic sources if flying in Vatsim.

You have to do that, otherwise that might interfere with VATSIM's injection, and also create confusion as to what is VATSIM traffic and not.

Set Multiplayer to "group", and AI traffic to "off". 🙂
