ATC Alert!!


Recommended Posts

Can Vpilot make a noise of flash a message when a new ATC station comes online? 

I hate it when I'm flying along and don't realise I'm now in someones airspace until I get a "contact Me" I like to be ready! I tried using a seperate program like Vatspy etc but I'm trying to ease the load on my PC.

Also, what range does Vpilot use to populate the list? 

 

Ta!

I thought about adding something like that, but the problem is that most of the time, the newly-arrived controller will be irrelevant to your flight, making the alert just a nuisance. Users will learn to ignore it or shut it off.

That's controlled by the server, and the server uses different ranges for different controller facility types. It also depends on the aircraft's altitude. The higher the aircraft is, the more facilities it can "see".
