ATC Question

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has encountered this problem with Air Traffic Control. I have loaded a couple of flights lately, one leaving Salt Lake International, the other leaving San Diego Lindbergh. Soon after takeoff when I am supposed to transition to a certain departure frequency, I am not able to transition to it. What I have had to do was go back to the tower frequency, then go to transition to class D airspace. Once I do this, and then clear the airspace, I am able to transition to the departure frequency, and everything seems normal for the rest of the flight. If I do not do this I will not have any contact with ATC for the rest of my flight, until I ask for clearance at the airport I am going to land at. This does not happen to all of my saved flights, so far I have noticed it just on these two. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've had the same thing happen to me out of Salt Lake too. But it happened out of other airports too.Seems it happens when 2 messages from ATC come in one after the other, and before you can respond to the 1st, the 2nd arrives.I don't recall the exact messages or requests from ATC. I do know that I have to recall the Tower, get Class D clearance, then clear, then call DepartureApproach for "Flight Following."Perhaps just one more of the little nuances that simmers have endured, yet overcome.Rick

Rick,Thanks for the response. I guess it's just another one of the ATC quirks.
