VoxATC in mountain terrain not working correct

Recommended Posts

Today I make 2 short flights with my new ordered copy of VoxATC X and it seems to me that the ATC is not working correct in mountain terrain.I make a first short IFR flight plan trip from Klagenfurt (Austria) to Rijeka (Croatia) and ATC let me decent to 3200 ft so I crashed into the mountains along the mainland coastline when on downwind for the non ILS approach.The second was IFR from Munich (Germany) to Salzburg (Austria) and also ATC let me decent to 3400 ft while the terrain is so much higher so I crashed again in the mountains of Salzburg.I

Hi Frank,VoxATC doesn't have any terrain awareness so this can happen in mountainous terrain. I would recommend looking for a STAR for that approach and entering that into VoxATC via the SID/STAR wizard. If there are no standard arrival procedures available you can look at a chart, select waypoints and safe altitudes and program one for your own use so you can make this approach safely.

As Zane recommends use the SID Star wizard or utility built into VoxATC. Do a search on SID STAR on this forum for further insight. Heck, real world ATC has been known to allow aircraft to impact terrain. As PIC it is in your best interest to prevent this. :-) Before loading any flight with an attached STAR be sure to load another saved flight then load the SID STAR flight to insure VoxATC will issue the clearance to descend via the STAR, refer to FAQ on the VoxATC website. Also set up the STAR start fix well before you would normally be handed over to your landing airport's Approach controller otherwise the STAR might not be implemented. Good luck.
