IFR Flight Plan Cancelled

Recommended Posts

Hello,I was using the Wilco 767 for a flight for KBOS-EGLL in FS2002. Fully loaded and heavy load of fuel. On climb, I was only able to get about 1500-1700fpm above 25000 and ATC kept yelling about expediting climb to my cruisng altitude of FL370. After awhile, they cancelled my plan!! Is there any way to stop them from doing that? Thanks,Marchttp://vatsim.pilotmedia.fi/statusindicato...tor=OD1&a=a.jpg

Marc,In short, no. The default ATC is pretty hopeless. In any case you would need to step-climb that flight. There's no way you could climb straight up to FL370 with that amount of fuel on board. The problem with the default ATC is that you can't request a lower or higher altitude. With Radar Contact you can, plus a whole lot more.I suggest that if you're serious about your flights (and using the 767PIC suggests you are) you consider Radar Contact v3. Visit here for more info or drop in on the Radar Contact Forum further down in the Forums list here at AvSim.http://www.jdtllc.com/Cheers,

Marc,My solution is not to use the ATC until you're at your cruising level. Sure, it's not ideal, but if you don't acknowledge handoff after take-off, and ignore ATC until you've got to FL370, then ATC won't throw it's toys outta the cot!My answer is to cruise at FL200 until some fuel is burned off, slowing making your way to FL370. When there, and plane stable, then start using ATC and you're away!Hope this helps.Tim
