RC5 and TCAS

Recommended Posts

My understanding, from what I have read on the subject, is that in RL, if TCAS orders a manoeuvre such as "ascend" or "descend" the crew must obey that regardless of what ATC have instructed.Now, we all know what would happen in RC4 if we did that! We would be shouted at to watch our altitude, with no way of us explaining why were doing what we did. My question is will v5 have anything to cater for this?Iain Smith

"London Control, BAW28, TCAS event..." :( " In my opinion though, RC separates traffic pretty well, so there won't be much need for that.. can't wait! I've got my world tour and real world M11 documentation ready to go.. all that's missing is RC5. Flying online often sucks because there's no ATC where youwanna fly. I fly both ways though...

I don't think RC controls traffic at all. :( Iain Smith

v4 and v5 de-conflict enroute ai, so there aren't as many conflicts.

Any chance of getting ground control for the AI, too? It drives me nuts trying to dodge the AI at ATL, JFK, MEM. Not enough to forego RC, mind you. Just an annoyance.Cheers!!Ken
