FS20002 ATC and FMC's

Recommended Posts

Hi All, Is there a way to get fs2002 ATC to allow you to follow completley, your flight plan in your FMC, For example Last night i flew from Denver to Las Vegas, my PSS A321, All went well untill ATC vectored me in to the mountins to left of and before RW25L at KLAS. I planed this flight perfectly with FSNAV so that i would follow the STAR for 25L which i knew was the active runway, but fs2002 ATC Had its own Ideas. If i dont follow ATC they cancel my plan and then im not guranteed a landing slot at my destination, and usually get a go around, or cant find out the active runway. I always File the plan with ATC as IFR VOR-VOR as this seems the best way to get ATC to follow an FSNAV Plan. Any Ideas guys, on how to get ATC to accept my flight without giving me their vectors to the active, or is it just a thing that i cant change.Thanks Jason..

It is a thing that you can't change with default FS2K ATC.A suggestion, albeit moving away from "as real as it gets" is to cancel your IFR clearance as soon as ATC vectors you away from your chosen STAR. When ATC tells you "IFR clearance cancelled" simulate that they're telling you "you're cleared for STAR x." At that time continue flying your STAR, and contact the airport tower when you're ready to land. Keep in mind that the runway you expect to use may not be the one used by ATC at that time. Dave Vega

You can also get RADAR CONTACT. This "payware" allows you Altitude changes, course changes, SIDs and STARs.
