Planes line up and wait but don't take off

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I have a problem where planes line up and wait but don't take off, but it appears that this problem only happens when my plane gets close to the runway, otherwise they appear to line up and take off normally. I am using Radar Contact.Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks

Hi,I guess FSX ATC (of which you have turned down the sound when using Radar Contact) is probably telling AI to hold because there is another plane on the runway or crossing it. You probably have come too close the the runway. I am having a similar ´problem´ with the PMDG MD11. It has quite a radius around it which keeps AI at quite a distance. Since I am using FSX ATC I can hear ATC telling them to hold. In your case with RC, you are not aware of these instructions to AI.Menno

I had this problem with the Cloud 9 Orlando scenery with Runway 17R. It turned out that runway was missing hold short lines. Put them back and they work fine.

I have had this problem for years with RC and for me, it happens at every airport. The only way I have found to get around this is to not switch to the tower frequency when RC tells you to but rather wait until the plane in front of you has started their takeoff roll. Once that last plane takes off, you can hit the key to switch to the tower and ATC will direct you onto the runway. Casey

Although RC talks to AI aircraft I'm sure it doesn't control them.
