Hi,In the real world, how common are traffic alerts and resolution advisories and, if an RA is given, is it immediately followed or do you need to contact ATC first?Thanks,P.S.Great job PMDG on this wonderful addon!

RA need to be immediatly executed, as a crash is within either 10 or 20 seconds from now, so do'nt contact ATC untill after the TA/RA is solved.

And ignore any ATC instructions to climb or decend by ATC. A TCAS alert takes priority over atc. (That is RW)

And they are not common. In 4yrs of 121 flying I have had 2 RAs and only one that we had to deviate for. Almost every trip we will get a TA just because someone is either climbing or descending too fast but they always level 1000ft from us per ATC instruction.

True. When I had classes held by an instructor who was an active approach and tower controller in one of Europeans most congested airspaces, he (as an ATCO!) told us it doesn't even make a lot of sense for the controller to know (not immediately at least), because he can't even do anything anyways and of course isn't supposed to intervene. If you get an RA, follow the RA immediately. Then there's always time to announce "TCAS CLIMB" or "TCAS DESCENT" over the radio once you're out of danger.sig.gif

You MUST asap report a TCAS RA to ATC!! "Callsign TCAS RA" is the standard phraseology. You must also report when clear of conflict.vololiberista
