Wow! Now that's realism :)

Recommended Posts

I'm not certain what the odds are, but I fly for DeltaVA and flew a real world flight in real time, while tuned into LiveATC.net to Chicago center, and running Ultimate Traffic 2at 100% traffic with the latest update to the flight schedules, and as I was flying along I spotted Canadian 511 in front of me by its on screen flight marker data, and all of a sudden there is a callout from Chicago Center on LiveATC.net talking to Canadian 511 to climb to cruise altitude with a course adjustment. LoL! It doesn't get much more real than that! :)

Cool! Without intentionally matching times, the most coincidental event I have experienced in FSX has been taking off immediately after a flight I had ridden in real life (EVA Flight 855).

That's really cool.

How do you get the real world flight plan at the time *and* was scheduled? It'd be cool to do that.

I love when things like that happen, once I did something similar flying a real world route with real world callsign and was monitoring liveatc and just as I was on final I heard the controller clear my callsign to land.

 

Thank you for the report

I didn't even think about that Air Canada or Canadian, but the ATC controller on LiveATC.net was definitely calling the Air Canada flight "Canadian five-one-one" and it was marked onscreen as Air Canada 511. Is it a bit of a shortcut for the controllers? THe way they call certain aircraft Speedbirds, or Cactus?

 

Apologies for the posting of this in the PMDG section. It was because I was flying a PMDG 737 and I was just used to posting in the PMDG sections :)

I don't think controllers may take this kind of shortcuts, as the pilots expect to be adressed with the airline callsign (in this case it would be Air Canada), and the flight number. The reason that some fligths in fact are referred to as Speedbird or Cactus is that this really is their callsign (BA's callsign is Speedbird, coming from the former BOAC logo and callsign), and some (I don't think all) US Airways flights have Cactus as their callsign, since that was America West Airline's sign before they merged with US Airways. Hence the pilots of those airlines expect not to be called British AIrways or US Air.

Happened to me a few years ago. I went to DFW to pick up my girlfriend at terminal D. When I was entering the airport I saw a Sun Country a/c landing and by the time I went thru the toll gate and got to terminal D it was parked next to a Luthansa. When I got home after being at the airport I was in the mood for a quick trip around the circuit. I loaded DFW up and low and behold the Sun Country and Luthansa were at terminal D and in the same parking slots I had seen an hour earlier in real life. I was so amazed that I called my girlfriend in to show her. Even she who doesn't care much about simming though it was prety cool that the same airlines were parked in the same place at the same time just like in real life.

 

Was running WOAI at the time so I guess the schedules happened to be in sync with the actual schedules at that time. Similar things like that have happened to me a few times since.

I sat parked at KPHX for a little while and saw a whole bunch of USAir traffic. According to FlightAware, they didn't have any flights during that time. Still, some of the flights I checked did correspond to the RW even if the airlines were off...from Anchorage and St. Louis, for example. Pretty cool.
