Request startup and radiocheck

Recommended Posts

These are two commands I could do without in VoxATC flying smaller airplanes. Request startup does not make any sense since you normally dont want to using the radio until the engine is on anyway and battery loading.

 

20 years is general aviation and never have I heard or used that command with ATC, they have more important things to do.

 

Looking past theses small issues I am having a really good time with VoxATC, sure it gets stuck sometimes mid flight and ATC forgers me and I need to sometimes change approach freq sfter just a few seconds and get a second squawk code from the new controller but its a good purchase and really have something going for it if developer continues to update. In my experience IFR flights are less problematic than VFR flights.

What you say is generally true but not always true in the UK. Bristol, Exeter and Gloucester for example ask that you contact for engine start approval. You would generally ask for engine start and radio check in these circumstances.
