Default ATC

Recommended Posts

Hi

Am I correct in understanding that the default ATC is the only one that can interact with ai aircraft.

Cheers

Many thanks for your reply Peter - is PE's ai interaction just at an airport - or does it handle them whilst they are en route (you can hear this with the default ATC provided the ai are on your current frequency.....). I remember listening to ATC giving instructions to a cruising ai easyJet A319 and thinking that our paths would likely converge at a point ahead - and sure enough I could see its contrail coming from our left and pass safely 2000 feet below us. Impressive stuff!!

Cheers

FS controls the major function of ai but an some add-on ATC apps can control ai regarding conflicts in certain conflicts. RC4 is one including enroute protection.

 

In addition I use ai smooth version 1.2 (its in the FSX utilities but works in FS9 as well) for separation of ai in the airport area in regards to each other and optionally from you. By spacing out ai on final you can decrease your take-off queues by allowing interleaving of take-off and arriving aircraft. ai are placed into a holding pattern. It requires fsuipc but you are not required to submit a user paid registration.

 

You can get a full and interim update of fsuipc from:

and from the library here aismooth_v120.zip.

PFE interacts at all stages: ground/Tower/departure/centre/arrival/Tower/ground. So you will hear them talking to other ai a/c during all phases of your flight.
