ATC Challenge!.....Up for it!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

 

With all the current noise and banter going around about the different ATC programs that are available, it seem that 'mines longer than yours' and all that rubbish has been getting around.

 

So I thought, OK let see what is what and try and establish who's is really longer than someones else!!!

 

So this challenge will be in a few parts and all I ask is to be honest about what you feedback in this thread.  So, still up for it?

 

OK here is part one.

 

The criteria is this one simple question:  Does your ATC program of choice get you from A > B with 'full' ATC coverage.  Simple enough, that's it.

 

Here's the rub though:  

 

 

1.Do not post about the voices, things like 'they are robotic, sounds like two wav file badly put together', you know the kind of stuff I mean, right!

2. DO not post that god forbid, you had to use the mouse or even the keyboard, or had to go from full-screen to window mode, not bothered

3. No bothered about wrong voices @i'm flying in USA and hear a Spanish controller, not interested.

4. Any other issues, not interested in. Just answer the criteria question

 

The only routes you can use are these:

 

 

1. LFML > LEPA

2. EDDM > LOWI

3. XXXX > KABQ (anywhere to KABQ)

4. WMKK >WSSS

 

 

Fly as many as you want and just post here your results. Did it get you there, if not what went wrong and why, was it Pilot error or ATC.

Also say what went well and why it went well. 

 

Happy flying for the week-end

 

I'll let this run for a few weeks to see how it goes

It could, but its about people being open and honest, simple criteria I think for the first challenge.

Great idea!

I will do it this weekend. For me this will be a good benchmark, so I can see if I may switch sometime to another ATC prog. At this time I have just one.

Fly what ever you want, try IFR and VFR, but remember the criteria for these set of flights  :smile:


Klaus, 

 

It will be and that's the point an open and honest feedback of the criteria, that's all is expected

 

 

Have fun

OK, I did the flight from Marseilles to Palma using default ATC.  Full IFR flight Point A to point B with no hitches

 

or giddyups.  Smooth as butter.

Hi Tom

 

Cool, again keep the criteria in mind and be honest about how it goes.

Just finished first flight from LFML to LEPA and had complete ATC gate to gate as well as AI interaction throughout with PROATC-X. Left from gate B8 and was assigned the MAME4N departure for runway 31R. and the LORE2M arrival for runway 6L. (ILS) with the ADX transition. Except for the second descent which was a little late, though still time to catch up, the rest of the descent path was on glide slope, and ATC observed and assigned all way point altitude constraints as well for both departure and arrival procedures.

Good One, so the default ATC gets you from A>B, one so far

Are we allowed to divert to an alternate once we arrive at B?

Not in Part 1, but you have already arrived at B. So how would you divert when you have arrived at B already  :smile:

 

 

Once you have flown 1 or more of the route, post what went well and why also what didn't go well and why.

Good PIREP there Tom, that what is needed.  Some positives also somethings didn't go as expected

 

Well done
