IFR from controlled airport to uncontrolled airport

Recommended Posts

So far everything, for the most part, seems to operating very well when you fly from controlled airport to another Controlled Airport. However flying from a controlled airport IFR into a uncontrolled airport is challenging. I get clearance to the airport no problem and ATC says to expect vectors to the RNAV approach. That's fine. Now as I get closer ATC should be assigning  stepdowns to different altitudes, then to vector me toward the final RNAV approach. The time before I flew yesterday I had to request a lower ALT with Center after that everything was OK. Yesterday I didn't hear anything even after requesting a lower ATL. I had to fly the approach myself without any CLC from ATC. What is the proper way in P2ATC to handle this situation??

When I flew the route in real life some years ago ATC would Clear me down step by step and then a final heading to intercept the final RNAV approach course. I searched the manual and videos but couldn't find a solution.

Thanks in advance

Harry,

There are many variables that come into play.  The settings for ATC Assigns STAR and ATC Assigns Approach are two that would affect this scenario.

For now, the best way to get this scenario to work is to request vectors to the desired approach at the destination airport which should trigger the descents and vectors.

 

I will be working on this and other controlled/uncontrolled airport scenarios in the coming updates.

 

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks for your reply. I will keep this in mind. BTW those voice files from RealATC.com are great. Having a blast using them. They're offering a great deal. Can't go wrong. Thanks for mentioning them on this site.

take care

Harry
