Early Comms (leaving the gate)

Recommended Posts

Team

Just updated to Vox 741 on server PC (P3DV41) succesfully ..... but have a question about comms before take-off.

The circumstance that annoys somewhat is that if I use co-pilot (PNF), not only can i not toggle back to pilot (PF) until taxi clearance is issued but more annoyingly is that PNF asks for taxi directly after startup, many minutes early (ie does not wait for both a pushback & startup to complete).

However, if as PF I do the comms, I control the timing of the requests (including a pushback & start, not possible with PNF) and handover to the PNF during taxi.

I guess the question/s are:
Is this the way it is or am I missing a setting / procedure and / or is there a workaround (ie the comms & timing of the PNF are the same as the PF mode)

Thanks for any notes you may have.  


for now, cheers

a follow up on the above, perhaps maybe there's a way of sequencing / delaying the PNF taxi request until pushback is complete.

Yes, there is. Just say call for pushback without pressing PTT, this way the FO will only request pushback untill you ask for taxi. You can, also, say ‘call fro clearance’ and ‘call for taxi’.
