Radar Contact

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Radar Contact is now Free Ware ,program and key can be downloaded.

What is Radar Contact is it a addon ATC services for FSX,

My problem is, I load a route say from FS Commander on the second computer into FSXs Flight Planner it then appears as a route in FSXs  GPS.

ATC Clearances take me from the gate to the runway , then Clears me to take off, After that it wants to give me Headings to my destination. It will not let me follow my Flight Planned route and request report passing my planned route Nav aids.

Will Radar Contacted ATC follow my planned route.

Are you filing an IFR flight plan as opposed to a GPS or VFR plan?

Hello.

I construct my flight plan in FS Commander IFR plan on my second computer then open FSX Flight Panner look up file and load it into FSX, it has the Radar dot in the circle for IFR, 

Flight conditions are full IMC if I request taxy without the Flight Plan loade I get taxi denied aerorome is IFR only, with the plan loaded I get clearance to taxy., To take off, all my request are cleared, once airborne it’s radar headings, ignoring my flight plan route.

I don’t really want to talk to ATC  I prefer just using the Go Flight ATC module and select a number.  I find most addones quite complex in all the extra choices give in a programs, just want simple RT. It’s a bit like instrument reflections in the windscreen  it’s just a neuisance Fsx just manages to keep its head above the water line, I just want a fully working aeroplane.

We have Vox, Radar Contact, Professional X,  All I want is one that will simply follow my flight plan. What do you recommend.

Trubshaw

Yes, if WideFS is installed in the second computer.  It is in page 139 of the manual.

There is an option under controller options that says "No altitude restrictions". Check that box. Now when you take off, ATC will let you do anything you want until you get 30 miles away from the airport. So take off fly your departure procedure, and the last Waypoint of your departure procedure should be the beginning of your actual flight plan. As long as that way point is within 30 miles of the airport you'll be good to go.
