Climb instructions

Recommended Posts

Since some time I noticed ATC is very strict with assigning higher altitudes during departure climb.

For example, my last flight took me out of ENBR via the REKL1C departure. I filed a Cruise Alt of 280 and the departure part of the flight plan looked like this:


UNPUT (5000ft) 

BR521 (FL075)

GISUK (FL120) 

REKLI (FL240) 

VALDI (FL280) 



I was cleared to 4000 ft initially, then i was cleared to FL100, which i reached after UNPUT. I had to level off as I didn't receive a higher clearance. At waypoint BR521 I was cleared to FL120 which i reached shortly after just to level off again. At GISUK I was given FL240, had to level off again for 20 nm until i finally was cleared to FL280 when passing REKLI. 

So it looks like ATC will strictly stick to the altitudes which where calculated in my flight plan, even if I clearly could climb much faster. This was not the case previously, I think it started with one of the last versions of P2ATC. 

Another thing I noticed is that P2ATC seems not to allow to change the altitudes for waypoints, it would always revert back to the automatically calculated altitudes after I press  validate. 


Did somebody notice same behavior recently?

Please email me ( the P2A log file so I can see if this is a bug.  

Log files are located in: 
where <UserName> is your PC user name. Portions of the path may be hidden by default, so be sure Windows Explorer has Show Hidden Items checked in the View tab.
A new one is created each time you start Pilot2ATC, so if you take the most recent one when you have the error, you should have the correct one.
