VFR flying

Recommended Posts

Haven't done any VFR flights in ages, but for some reason have gotten the itch to do so (my doctors says there's a spray for that 😮). There's not much info on VFR in the docs and I'm trying to figure out what the VFR capabilities of P2A are. For starters, can I fly VFR without filing a flight plane and/or without flight following, but still be able to tune unicom and announce my position and intentions?

Yes you can.  But don't expect to hear anything from ATC since you are just announcing to other pilots.

You should be able to make all the legitimate calls to Towers, Ground, etc., and as in real life, flight plans are optional.

Seems to work fine, but there's something I think needs to be added. Right now the only way to report your vfr position is to identify a navaid (or landmark?) that you're over. Sometimes there's nothing of any significance to be over, if you take my meaning. It would be better to be able to report "XX miles [direction] of airport, landing rwy Z." It would be great if P2A would calculate the distance and direction for you.
