Vectors to final flies you into a mountain?

Recommended Posts

Does P2ATC know where terrain is? I fly into many small airports with no established approaches, and often P2ATC will vector me into terrain if I let it. I know it probably can't see the terrain, but I want to make sure there isn't a setting somewhere to avoid this.

That's not a bug, it's a feature - it's accurately simulating Spanish Air Traffic Control. 🤣

If there are no approaches into an airport, P2A doesn't really have any way of knowing how to vector you to avoid mountainous terrain.  You can get vectors to a Visual Straight-In, but best to see and avoid terrain.  This is not a problem in flat terrain.

I figured as much. If the terrain is flat, no problems, it's only the mountains that get in my way!

 

Thanks!
