ATC does not respond to "Request departure runway" request

Recommended Posts

  1. import IFR flight plan
  2. validate
  3. File
  4. Request clearance, receive clearance with wrong runway (this is fine that it's "wrong", but i want to request a different runway)
  5. Request taxi and get taxi instructions to "wrong" runway (expected)
  6. Me: "<Callsign>, request departure runway 05L"
  7. ATC: This is ground, you need to be on Clearance delivery"
  8. Change radio freq and
  9. repeat step 6 above
  10. No response from Clearance

This is with latest public beta.

Alternatively, if you DO successfully get a runway change request from clearance, my taxi instructions are still to the original "wrong" runway.

I will try to get some log files for this if it's helpful, but I have had this happen at least 3 times in the past week.

Do you have the option "Force Pilot Runway Selection" turned on? I believe this overrides and makes your requested runway the one it will use.
