    Multiple Instances of P2ATC Error

    You may have to reboot the PC to clear them. Dave

    It is on the long term TODO list. Dave

    Multiple Instances of P2ATC Error

    Never heard this one before. How are you starting the program? I've tried to get mine to do this, and the only way I can get this error is by starting the program and then starting the program by clicking on the exe file. Any possibility you are double clicking where a single click starts it? Have you checked the Details tab in Task Manager to see if it's shown there? Dave

    Ultra Long Flights

    On a long flight, if you have the co-pilot set to handle radios, it should keep up and be ready to fly when you come back. No need to pause P2A. Another option would be to just disconnect P2A for the long haul portion of the flight and then use the recovery process to get P2A to catch up to where your aircraft is. Be sure the same flight plan is loaded in P2A as in the aircraft FMS Connect to the SIM File the flight plan Find the nearest Center Freq or request a transfer to Center from the nearest Appr, Departure, or Tower frequency Make an initial call - <Call Sign> at FL 430 Dave

    Problem with ATIS during flight

    There were 2 Bremen Centers with 125.1 as their frequency. You need to change both of them to 126.2.

    Problem with ATIS during flight

    What do you mean it "remains"? When I change it and press the Save button on the ARTCC tab, it changes in the Map. And when I close and open Taxi Mnt window, it comes up 126.2. Before using it in a flight, you may need to restart Pilot2ATC as controller frequencies are loaded into memory during the Data Loading phase of the program load.

    Problem with ATIS during flight

    If you can find an unused frequency in the area where this problem occurs, you can change the ARTCC frequency for BREMEN Radar Control for that area. Taxi Mnt, ARTCC tab enables this.

    Problem with ATIS during flight

    Reiner, I suspect that X-Plane is doing the ATIS broadcast. Check to be sure that X-Plane's ATC Controller is turned off and the Voice Volume is set to 0. Dave

    P2A Audio device select option

    You can select the "Speech Output Device" on the Speech tab of Config. The overall volume is controlled via the Windows Volume Mixer. Right-Click the Speaker icon on the task bar while P2A is running and set the overall volume for the program.

    Basic help for a Pilot2ATC shopper

    Gaz, 1) Yes. Either Navigraph or NavDataPro. 2) Yes, there is a copilot that manages the radio frequencies and responds to ATC. For requests initiated from the cockpit, there is a SayIt feature that allows you to select a phrase to say and have the copilot say it. The copilot does not change squawk codes or perform non radio related duties. 3) Yes. There may be variations from one to another and some 3rd party aircraft may not support standard FSUIPC protocols, so some functions may have to be done in the cockpit, but generally, it supports most 3rd party aircraft. 4) World Traffic, and all other AI engines control the movements of their aircraft. Otherwise, what would they do. In general, P2A interacts with you and can alert you when AI Aircraft are nearby, in front of you, etc. In the case of WT3, you can set it up to use the X-Plane AI Aircraft and in that case, P2A can see and interact with them. There's a pinned topic in this forum on this subject. Thanks for your interest. Give the trial a try! Dave

    Flight Level

    Never mind the Flight Plan. I found the bug and will have it fixed for release 2505R3. Thanks for the report. Dave

    Let me know what your Flt Plan route and procedures are and I'll look into it. Thanks, Dave

    Incorrect descent altitudes?

    Joe, Looks like a bug. I'll investigate and be sure it's fixed for 2505R3. Thanks, Dave

    PILOT2ATC IFR Questions - Xplane 11

    1) Be sure that Pilot2ATC is using NOAA weather and any differences will be minor. Let P2A provide ATIS and turn the ATC and voice volume OFF in X-Plane. Of course there is always the possibility that P2A will pull a slightly different METAR report than X-Plane depending on the exact time of download, but differences should be minimal. 2) Importing the flight plan from SIM Brief to P2A imports only the route, not the performance or other information. After adding the procedures to P2A's flight plan, you need to be sure that what is entered in the FMS of the aircraft is identical to the P2A plan. This would be true in the real world as well. After you get clearance from ATC, you need to double check that nothing has changed (it rarely does) and make any adjustments to the FMS needed to keep them in sync. Planned Cruise Speed and Altitude should match. P2A will calculate the TOD based on those values along with the planned descent rate. You can adjust all three variables to get a TOD that you desire. Hope that helps. Dave
