  1. Hi Dave With P2A connected I am unable to use Com 2 to get the ATIS at my destination. Is P2A not setup to enable use of Com 2 ? If P2A is not setup to handle Com 2 I assume I would have to use Com 1 and request a frequency change to get the destination ATIS and then return back to the original frequency. Is that correct? P2A seems to be overly sensitive to speed. I am flying the PMDG737 in LNAV/VNAV and the a/c has the speed restriction set to 250kts. I see a slight positive variation of perhaps 2 or 3 knots and P2A keeps telling me to reduce speed to 250kts. Is this normal? Regards Colin

    Told to descend during SID

    If ATC want me to follow the SID routing but ignore any altitude restrictions then what phraseolgy would be used?
  3. Hi Dave I have just tried to fly the route again from EGGD to EGJJ. My clearance was as before "Goldstar Seven Three Eight is cleared to Echo Golf Juliet Juliet, climb via the EXMO1Z departure , with the EXMOR transition , then as filed. Expect departure runway Zero Nine. Climb to Flight Level One Two Zero via the departure. Expect higher clearances Seven minutes after departure. Squawk Three Six Four Zero" I flew the route but had a real problem when told to "Contact BRISTOL Radar Director on One Three Six Decimal Zero Seven". Although I selected the frequency and made it active, I had to try a number of times before the controller would respond. I have the Log file if that is any help? Regards Colin
  4. Hi Dave I have discovered that if I say for example "<Aircraft callsign> is ready for departure" instead of "<Aircraft callsign> ready for departure" then Pilot2Atc always interprets it as "<Aircraft callsign> ready to copy IFR clearance" and tells me to contact Clearance again. I know this is my problem but can you try this out yourself and let me know if you get the same result. Regards Colin
  5. Hi Dave. During a flight from EGGD Bristol to EGJJ Jersey I was given the following clearance. "Goldstar Seven Three Eight is cleared to Echo Golf Juliet Juliet, climb via the EXMO1Z departure , with the EXMOR transition , then as filed. Expect departure runway Zero Nine. Climb to Flight Level One Two Zero via the departure. Expect higher clearances Seven minutes after departure. Squawk Four Five Six Five". I was flying the PMDG 737 and had the FMC setup for an LNAV/RNAV departure to follow the SID. After departure I started the climb to the cleared FL120 but because of the altitude restriction of 6000 feet at EXMOR Pilot2Atc wanted me to descend down to 6000 feet with a speed less than 250 kts. Surely, if I am cleared to FL120 then Pilot2Atc should be aware of the 6000 feet altitude restriction at EXMOR and should not clear me to FL120 or it should not make me descend back down. I hope that all makes sense. Regards Colin

    Taxiway designation

    Thanks Dave
  7. Pilot2Atc seems to use the very outdated FSX taxiway designations when compared to Navigraph chart taxiway designations. This makes it very difficult to take the correct taxiway routing to the active runway. Is there any way to get Pilot2Atc in sync with Navigraph charts? Regards Colin
  8. Thanks Dave, that was my problem. It is easy when you know how hahaha!
  9. Hi folks I classify myself as reasonably intelligent. I was a real world pilot in a past life but that button above the Pwr button has me totally confused. For the life of me I cannot get it to do what I want. I have the map showing above, along with the flight plan WPT, DIST, DTK etc. I then click on the down facing minimise button (I dont know what else to call the stupid thing) and I have a black screen apart from the flight plan WPT, DIST, DTK etc at the top of the screen. I have watched the YouTube video to set the minimise button so when you click on it the only part visible is the bottom comms panel but no matter what I do I cannot get the stupid thing to work. I apologise for my frustration but that button is driving me to become an alcoholic. Can anyone give me an absolute idiots step by step guide on setting it up? I think my problem in setting it up has something to do with the Windows minimise/maximise, if that is of any help. Regards Colin P.S. Pilot2ATC is developing into a great program apart from that button hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

    Taxiways

    I do not understand the significance of the Taxi Route Error message. Whenever I have had this message appear when clicking on Taxiways I have always received very precise taxi instructions from Pilot2ATC. I can see in Taxiway Maintenence the the green taxiway paths do not go to each and every Gate. Is that the reason for the Taxi Route Error message? On the Taxiway Maintenance screen the green taxiways do not exactly overlay the taxiways on the default scenery i.e. the green taxiways and hold short points are way off in the region of 07R at LEBL. Is that a problem? How accurate do the green taxiways have to be in order for Pilot2ATC to work correctly? There are a number of taxiways in real life at LEBL that do not have green taxiways in Pilot2ATC. Am I correct in assuming that as long as Pilot2ATC has one taxi route to a arriving or departing runway it is happy? Sorry for all the questions Regards Colin
  11. I have just completed a flight from LEBL to LEIB but as I was descending in the STAR I twice had messages popped up very very briefly which said something to the effect that the MSA was 6000ft and that I should select a different STAR. At this point ATC chose to ignore me and I had to land without Tower clearance. Here is my route LARP2R LARPA UN859 TOLSO TOLS3V.
