  1. First, thanks for this great product! Would it be possible when landing at a towered airport under VFR for the tower to assign the pattern entry based on direction of flight? This would involve adding some additional calls that would be recognized as valid. Entry points could be: Left Downwind, Right Downwind, Left Base, Right Base, Straight In Reporting points could be: Midfield (for Downwind entries), X mile base or X mile final Calls to add: <Tower Name><Call Sign><Distance><Direction from Airport><Current Altitude><Landing Intention>with<ATIS Code>/weather I don't think there would a way to validate the ATIS code unless it was stored somewhere in the sim that you could read, but it is required IRL so it would just be there to reinforce correct behavior. It would be cool that if the pilot left out the ATIS/weather at the end of the call that Tower would respond asking the pilot to verify the ATIS code or having the weather prior to giving him the pattern entry. Example: Approaching KSBP (San Luis Obispo) From the North East landing runway 29 Pilot: "San Luis Tower, Skyhawk 123AB Ten miles Northeast at Three Thousand Five Hundred landing with Bravo" (This could be used instead of the existing call "Skyhawk 123AB inbound at Three Thousand Five Hundred feet for VFR pattern entry 29") Tower: "Skyhawk 123AB enter Right Base 29 report 3 mile base" Pilot: "Enter right base, report three miles, 123AB" Pilot: "Skyhawk 123AB Three mile right base" Tower: "Skyhawk 123AB cleared to land runway 29" Pilot: "Cleared to land runway 29, 123AB"
  2. VFR No Flight Plan

    Here is a link to some scripts I created for VFR flights. They cover most of what you'll need. There are still a few things i'm trying to get down before I add them. VFR Scripts (Work in progress)
  3. World Traffic 3 trial no flights??

    Glad you got it working.
  4. World Traffic 3 trial no flights??

    I was able to see ground traffic at LPPR with the following settings. Matched Departure Time to current Sim time as shown in the Key Command Menu - Display Flight Info for Airport Max Number of Flight Plans - 10000 Traffic Density - 100 percent Percentage of Gates With Parked Aircraft - 0 percent Flight Plan Load Radius - 100 Nm Auto-Gen Ground Routes - Checked Auto-Gen Flights - Unchecked Add GA Flights - Checked Add Military Flights - Checked Number of GA flights to add for Dep and Arrival - 140 Number of Military flights to add for Dep and Arrival - Auto In the Key Command Menu under Enable/Disable Regions I have AFRE_Real_Traffic as the only region active. It did take about 5-10 minutes before I saw any planes pushing back from gates. Hope this helps you some.

    What airport are you starting at? If it is a stock one, I can try loading up there to see if I can get traffic to show. It wouldn't be until later tonight until I could try.

    In order to have traffic on the ground, the airport needs to have a valid taxi network defined. Open the airport in WED and see if it has a valid taxi network with ramp starts where you would expect them to be.
  7. Closed Traffic Flight Plan Setup

    rastpb, When you were having the issue, did you call ground first and get a taxi clearance. I think I had a problem similar to yours a while back and I think it was because I didn't get the taxi clearance prior to calling tower. Tower kept telling me to contact ground. I have had instances when P2A seemed to get hung and then all at once I would get replies to the last several calls I made. I just attributed it to P2A downloading weather at the time.
  8. ATC Vocab

    This thread has some VFR scripts specific to pilot2atc. VFR Scripts (Work in process)
  9. Closed Traffic Flight Plan Setup

    rastpb, Checkout this post, VFR Scripts (Work in Progress). It may be of some help. When I do closed traffic I don't setup a flight plan in P2A.
  10. Speech Recognition

    When I had this issue, turning off Enhancements in the microphone settings (in Windows) did the trick for me.
  11. VFR Scripts (Work in Progress)

    JeDa. I hope the scripts work for you. Keep in mind that these were written with considerations for ATC in the USA. I know there are some differences over in Europe but I have no direct knowledge of what they may be or how they apply to P2A. Also keep up the great videos!
  12. VFR Scripts (Work in Progress)

    I will look at what is available for uncontrolled or "pilot controlled" airports. It is my understanding that the UNICOM would be used to query information (winds, active runway, etc) as you are approaching the airport. Normal communication would be done using the CTAF frequency with the position calls so that you and the other pilots can mentally paint a picture of what is going on (which runway(s) are in use and where everyone is). I don't think there will be much if any other than the querying of information that P2A will help out in the pilot controlled airports.

  14. Possible bug on VFR Flight

    Thanks Dave. On the 2nd flight I started at 6S3 which is 31 NM from KBIL which is why I contacted Approach first.
