  1. These are a set of scripts that I have written down to help me with VFR communications when using P2A. I though I'd share them here so others can use them if they want as there is not much focusing solely on VFR flight. This is a work in progress as I try document the different phases of flight. I would appreciate any suggestions/corrections that anyone finds. I will post updates when I make them. Pilot2Atc VFR Scripts UPDATES: 2018-09-12 - Added Bravo Transition and Arrival script 2017-10-22 - Added Pattern work script
  2. 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"
  3. Scenario: VFR Flight from Uncontrolled Airport (6S0) with no Flight Following arriving at Class C airport (KBIL). Contacted Approach approx 23 miles out per sectional with phrase, [Approach, <CallSign> is at <Altitude> Inbound for VFR Pattern Entry Runway <Runway>], received a response to expect runway "A" and then to expect to enter left downwind for runway "B". Read back for pattern entry for runway "B" per suggested response. Continued on and never got handed off to the tower. I ended up getting switched over by using the phrase [Approach <CallSign> has the field in sight]. Contacted tower with [Tower, <CallSign> to Land]. was directed to enter pattern for runway "A". Entered for runway "A" and landed with no issues. The suspected issue is not being handed off to Tower after reaching the Destination Tower Radius. Also questioned the switching of runways, but that may be due to me using the "To Land" after forcing the switch to tower. I've attached the portion of the Log file for this leg of the flight.

  4. It's not the Star of Bethlehem - it's the star of Neufbrisach, Alsace (France): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1i6Y8i1i-WwLGKj5wbT5J004Dk9hT0599/view?usp=sharing
  5. SInce the update, I am no longer able to get flight following. Even using the Say It function still does not work. This has happened on 2 different flights since the update. Here is an excerpt from the log showing what is happening.

  6. Whenever I plan a VFR flight, the altitudes it gives me for entering the pattern stays at my plan altitude. I've attached screenshots of an example. Thanks! Mike
