Thank You for informatione.

May be You can add clarance for this only as text massage or add ability to chosse as option and before de-iceing procedure we can request for "normal" taxi.

Hi
And sorry for my english again
Please let me introduce two feature request:
1. i wonder if it's possible to add feature to request ATC to go on alternate airports eg in ETOPS operation (or enroute alternate)
Yesterday I flown in ETOPS rule flight and I have engine failure just behind iceland and I need divert to ETOPS alternate (BIKF). But it's not possible to request ATC to direct to airport
2. Second request is add abbility to request ATC divert left or right from current track due the weather or traffic

Best regards
Grzegorz

1. Somewhere in the options you can enable asking for one alternate.
2. Yes, that would be nice, but I would assume this needs new voice recordings for the corresponding request/reply.

Point 2 already requested and added to Daves don't forget list so Dave doesn't forget ;) :lol:

I often hear R/W aircraft approaching Dublin asking for permission to alter course by 10 or 20 degrees to avoid weather. They are normally instructed to do so and to contact ATC when they are clear to resume course. This would be a nice feature as I often see gaps in the weather slightly off my course which would be nice to take advantage of.

I've put it on my don't-forget list ;)

thank you for information
It will be great if this function will be add.

Unfortunetly alternate airports function is base on departure alternate but not on enroute or ETOPS alternate.
If you need divert, you have to do this without ATC control and without permision. Ofcourse in fs world this situations aren't to often, i think many of simmers not using failure options on aircraft - by the way i was suprised that it happend to me in flight :) and may be this function is not a "must have" in PF3.

I think you meant destination alternate here.

For other situations you have to declare an emergency, PF3 will find a suitable airport using the runway length configured in your aircraft profile in PF3.

Alternatively it might be possible to close and restart PF3, load an alternative flight plan (to one of your alternates) and check-in with ATC while in the air (similar to what you would do for untowered airports), but I haven't tested this.

Been using PF3 for a couple of years now after several years of using Radar Contact and there a few feature requests/improvements I would like to put forward for consideration.

Being able to configure % probability of being required to deviate from flight plan during climb and descent to simulate traffic congestion (Not during cruise phase though).

For me the Holding process in PF3 is a little too staged managed in that it is you the pilot who specifies where in the plan the hold is going to be. I think it would be better if you set the % probability of a hold (0% means no hold) and PF3 chooses where the hold takes place. And perhaps the addition of a hold for weather option.

Being able request fly Direct to specific waypoint in plan. To work the same way as Warp to waypoint works but you have to fly towards it rather be positioned at it.

I would like to be able to request vectors to landing runway even after the last waypoint on the plan.

Being able to respond to ATC instruction with :- Unable

These are nice to have enhancements for me but in any case PF3 is still 1 of 3 must have products on my list

Thanks

Thank you for your suggestions.

We take the view that you know where holding points are when checking your charts and so provide you with a means to indicate to PF3 where they are, otherwise PF3 would have no idea.

This is already implemented. Please see section 9.5 of the PF3 User Guide
