Don't know if anyone has addressed this before but here goes.. I am wondering if there is a way to change the position reports of pilots now that we have gotten rid of the XXX
Let's say the flight plan for KLM777 is 61N030W - 58N040W - 55N050W - CUDDY
Now the reports are as follows
Position 61N30W FL370 M.77 Groundspeed 500, 60N29W next.
Correct reporting would be callsign, current position, time (Z not needed), FL, next waypoint with estimated time overhead, waypoint after that
Pilot. KLM777 Position 61N030W at 1702 FL370 estimating 58N040W at 1748, 55N050W next.
ATC. KLM777 Roger, 61N030W at 1702 FL370, 58N040W at 1748, 55N050W next, report 58N040W this frequency (or give the next frequency)
Pilot. Readback correct, 58N040W this frequency KLM777
Just a suggestion, don't know how difficult it would be to program
All the best,
