Disconnecting vom PE after landing

Disconnecting vom PE after landing

Postby Thomas_Horn » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:30 pm

Sometimes, when the controller seems to be very busy, I disconnect from PE after I landed and cleared the runway - so I do not wait for parking instructions.
I observed however that my flight is not logged on PE Aware when I do this.

So it seems it is kind of "mandatory" to end each PE flight with the parking instructions from the controller? Please advice.

Thanks, Thomas

Years ago, when I was using VATSIM for pseudo-ATC, I noticed the tracker they used (same one as PEAware, more or less) would not register a flight as "arrived" without some amount of ground travel. I assume it was because the tracker algorithm needs to see some low-speed, low-level movement to make that "arrived" determination. I've always taxied to parking on PE, so I never noticed the same thing happened here.
