IFATC Manual v22.1.0.2 released

February, 28, 2022 by

This version is minor, primarily focusing on the removal of “FNF” verbiage. The only major change is to the usage of Light Aircraft on the ATIS. Per the manual:

This command must not be used at GA focused airports but can be used at the Controller’s discretion at any other airport based on airport accommodations (such as GA parking and airport layout), current traffic, and airport staffing. Controllers should make every attempt to accept light* aircraft at airports which accept them IRL.

TLDR: Denying lights is now controller discretion. Lights must not be denied at GA airports.

Tyler Shelton is the ATC Community Manager for Infinite Flight. He is also a real-world civilian air traffic controller with the FAA assigned to Harrisburg International Airport [KMDT].
