New “Outside Airspace” command for Center

April, 29, 2021 by

Small ATC related features can go unnoticed sometimes if you don’t know what you’re looking but sweet baby Jesus, hallelujah, do we have a new command that will make any Center controller smile.

As Center, under the “Expect vectors…” command sub-menu you will find the new “Outside Airspace” command. This can be used when an aircraft is, you guessed it, outside your airspace.

It will send “Callsign, you are outside of my airspace, proceed on course”. Then the pilot will be able to respond with “roger, proceed on course”. After that you’d then send a frequency change and off they go.

Sweet and simple, plain english. It’s the small things and it’s effective.

There are a lot of amazing new things to try out in Infinite Flight’s 21.1 update, it is currently undergoing beta testing. Learn more how you can help test the app and join the Open Beta program at infiniteflight.com/blog.
