When departing, do you have permission to back-taxi

November, 9, 2019 by

When you are ready for departure and are request takeoff, you may not have the ability to request back taxi but you as the pilot in command have the ability to back taxi if you feel you need to.

On Infinite Flight, the trained expert ATC know this and will prepare for such.

Do not take your time though because your back taxi will likely cause some kind of conflict. Do not be surprised if you are issued a “please expedite” instruction.
