all pilots regardless of country, need to read and speak english as the primary language for interaction with all other pilots…just because you are with locals that are more comfortable with the language and use that local language over the local radio traffic doesn’t mean a rule isn’t being violated without being enforced. Just because I drive 5mph over the speed limit and cops don’t pull me over doesn’t mean I’m not breaking the law.
In the US, there IS TREE instead of THREE…i hear it all day long at KDAB and KMCO and KSFB on ATC’s side where I predominantly fly. Just because the pilots are too lazy to use it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be. I’m glad the ATC system is instilling the rules of aviation.
If you want to make an arcade version that allows local languages for ATC, I guess thats fine, but for realism, it needs to be in English only.
Stop trying to take this simulator and dumb it down into a game more and more losing the quality introduction to realistic aviation. If you want to get real enough to use ATC, then you’re going to have to understand English the same as a real pilot would.
