I have noticed when I set up a flight plan going to a Uncontrolled airport…
My co-pilot forgets how to speak after takeoff (wont handle radio even though switch is on)
I get this ANNOYING map pin for the airport I took off from. HOW do I get RID of this PIN??? Most of the time its smack in the middle of my PFD!
i beleive its becuase you have to have a flight plan, and also radio in to the appropriate stations.
Right I found out how this happens a few days ago.
If you are using ATC to clear flight plan, then taxi, sometimes, when you get to the runway (airports without towers/ATIS only), the system doesnt see you’ve finished your taxi. If, you are also using automated ATC this will also stop working. The last time this happened to me I didnt take off I wandered back to the runway start where the pin was … got CTD.
The second time this happened, I announced takeoff, depart straight out and as soon as I rotated, my ATC lady was straight onto the controller and the pin vnished.
Looking back, this only happens at ATIS airfields.
Thanks all…Ill try the taxi ribbons and the announced takeoff. Correct it happens at uncontrolled airports only. Although I swear I announce takeoff.
