X-Plane 12 – Nuove features ATC










Invece di un sistema ATC universale per il mondo intero, con la stessa fraseologia e procedure, l’ATC in X-Plane 12 introduce 6 regioni distinte (Asia, Australia, Euro, India, USA e Global) tra le altre nuove funzionalità.

Le regole statunitensi non sono più il sistema unico applicato per ogni aeroporto.

In ogni regione potrai notare cambiamenti di voci, accenti, ma anche messaggi e standard distinti.

Anche la distanza dal controller, l’altitudine attuale e gli ostacoli naturali possono influire sulla qualità dell’audio. Gli sviluppatori di X-Plane hanno anche elencato le nuove funzionalità di dialogo supportate nel nuovo X-Plane 12


  • Branching menu-based commands for more complex calls
  • Menu order prioritises the most important or likely calls
  • Dynamic calls, tailored for the current situation
  • Push-to-talk radio handling
  • See the name of the current listening station
  • Can plan a route using either VORs or airways
  • Click to tune ATIS frequencies
  • Dialog can be moved, resized and popped out
  • Message history can be scrolled
  • Usable in VR
  • Choose whether to see messages just for you or for other aircraft also

The AI pilots interaction with the ATC have evolved. For example, they will proceed with the latest ATC instruction at the end of the order, not just when it’s triggered so that made the AI pilot to apply the instruction before it was said until the end. Now it’s more realistic.

Regional Features

  • Varied accents per region
  • Multiple voices for controllers, both male and female
  • Phrases can change i.e. “point” vs. “decimal”
  • Default transition altitude per region
  • Units (currently only pressure) per region
  • Untracked VFR squawk code per region
  • Potential for more region-specific changes in future

New VFR Features

  • Flight Following
  • Traffic proximity warnings
  • Fly circuits at airports that support it
  • Low pass request
  • Touch and go request
  • Zone transit request
  • Occasional position checks done by the controller
  • Different message flow for VFR flights at FISO airports
  • Request landing at an underlying controlled airport from a regional controller
  • Downwind/Late Downwind and Final calls
  • Change approach type between full-stop, low pass and touch-and-go
  • “Changing Frequency” and “Request Frequency Change” calls
  • “Request heading to” nearby airports call
