Radar Contact 4

Important changes effective Version - IYP Users ONLY!

If you say the phrase...
    "Activate ATC Responses"
the following operations will become effective:

  1. If you are running down the IYP checklists, and Michelle asks you to obtain IFR clearance, you can say, for example,

      "Contact Clearance Delivery"

      "Contact Ground for Clearance"

    depending upon the airport's facilities. After going through the exchange with ATC and receiving your clearance, you answer Michelle by saying,

      "We have IFR clearance."

    This command will advance the checklist procedures, and contemporaneously send an Acknowledgement to the Radar Contact (RC) system.

  2. Similarly, as you run through the checklists, Michelle will ask that you request Taxi clearance. You can switch to the Ground frequencey by saying, for example,

      "Going to 121.0"

    or you can simply say,

      "Request Taxi"

    or any other permissible command as listed below. After obtaining clearance to the assigned runway, you advance the checklist procedures by saying,

      "We have Taxi clearance."

    and IYP will once again automatically send the Acknowledgement to the RC system.

  3. Once in flight, when instructed by ATC to change to a different controller, you simply say to Michelle, "Going to {FREQUENCY}". She'll acknowledge your instruction, then send the acknowledgement to the current controller, change Com 1 to the assigned frequency, and then contact the new controller.

    For example, if you are instructed to contact Seattle on 125.1, then you simply say...

      "Going to 125.1"

    and Michelle will take care of the rest.

  4. When ATC provides you with an Altimeter Check, by simply instructing Michelle to set the Altimeter, she will also send the Acknowledgement to the controller. For example, you can simply say...

      "Altimeter 2991"


      "Altimeter 1013"   (millibars)

    and Michelle will then send to confirmation to ATC.

  5. When instructed by ATC to change your airspeed, you simply say to Michelle, (for example)...

      "Airspeed 250"

    and Michelle will take care of sending the Acknowledgement to ATC.

  6. When instructed by ATC to make a heading alteration, you simply say to Michelle, (for example)...

      "Turn right heading 345"

    and Michelle will once again take care of sending the Acknowledgement to ATC.

  7. Likewise, when instructed by ATC to perfect an altitude change, you simply say to Michelle, (for example)...

      "Climb and maintain 8,000"
      "Climb and maintain Flight Level 250"
      "Descend and maintain Flight Level 070"
      "Descend and maintain 6,000"

    and Michelle will take care of sending the Acknowledgement to ATC.

  8. Okay... you've made a problematic approach! You're about 800' AGL and it's NOT looking good! That's when you say...

      "Execute going around"

    Michelle will set the airspeed to the 'going around airspeed' for the particular aircraft, pull up the gear (assuming they're retractable), retract the flaps to their up and trim position, disconnect all of the ILS approach stuff (if active), then arbitrarily set the altitude to climb to an altitude 2,500 above the runway elevation. Then, she'll contact ATC to announce that you're...

      "Going Missed"

To turn this feature OFF, say, "Deactivate ATC Responses"

NOTE: The ATC Acknowledgement mode of operation is "remembered" between start ups. Whenever this feature is in use, your Co-Pilot will say...
    "ATC Acknowledgement is active."
when you start IYP.
