CTAF - Discussion Thread

Pilots not communicating at all is a sad fact of life. Yesterday I had 3 pilots flying as a group from EKYT to ENTO pushing back, taxiing and taking of without talking to me sitting as Enroute controller in Denmark. While a Supervisor initially got them off the network, they were soon back.
Why fly online, if you do not want to talk to anyone?
