Hi – I am a private pilot w an instrument rating IRL but just getting started with VATSIM. I am running a Redbird TD2 sim with P3D. Having gone through the startup information, I understand that we should not start a flight on an active runway. However, my sim does not give an option to start on a ramp, only on runways. Any suggestions on how to proceed so as not to cause a disruption?
Before connecting, slew over to a ramp. Or, there might be a way to update the TD2 start positions and add ramp locations. I have to imagine that training institutions that use TD2s want to be able to start on a ramp so that students get practice with taxiing out.
