Is there anyway to get ATC flight instructions to match your Flight Plan.
Altitude, Heading Etc.
I know about requesting altitude increase/ decrease and 'follow your own navigation' Etc, but if following IFR rules under ATC the instructions seem to wildly differ from your flight plan.
I can understand diversions for emergencies Ect, but under normal use surely this don't reflect real flight operations.
Perhaps I'm wrong, anyone care to explain.
See if this helps.
Not quite what I was looking for.
I set a flight plan with an altitude of FL290.
I can use Ground control to give me IFR clearance and the Tower for Take off Etc, and all seems OK.
If I then use ATC under IFR it always gives me wildly different altitudes, and a heading that takes me off my original flight plan.
To get over this I can either cancel the Instrument Flight Rules and just use Flight Following, or simply don't use ATC.
I notice that all the 'Flight Plan' videos don't use any Ground Control, or Air Traffic Control.
This is also the same when I was using FSX and earlier simulators.
Perhaps this is the way it works in real life, if it is then whats the point of filing a flight plan with waypoints, speeds Altitudes, Etc.
Using ATC does get me to the correct airport eventually.
Just my curiosity about true flight, but there is a possability that I'm doing something wrong, or some unknown reason for this.
Perhaps if there is a real airline pilot out there he could help out my curiosity.
