I want to start off by saying that I am not a pilot which would be easy to figure out after reading my question. I have been playing a flying simulator called "infinite flight" for the last two years. The game has a multiplayer option that enables a player to fly with other players live in different regions. For multiplayer there is ATC that is used to keep traffic flowing. I understand most of the commands but there are a few that confuse me.
The left traffic, right traffic for instance, when you announce inbound does that that mean you are currently left of the runway? Or does that simply indicate which way you will taxi after landing? Also when do you need to announce inbound and when do you announce final? One more question, there are rules in multiplayer that will get you violations. Such as max taxi speed is 35kts. Also the max air speed is 260kts below 10k ft. Are these rules broken in real life very often? Thanks again for your time.
