08 Sample Flight with ATC Interaction

This is one of my favorite flights KPHL-KJFK which I will use as a example of interaction with ATC.
It is always fun, well, one time I was not vectored correctly ( ATCs are humans, some are learning like you ...) and I crashed ... I felt bad, I should have declare missed approach and ask for vectors again .... I did not, I disconnected .... it might happen to you too, do not let it stop you from having fun flying on VATSIM.

Now the interaction.
I looked who was on line as ATCs and changed PHL_GROUND frequency

CAX77: Good evening Sir, CAX777 at KPHL ramp requesting IFR to KJFK as filled, CAX777
PHL_GROUND: CAX777 contact Tower 118.5 ..... comment....
CAX77: Over to Tower, CAX777 ( switched to Tower frequency)

CAX777: Alpha is current, will advise for taxi CAX777

I checked KPHL atis by typing .atis kphl_atis. it gave me altimeter info and departure Rwy 27L
I started engines and performed push back.

CAX777: Ready to taxi to 27L with Alpha, CAX777

PHL_TOWER: CAX777, Frequency change to advisory 122.800 approved. have a safe trip.

I switched to UNICOM frequency 122.800
I announced my heading on UNICOM

CAX777: dir DITCH, all the way to 9,000, CAX777

When I was approaching KARRS I contacted NY-CAM-APP ( switched to it's frequency)

CAX777 : Good evening Sir, with you, CAX777
NY-CAM-APP: CAX777, squawk 1566 ( no good evening .... we are all different ... *smile)

I switched squawk code to 1566.

Few minutes later ....

CAX777 : dep CAMRN hd 040, CAX777

CAX777: d/m 5000, CAX777
NY-CAM-AP: CAX777, turn left 310, d/m 4,000
CAX777: tl 310, d/m 4,000, CAX777
NY-CAM-AP: CAX777, turn left 250, join 22L localizer
CAX777: tl 250, join 22L loc
NY-CAM-AP: CAX777, 6 miles from ZALPO, cross ZALPO at or above 1,900, clrd ILS Runway 22L approach
CAX777: clrd ILS Rwy 22L appr, CAX777
NY-CAM-AP: CAX777, contact tower 119.1
CAX777: over to tower, good day, CAX777

Switched to Tower frequency

CAX777: good evening Sir, ILS 22L
JFK-TOWER: CAX777, wind 260 @ 08 runway 22L cleared to land

I landed and ...
