Free Beyond ATC LOG Scanner (BLS)

BLS uses the logs to create a transcript of all conversations between you and the tower during a flight.

Where are BATC logs ?

BLS automatically locates the logs for you;

they are always kept in:

<drive>:\users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Skirmish Mode Games, Inc\BeyondATC\player.log


some log files contain no communication between pilot and ATC

Player.log is contains information about your last flight . When you start BATC this file gets wiped and replaced

Player-prev.og contains the previous flight. BATC always overwrites logs unlike FSLTL

BLS gives you the option to copy and rename your logs so they don't get overwritten by BATC.

What does it do?

  • Automatic Pilot's response : CYAN

The more confident you are communicating with ATC , the more purple you will see.

When Speech recognition fails

The Issues tab shows where speech recognition fails and helps you diagnose why you have been 'misunderstood'

When the text is in CYAN, the issue is a bug worth submitting.

When ATC accents are incorrect

There are still cases when ATC unexpectedly speaks with a non regional accent; ie Dutch for Manchester Radar.
