- Pilot users shall not connect to the network while positioned on a runway or taxiway as this may cause conflicts with other aircraft.
- If you are a new or inexperienced user, it is recommended that you place a remark indicating this in your flight plan so air traffic controllers know to provide you with extra assistance if required.
- Traffic using only text mode for communication with connected ATC should execute received instructions before readback.
