Ok, so i ALWAYS have the same problem .When flying long routes, I can't just turn the AP and let the plane fly itself cause of ATC telling to ''contact XXX center on xxx.xxx ''.Its annoing.I go back and forth with the controllers.I gotta be the whole flight right next to the computer to answer those calls.Same thing if I use the Speeding simulation thing.ATC starts talking and i can't answer.
So in both cases(since I don't answer), what I get is a ''XX-XXX ATC services terminated''.And they close my IFR.
So my questions are:
1)How do I get rid of this annoing ATC handling.
2)How do you open an IFR in flight, without having to start over from the ground, in case that somthing like this happens.
