A Reminder on Flight Following & Altitude Requests

Good day Everyone,

This topic is created to be a reminder on the use of Altitude Requests after requesting Flight Following. If you request Flight Following you do not need to do an Altitude Request as it is a given that you are permitted whatever altitude you wish.

Also, we may not respond to a Flight Following but instead give you a heading and altitude instead. This is done because we need to vector you around traffic. Once you are out of danger, we will then give you a resume own navigation and altitude at your discretion. This means that you are now under your original Flight following request and climb to any altitude you require.

For a refresher on this, see Mark’s video for further information.


Hope this helps you and happy flying.
