Approach Tutorial-Flight Following

Aircraft requesting Flight Following wish to follow their chosen flight plan with a route fix to fix or direct to their destination using their desired altitude. As an Approach Controller, you should approve flight following to the max extent possible, however, it will be necessary to issue instructions, voiding an aircraft’s flight plan, when an aircraft is entering a busy airspace requiring sequencing or when conflicting with other aircraft.

In this episode I’ll show you exactly how to handle a flight following request and when you should issue instructions. Thanks for watching!
