can someone experienced please explain a few questions I have on the arrival procedures when ATC when App is active:
Is there anything written down the desired altitude and waypoint for each airport when entering the radar control zone, perhaps some kind of approach plates? I’m aware of STARS but I don’t think the real world documents translates well into infinite flight?
At what point to do I contact and “check in” or request the ILS approach with the APP controller? Do I wait for him to ask me to join frequency?
When I “check in” and get a “roger” in return, I assume I just carry on with my flight planned route until told otherwise?
