At what distance should I clear someone to land?

Hey all,
This is mainly a question when there aren’t many people online with one aircraft requesting to land but not yet in your frequency area. At what distance are you allowed to clear them to land? For example, I am operating as KLAX ATC TWR and there is an aircraft on my frequency at roughly KSNA. They are the only person who is in around and calls inbound requesting to land. At what range am I allowed to clear them to land?

Thanks for all answers, JamesQFA380.


Anytime, after you give them a pattern entry. But only clear when you are sure this plane will be the number you allocate them


Ok, thanks a lot.
