ATC Report Position - Expert Server

I just remembered that a few days ago, I was landing at CYYZ and I reported that I was on final rwy 5. They told me that I’ve already been cleared to land. Should I not be reporting my position to ATC anymore?

You don’t need to report position if you’ve been cleared. You may use it to draw the controller’s attention if you’re convinced that something is wrong, however, such cases are rare.


Please only do this if it is absolutely necessary. I know it’s tempting at times when you are vectored away from the airport or see a gap in the approach line you think you could go in, but please keep this to an absolute minimum as it would otherwise spam the frequency.


You can report your position in case you are in a pattern work and you want to tell the controller that you are going to make a full stop
