ATC warning

I was flying from Heathrow to Schipol when I was starting my decent. I was asked to contact schipol tower but when I tried to switch onto the frequency, schipol tower wasn’t in my ATC menu. Can anyone help please??

Were you within range of the airport? (25NM)

Hi Alexa,

@anon88794458 provides an excellent photo in his post (see below) about when you will be able to contact frequencies/when ATC should send you an on-guard warning. I wouldn’t worry if you’re unable to contact them when asked to - it often happens in TS1 that you’re told to contact a certain frequency but you’re still 200nm out! Just keep going until you’re in-range.

If this was on expert, again, I would just keep going until I’m in range, and I would take some screenshots just in case I got ghosted!

I hope this helps,


EDIT: Here’s the link to the other thread I found the image on:


Thanks I will have a look at this.
