Center/Tower problem

I was tuned into the London Centre frequency and I requested flight following to LIRF I waited a few minutes and no response and I sent again and I got told to avoid sending duplicate messages. Still no clearance to destination. Should I continue on course? I don’t want to request again because I don’t want to be ghosted.

Just continue on course. London Center is packed and the controller is most likely quite busy.

Yeah. I think the same person is also controlling an airport at the same time

A lot of people are passing over London on approach to Amsterdam - which is by far the busiest airport in the list.


that happened to me a lot!!!
probably cause the centre is busy

Check in is all that is needed.


Pro tip, just check in. It is much easier all round and is the preferred way of doing it.
