Departure atc question

I’m sorry if this is a duplicate topic. I was just at LAX doing departure and a pilot ask me for an ILS approach to San Francisco do I give the ILS approach to the runways that are in use at the destination airport or do I just give radar vectors thank you any help would be appreciated

Well if you’re departure at LAX, San Fran would be outside coverage area, so you would just give radar vectors towards the general area of SFO, not guide them towards an ILS cone at SFO.


thank you very much I figured that but I just had to be sure. Thank you very much can you please have a moderator close the topic


You need to deny the request then just vector as necessary. If you tell them to expect Radar vectors that’s still incorrect as you have to choose a runway at KSFO.
