Flying over airport

Hey guys, hope you doing all well. i wanted to ask, if flying over an airport(withATC), am i suppose to contact ATC or not necessary?

You only need to contact ATC flying over an airport with no intention of landing at it if you are within the airports airspace (5NM) and require a transition, this is at 5000ft AAL or below.

oh okay thanks all

Here is your answer. You only contact Tower of you need to request a transition through a (staffed) airport’s airspace. When you’re outside the airspace, don’t contact Tower.

Let us know if you have any questions.
