So I was approaching KSFO after a long flight from KEWR. I was at 33,00ft and descending for my approach. I tune in to Attis information but didn’t have enough information to see which approach tower to contact. There was about 3 approach towers. So I tuned in to any and the frost was send me to another approach tower. Then the next approach tower tune me in to The approach tower Misha Camp was dealing with. All of sudden he reports me for speed and high altitude. I was slowing down but it was taking a while because I was a heavy 787-10. Plus there was a lot of traffic. So I wanna know the reasons for being reported. After a very long flight. I was looking forward to landing this aircraft.
Please send a message to @MishaCamp to discuss the report with him.
PM @MishaCamp for a reason.
TL0s can PM mods (:
Well, then disregard my earlier message… Thanks for letting me know!
Where can we send a PM ? :)

Hello David, I have the same report.
I was doing a Flight between DEN and SFO 3h ago and you were the ATC controller of the approach
I was at approximately 30 miles of SFO and had started my descent. When I was at FL28 I asked an approach to SFO and I have been reported for improper altitude. I am sending this message to understand and not do the same error next time. So do we have a maximum altitude to ask to an approach ?
Please also send a PM to @MishaCamp.
Generally speaking: You should contact approach when passing FL180 (18000feet) with an appropriate speed.
That information was no where to be found.
Still can’t Pm him. Hopefully he sees his cuz there’s others having the same issue.
Mishacamp will turn this post into a Private Message. Just wait for him.
FL280 is quite high to be landing at an airport. You want to be closer to FL100 (10,000ft) or even below that. What was your vertical speed, because weight shouldnt affect descent rate.
These reports are justified. You contact approach when below FL180 or 18000ft. Due to these ghosts being received because of pilot error, I doubt they will get reversed. The best thing to do is to just suck it up, learn from your mistakes and apply what you learned when you will regain access to the expert server in 7 days.
Hope this helps!
For future reference contact approach at FL150 at 260-270 knots
Hey guys, let’s not put this guy a negative way.
I think he understands for one person, and I feel like we shouldn’t have 10+ people telling him the same thing.
We’re just giving him the general rules about contacting approach.
Were not really doing it in a negative way we are just teaching him what to do in the future and to learn from his mistakes.
Really, it’s the the ATC who reported him, it’s their job to make it right and explain why they reported him.
We know that but he made a topic for us all to look at. He also gave us a screeshot and the elevartion he was at. He also asked for our prespective. This is why these topcis are made.
