How to handle strange ATC messages?

I’m At Oakland taxiing to runway 12, when I get “you’re in an active airspace, contact approach” over and over again… What’s the best way to handle that?

Every once in a while while shooting landings at an airport, I get the active airspace message from a different airport, say intentions… How should I handle that?

Fly on the advanced server


Contact approach if needed, simple.

Ignore them, if you are on the PG, if its the Advanced Server report it.

Just ignore it

You can’t contact approach on the ground. The same thing happened to me when i was doing pattern work for someone.


I don’t have the option to contact approach…

I’m in PG, xp11000, standing 100%, but not enough hours for advanced… :(

Just don’t contact, they are spamming you :)

Am I correct in assuming that if I’m working in the pattern with one tower, that I shouldn’t have to respond to other comms?

oh, the person who is on approach Is doing it for fun lol

A little off topic, but how do you imbed someone else’s comment in your reply?

Guess that’s why it’s called playground
