Just a thing I just stumbled about: If I want to do pattern work at an airport with no active ATC on tower frequency but a active ATC on Approach.
How is approach handling this? I would think that he has not to care about me cause I stay in the area the Tower is controlling anyway.
If he claims to handle me by telling me I where in an active airspace, I would expect that he keeps me in the pattern, I don’t want to leave pattern attitude, and I don’t want to be vectored away from the pattern.
Yes, I know, always follow ATC instructions. It is more about what is a feasible handling of Approach for aircrafts in the pattern of a airport. What to expect in that case. Are they meant to be responsible? And what should be the goal of their instructions?
