I was just on a flight from KMEM to KDTW and was instructed by approach @mbmhwue148 to contact tower @henrik I did but tower wasn’t getting my message for landing clearance! This happened a couple of days ago at KATL as well. I had to cancel both flights so as to avoid getting a violation.
I don’t really understand… could you be a bit more clear?
You were instructed to contact tower but you couldn’t…?
Also be sure to add useful information like device, OS, IF version, etc.
This is a known issue that the controllers are aware of.
Just to add to what Chris said. The best thing to do is follow the instructions and they will at least know that you are hearing their guidance and watch the traffic in the airspace. The controllers will do their best to get you on the ground. ;)
Yeah I sent messages to the Tower severally requesting permission to land but it wasn’t getting through. From the ATC chatter, it seems I was still on the approach frequency even though I have physically connected to the Tower frequency! It is quite weird!
By the way, you tagged the wrong Henrik–I was the one controlling tonight :)
Ha I am sorry! Thanks for the clarification :)
