I’m just wondering what departure duties I have while I’m operating approach and vise versa.
Lots of people join my approach frequency as soon as they take off and ask for a flight following or request an altitude. Is that standard for IF approach/departure? Or is it proper to not tune in at all if there is no departure available. It clutters up the frequency a bit if I’m operating at a busy airport and have to take care of departing and approaching aircraft so I’m just wondering if I should reply with the instructions they’re requesting or just give them a frequency change straight away.
