Hello! I want to really quickly ask if I will get ghosted if I don’t reply to ATC calls when I am just flying close to a certain airport.
I and a friend are doing an overnight flight, and I noticed that Approach, Departure and Tower are online for CYYZ. We will be flying close to that airport, so we will be in range to be able to contact any of the said frequencies. However, neither of us will be able to, as we will both be asleep by then, so there is no way we will be able to contact any of the frequencies.
So, do we have to contact Approach, Departure or Tower when we’re not arriving at the airport, but flying close to it at a safe altitude (no planes would even be close to having a midair collision with us)? And would that mean a ghost by ATC? I am not familiar with the ghosting system, so if someone could explain if we will be back in Live and how that matters to our rating in IF, I’d really appreciate it!~
